​Marta Wilmoth was our 2015 ATD Don Kirkpatrick Scholarship winner. She has earned her bronze level certification and is implementing what she learned. 

In her second update, Marta explains why keeping the end in sight is crucial to implementing her training program.

The Kirkpatrick Levels of Evaluation has been crucial to keeping the end in mind throughout the development of our new and improved macys.com New Hire training program. As part of the Kirkpatrick Levels of Evaluation, our organizational purpose, the business need for updated New Hire Training, and the stakeholder's expectations were identified. These key components have served as the foundation for developing the new training program and pinpointing the metrics and methods that will be used to measure success.

The live launch date of the reinvented macys.com New Hire Training will be September 26, 2016. By my next update, I will have Level 1: Reaction and possibly some Level 2: Behavior results to share with the ATD and Kirkpatrick community.

First Things First: Getting Started with Kirkpatrick® Training Evaluation
February 1, 2017

Are you being asked to create or deliver training that "works," meaning it provides measurable performance improvement and enhances organizational results? You are not alone. Ironically, evaluating training value is often an afterthought, considered only after training is complete. 

Learn directly from Jim and Wendy Kirkpatrick, creators of the New World Kirkpatrick Model, how to start any training program right, so that value is built in and can effectively be demonstrated when it is complete. Even if you inherit existing training programs, you will find out how to incorporate small tactics that will make a big difference in creating training value. 

Don't miss Jim and Wendy Kirkpatrick's new webinar, "First Things First: Getting Started with Kirkpatrick® Training Evaluation" on March 2, 2017. Click here for more information
