Replaced by an appThis week, we introduce our Could You Be Replaced By an App? quick tip series.

The role of training professionals has changed as technology has advanced.

Fifteen years ago, it may have been enough to design or deliver a great training class. If that's all you do these days, however, you are in danger of being replaced by a smart phone app or other technology marvels that can do the same thing on demand, for little or no money.

What can you, as a training professional, do to protect your organizational role and the future of our industry?

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.
