Official Blog of the One and Only Kirkpatrick® Minimize
Welcome to the Kirkpatrick Partners blog, where we strive to share the most pertinent training and evaluation related tips and thoughts each week. Please check back often, or simply subscribe to our RSS feed to be sure you never miss an update.

Is there a lack of connection between your training and actual performance outcomes / key organizational results?

If so, you may find yourself in a precarious position when budgets get cut on things in your organization's "nice to have" category. Wouldn't you prefer to be in the "must have" category?

Read this interview with Jim Kirkpatrick conducted by Amedirh, a human resources management company in Mexico, to learn how to not only put your resources to good use, but also prove to your stakeholders that you did.

You will need to log in (or create a free account if you don't already have one) to access this article in our Resources Library. The English version of the article, entitled The Kirkpatrick Model: How to Improve Training, is located in the "New Resources" module at the top of the page. 

Did you know that Kirkpatrick Partners also offers some resources in other languages? A Spanish version of this article, entitled El Modelo Kirkpatrick: Como Mejorar la Capacitacion, is available; scroll down to the final module in the Resources Library, "Resources in Other Languages," to see this and offerings in other languages such as French, Chinese and Dutch.
