Official Blog of the One and Only Kirkpatrick® Minimize

Welcome to the Kirkpatrick Partners blog, where we strive to share the most pertinent training and evaluation related tips and thoughts each week. Please check back often, or simply subscribe to our RSS feed to be sure you never miss an update.


There are three easy ways to connect to free training evaluation tools and resources. Each option has its own benefits. Find your preferred avenue of communication, or discover a new favorite.

Our website,, is a repository of valuable training evaluation information. Register as a user to access 100+ resources free of charge.

It's a multi-media feast that has something for everyone: whitepapers, videos, articles, charts and diagrams, podcasts, resources in other languages and much more. One of our more popular downloads is our Blended Evaluation Plan® form. You'll also receive our weekly newsletter filled with helpful training evaluation content.

The Official Blog of the One and Only Kirkpatrick® is where you'll find our weekly feature, including posts by Jim Kirkpatrick, Wendy Kirkpatrick and guest contributors. An index on the lower right of the page makes navigation easy.

Kirkpatrick Partners has a presence on all major social media outlets. It's a quick, easy way to keep up with the latest news and announcements.

It's no surprise that our biggest social media presence is on LinkedIn, the preferred site for many business professionals. In addition to connecting with Jim, Wendy and the Kirkpatrick company page, you can also join our LinkedIn Discussion group, aptly named "Kirkpatrick Evaluation." Enjoy robust peer-to-peer conversation with other training professionals.

I'm wondering if you all have any tips on compiling and presenting the findings gained from the evaluations? I can't seem to locate anything on that aspect of evaluations.
