Getting to Kirkpatrick Levels 3 and 4 is not as difficult, time-consuming or expensive as some believe. Our first tip is to remember that the end is the beginning.

This could be profitable sales growth, saving lives or keeping the nation safe. Use this Level 4 Result as your target for any and all efforts in the initiative. If you cannot describe how the intended training would in some way positively impact your overall result or mission, you aren’t on the right track.
