The Kirkpatrick Methodology Minimize
Dr. Donald Kirkpatrick created the Kirkpatrick Model as the subject of his Ph.D. dissertation in 1954. Since then, the Kirkpatrick Model has become the industry standard for training evaluation. 

In 2008, Dr. Jim Kirkpatrick and Wendy Kirkpatrick created the Kirkpatrick Business Partnership Model, an expansion of the original four levels, as discussed in their book Training on Trial. They created the Kirkpatrick Foundational Principles to explain the key beliefs underpinning Kirkpatrick evaluation. 

In 2010, Jim and Wendy Kirkpatrick clarified the original intent of the Kirkpatrick four levels with the New World Kirkpatrick Model.

Stephen Covey's Comments Minimize

"Kirkpatrick’s four levels is the best I’ve ever seen in evaluating training effectiveness. It is sequentially integrated and comprehensive. It goes far beyond ‘smile sheets’ into actual learning, behavior changes and actual results, including long-term evaluation. An outstanding model!”

Stephen R. Covey
