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
