During the 60 years that the Kirkpatrick Model has existed, people around the world have done their best to faithfully implement it. Unfortunately, what often occurs is little more than smile sheets, pre- and post-tests, and hope for the best.

It does not need to be that way. In this webcast, you will learn practical techniques to connect training and evaluation to improved on-the-job performance and subsequent business results. You will also come away with a sample evaluation form and tips to better see how well your participants are reacting to your training and learning what they need to do back on the job. You’ll learn to:

  • Begin all programs with a focus on having an impact on Kirkpatrick Level 4 results.
  • Create a strong Level 3 on-the-job application plan.
  • Streamline methods for evaluating Levels 1 and 2 to free up resources for a Level 3 plan.
