Wendy and I are back in the office after an exciting time in Denver for the annual ATD International Conference and Expo. This was my 15th year attending and presenting. During my few minutes of reflection on the 3 days we spent in Denver, I am reminded that each of those years had its own unique flavor. 2016 was my second favorite behind 2011, which featured my dad's farewell to friends at ATD and the L&D world.

What made this one special was the soft launch of our new book, Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Training Evaluation. The book was only made available to conference attendees, and will not be offered to the general public until October 2016. From my vantage point, it was not a soft launch at all. First, the sales of our book may have set a conference record, selling more copies than those of keynote presenters. Second, the foreign rights manager is working towards having the book translated into eight languages by the end of the year. No other Kirkpatrick book has been available in so many different languages.


For those of you who really know Kirkpatrick, you know that numbers are only part of a story. What encourages us the most was the collective passion of the book contributors. They shared their own stories of success during concurrent sessions and at an evening reception.

Jim recently posted a thought-provoking question in our Kirkpatrick Evaluation discussion group in LinkedIn. Looking into the proverbial crystal ball of the training industry, what does the future look like?

An overwhelming number of responses focused on the application of technology during training programs. This ranges from short videos to complete web-based training. L&D professionals are starting to see a shift in focus towards graphics and gamification over sound instructional design. 

This is good news for L&D technology companies and instructional designers who are technology savvy. However, it is not good news for those who are not. The technology trend can and will eliminate the need for many L&D professionals.

With the increase in technology, Jim reiterates that we do not need to lose our human factor. Technology is a tool to help with certain L&D functions; however, it is not capable of replacing human-based learning modalities and pre- and post-training support. 

So, how do L&D professionals maximize technology and involve themselves with the business side without losing their human touch?
