Evaluating the Impact of Your Leadership Programs
Tuesday, September 27, 2016
McLean, Virginia 

Many organizations place significant investments into leadership development programs of all shapes and sizes. Yet, very few have well-designed mechanisms for determining whether these programs are delivering on the expectations of the program’s stakeholders. Which program components are worthwhile and which fall flat? What is getting in the way of allowing leaders to use what they learn? What are champions of the leadership development program doing to make sure it is successful?

This session will delve into a case study from an IT consulting firm that instituted a leadership development program for all supervisors to build critical skills necessary to help the company grow. Learn how they implemented a world-class evaluation system using the New World Kirkpatrick Model, one of the foremost learning evaluation frameworks. Hear about early results of this evaluation and how it is being used to show impact on the bottom line. Lastly, come learn about best practices and lessons learned that you can implement to enhance your evaluation efforts back at the office.

How often are you providing an opt-out option in your post-training surveys?

Did you know that by allowing your participants to opt-out, you could be losing valuable information?

Allowing respondents to skip questions for which they certainly hold an opinion results in the loss of valuable information.

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.
