Join Kirkpatrick Certified Facilitator Stacy Cook in Virginia on September 27 for the 2016 HR Academy.

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?

Reaction sheets often contain an option labeled "Not Applicable." This choice is appropriate when respondents may not have the information or experience to answer; however, the opt-out choice should be used strategically and not provided as an option for all items. Allowing respondents to skip questions for which they certainly hold an opinion results in the loss of valuable information.

Pre-Order Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Training Evaluation
June 17, 2016

You can now pre-order Jim and Wendy's new book, Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Training Evaluation.

Discover a complete blueprint for implementing the model in a way that truly maximizes business results. And delve into Jim and Wendy’s new findings that, together with Don Kirkpatrick’s work, create the New World Kirkpatrick Model, a powerful methodology that melds people with metrics.



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.
