A timely update to a timeless model.


Don Kirkpatrick's groundbreaking four levels of training evaluation is the most widely used training evaluation model in the world. Ask any group of trainers whether they rely on it in their practice, and you'll get an enthusiastic affirmation.

But how many variations of "Kirkpatrick" are in use today? And what number of misassumptions and faulty practices have crept in over 60 years? The reality is: Quite a few. 

Jim and Wendy Kirkpatrick have written Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Training Evaluation to set the record straight. 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. 

Use the New World Model to better train people, improve the way you work, and, ultimately, contribute to your organization's most crucial goals without breaking the budget.

Why Read Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Training Evaluation? Minimize
Given the current economic climate in which all expenditures are being carefully monitored, there is not better time to use the four levels to create, deliver, measure and validate training that has true organizational value. It is time to put old and even revered practices away.

No more "smile sheets, pre- and post-tests and hope for the best." It is time to drive and leverage training and post-training support and accountability to maximize performance and results. It it time to be strategic business partners. Failing to do so will likely lead to our replacement by YouTube, apps, and avatars.

There is also no better time to create a new standard within the learning industry. 

Stakeholders in business, government, the military and not-for-profits are all seeking cost-effective ways to strengthen business and mission accomplishment. Most are looking to make a difference. 

We believe the New World Kirkpatrick Model grants an opportunity to provide just that.
