Learning and Performance professionals are encouraged to use the Training Value Questionnaire to ensure value is the result of a strategic initiative, typically one that is training-based. The three general question categories will help ensure that the targeted training or other intervention improves organizational performance based on what the executives and/or stakeholders consider valuable. The Training Value Questionnaire identifies:
  • the targeted Return on Expectation (ROE) (Kirkpatrick, 2009), business need and desired results.
  • how training will be reinforced and supported on the job by business partners.
  • what is required to achieve results in addition to training.
Practitioners currently use the tool as a conversation starter at the onset of a training request. To move immediately to the process of designing, developing, and delivering the requested training, a thorough planning process should take place.

Kirkpatrick Partners is a provider of training evaluation and business partnership training, products, consulting and impact studies. Our work is based on the Kirkpatrick Evaluation Model created by Donald L. Kirkpatrick in 1954 as part of his PhD dissertation on the evaluation of the effectiveness of training for supervisors. It is expanded by the Kirkpatrick Business Partnership Model and Kirkpatrick Foundational Principles.

Instead of training ROI, we focus on training return on expectations (ROE). This is a more holistic measurement of all of the benefits realized from a program or initiative, both qualitative and quantitative. We offer courses and workshops on training evaluation and business partnership that equip training professionals to create, demonstrate and measure the business results and value their training yields or supports.

Don's son James (Jim) and daughter-in-law Wendy are pleased to carry on his legacy through Kirkpatrick Partners. Whether you want to earn your Kirkpatrick certification or simply create more value in your organization, we are here to help. Our programs are valuable whether you are a corporate employee, member of government or an independent consultant.

The Kirkpatricks are the authors of nine books, including Evaluating Training Programs, Implementing the Four Levels, Transferring Learning to Results, Kirkpatrick Then and Now, Training on Trial, and The Brunei Window Washer: Bringing Business Partnership to Life.
