Kirkpatrick® Business Partnership Analysis

There is no question that training is "on trial." Every type of organization is trying to validate the value that the learning function provides to the whole.  How do you think your learning department stacks up?

The Kirkpatrick® Business Partnership Analysis identifies which of your existing processes build and leverage business value. It also includes a detailed report of specific actions you can take to increase your value to the bottom line. 

The Kirkpatrick Business Partnership Analysis gives you the credibility of an objective outside expert. The process is completed by the company that literally wrote the book on business partnership and training value. Conduct the analysis before you are put on trial, and build the processes and systems that will secure your "not guilty" verdict with confidence.

Kirkpatrick Partners is a provider of training evaluation and business partnership training, products, consulting and impact studies. Our work is based on the Kirkpatrick Evaluation Model created by Donald L. Kirkpatrick in 1954 as part of his PhD dissertation on the evaluation of the effectiveness of training for supervisors. It is expanded by the Kirkpatrick Business Partnership Model and Kirkpatrick Foundational Principles.

Instead of training ROI, we focus on training return on expectations (ROE). This is a more holistic measurement of all of the benefits realized from a program or initiative, both qualitative and quantitative. We offer courses and workshops on training evaluation and business partnership that equip training professionals to create, demonstrate and measure the business results and value their training yields or supports.

Donald (Don), James (Jim), and Wendy Kirkpatrick are pleased to be united as Kirkpatrick Partners. Whether you want to earn your Kirkpatrick certification or simply create more value in your organization, we are here to help. Our programs are valuable whether you are a corporate employee, member of government or an independent consultant.

The Kirkpatricks are the authors of nine books, including Evaluating Training Programs, Implementing the Four Levels, Transferring Learning to Results, Kirkpatrick Then and Now, Training on Trial, and The Brunei Window Washer: Bringing Business Partnership to Life.
