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.
Just because an approach to training evaluation is common does not mean that it is good. 

Do you really want to throw away all the money and effort you've put into a program by making mistakes that are easy to avoid?

Don't sacrifice the quality of your training program, and possibly even your job. Read the new article by Jim and Wendy Kirkpatrick just published in the July/August edition of Training Industry Magazine to learn the top training evaluation mistakes and how to avoid them.

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 article is entitled Top Training Evaluation Mistakes and How to Avoid Them and can be found in the "New Resources" module at the top of the page once you are logged in.

Good morning. I wanted to find the article but couldn't (unless I'm missing something). I logged in, went to the resources tab and couldn't find anything like the instructions noted: "The article is entitled Top Training Evaluation Mistakes and How to Avoid Them and can be found in the "New Resources" module at the top of the page once you are logged in." There was no "New Resources" section at the top of the page and no search function to search for the title of the article. I refreshed the page and still nothing. Could you please let me know how I access the article? Thank you.
