Company Overview Minimize

Kirkpatrick Partners is proud to be the One and Only Kirkpatrick® company, and the only provider of authentic Kirkpatrick products and programs. The company carries on the work of Don Kirkpatrick, PhD, and the Kirkpatrick Model of training evaluation, also referred to as the four levels of evaluation. Kirkpatrick Partners offers training, consulting, impact studies, books and other written resources on the Kirkpatrick Model and related concepts.

Kirkpatrick Partners is a family-owned small business established in 2008 to respond to a growing need for companies to rationalize the resources dedicated to training. Originally called Kirkpatrick Consulting, the company was renamed to better represent the full line of products and services it provides to the training and business community.

Kirkpatrick Partners is firmly grounded in the principles that Don Kirkpatrick created over 50 years ago. Don served as the company's Honorary Chairman until his passing in May of 2014. Jim Kirkpatrick, Don's son, is a Senior Consultant with the company. Don's daughter-in-law, Wendy Kirkpatrick, is the Founder and President of Kirkpatrick Partners.

Kirkpatrick Partners proudly continues to reinforce the importance of the Kirkpatrick levels of training evaluation around the world. In addition, the newer Kirkpatrick Business Partnership Model and Kirkpatrick Foundational Principles underpin all products and programs the company provides. 

Kirkpatrick Partners is based in the Atlanta, GA area.

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.

Don's son James (Jim) and daughter-in-law Wendy are pleased to carry on his legacy through 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.
