Build a Better Reaction Sheet: Tips from Jim and Wendy Kirkpatrick
Thursday, June 11
10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern

Have you been using the same evaluation form after your training programs for as long as you can remember? Are you struggling to get an acceptable response rate? Do you wonder what people REALLY think of your training? Are you certain that you are even asking the right questions?

Jim and Wendy Kirkpatrick, the creators of the New World Kirkpatrick Model, will address these and other questions during this practical session. They will share the most modern and effective ways to obtain the data and information you need after your training programs using a blended evaluation approach. They will provide specific tips that define what information to gather, when to obtain it and how to ask the questions in a way that will yield the most useful information possible from your post-program evaluation efforts. Every registrant will also receive a sample evaluation form to use and adapt for their own training programs.

Don’t miss this new, information-packed program!

EvaluationAre you sending out 90-day follow-up surveys but getting such a low response rate that you feel like you might as well not even bother?

Are you attempting to evaluate Level 3 Behavior with a follow-up survey but wondering if the results really indicate true transfer of learning to the workplace?

Two current threads in the Kirkpatrick Evaluation discussion group in LinkedIn speak to these issues.

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.
