Since its creation in 1959, Donald Kirkpatrick's four-level model for evaluating training programs - reaction, learning, behavior, and results - has become the most widely used approach to training evaluation in the corporate, government, and academic worlds. However, trainers today are feeling increased pressure to prove whether instruction is worth its cost. And calculating and presenting results (Step 4) becomes tricky when, despite training, workers aren't fulfilling Step 3: applying what they've learned to their behavior. This book takes on this age-old challenge, first examining why learned concepts don't make it into practice, then offering solutions that will work in the real world. Coauthor James Kirkpatrick, a training practitioner, introduces five prerequisites that help an organization achieve ultimate training success. He includes practical examples (such as Toyota and Nextel) from his own work, plus 12 best-practice case studies.

Review:

"Don and Jim get to the heart of evaluation in Implementing Kirkpatrick's Four Levels. Their insights on management buy-in tactics, and many practical examples of how to execute comprehensive level three and four evaluations are truly invaluable. As no industry dynamics are exactly the same, I found the flexibility of options/tools/resources around learning evaluations to be credible and comprehensive."
--Barbara Hewitt, Executive Director, MGM Grand University

"Unless training directly addresses an organization's need, and unless the training professional can prove this with "evidence," the value of the program (or the entire training department) may be missed. What better authors to address this than Don and Jim Kirkpatrick!"
--Allison A.S. Wimms, Senior Training and Development Specialist, Johns Hopkins HealthCare LLC

"Without Kirkpatrick's Four Levels, we would all be flying blind! This new book is another very important addition to our evaluation body of knowledge and will provide very practical solutions to your evaluation problems."
--Christopher R. Hardy, Ph.D., Director, Strategic Planning & Customer Relationship Management, Defense Acquisition University

"Don and Jim Kirkpatrick have once again stepped up to help learning organizations address their measurement needs. Their new book takes their previous research to new heights."
--Kent Barnett, President, Knowledge Advisors
