Why work with us?

What our customers
We had Kirkpatrick Partners audit our processes to determine alignment with the New World Kirkpatrick Model. The findings were a balance between what we should continue and a development plan to move forward. We continue improving against our plan. The audit gave us good solid information, but the greatest benefit was the partnership with Kirkpatrick Partners. They don’t walk away after the initial scope. They have truly become valued partners who are always willing to take that extra step in active listening, checking in, and giving sound advice and guidance. This process has been impactful not only to our learning and development efforts, but more importantly, as a systematic process that endures for us.
Our training department was directed to demonstrate the value we bring to the business. A Kirkpatrick® Impact Study found hidden value in our efforts and detailed recommendations for increased business impact in future initiatives.
I applied the recommendations to an important new program. We systematically applied the Kirkpatrick principles in two pilot districts. Results in both districts improved over the next year while the other eight districts continued to deteriorate!
Our stakeholders were convinced of the value of training. It improved our departmental image and my future as a learning professional.
We conducted a Kirkpatrick® Impact Study to determine the impact of our e-learning program on the bottom line. Preliminary findings showed only a modest contribution to overall business results. A review of all quantitative and qualitative data revealed five additional success factors that, along with the training, made a significant impact.
The important lesson we learned is the importance of recognizing all success factors, and partnering with the business to enhance and align all of them for maximum program value.
