Attend this informative webinar with Jim and Wendy Kirkpatrick, creators of the New World Kirkpatrick Model, to find out the most common execution errors, what is at risk if you make them and how to avoid them in the first place. Pick up practical tips that any training professional can implement to maximize their program value and demonstrate it to their organizations and stakeholders.
