Entries for 2016

In September of 2015, the Centralized Learning and Development (CLD) team of the Central Arizona Project (CAP) welcomed Kirkpatrick Partners to their facility to conduct a Kirkpatrick Business Partnership Analysis. This two-part series will show what the analysis found, the final results and how CAP's CLD team is carrying on Don Kirkpatrick's legacy with their work.

The CAP is Arizona's largest resource for renewable water supplies, designed to bring about 1.5 million acre-feet of water from the Colorado River to Central and Southern Arizona every year. More than 5 million people live in areas where CAP water is delivered.

CAP created the CLD team in 2013, the members of which attended a Kirkpatrick Four Levels® Evaluation Certification Program - Bronze Level in August 2015. The team hoped to learn a common language and figure out what L&D efforts were needed to contribute to and demonstrate impact on their organization. More so, they were committed to executing what they learned in order to maximize job performance and results.

May 9, 2016 will mark two years since Don's passing. It is still hard.

It is also good. I still hear his words of guidance and encouragement when I re-read articles he wrote or view videos of him teaching. I am still reminded of who he was when I look at his picture in my office, or put his final birthday card to me on our mantle, or when I fish in a trout stream in his beloved Wisconsin. 


Those are my private memories, but I do have something that might interest you, something that he intended to be for you.

In his final days, I sat with him with a pen and paper and asked him what he wanted to say to you -- his precious, final words about his four levels. Wendy and I took his words and included them as part of the foreword of our new book, Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Training Evaluation, published by ATD Press. Here is an excerpt:

Kirkpatrick Levels 3 and 4 have intimidated training professionals for decades. Some think they have cracked the code with a highly standardized 90-day post-training survey, but this is not adequate and could even be counterproductive. Others think that 360-degree surveys are the key, but this is not a complete solution either. 

The time for being intimidated is over. Getting to Kirkpatrick Levels 3 and 4 is not as difficult, time-consuming or expensive as many believe. Our first tip to conquer this challenge is to remember that the end is the beginning.

Have you been using the same evaluation form after your training programs for as long as you can remember? Are you still struggling to get an acceptable response rate? Do you wonder what people really think of your training? Are you certain that you are even asking the right questions?

One morning while on vacation, Wendy and I went through the resort's buffet line for breakfast. We got our food, set it down at a table by the pool and then left the table for about four minutes to get our beverages and talk to a fellow guest. 

When we returned, our breakfast was being ravaged by local birds. Eggs, potatoes, bread and fruit were being eaten, tossed about and generally destroyed. Other guests were sitting nearby, but they were unconcerned and not trying to protect our food. 


A metaphor formed before our eyes. Similar to how Wendy and I did not protect our food, many organizations do little or nothing to protect their training investments.

Jim recently held a training event at Fort Sill in Oklahoma. The three-day program was designed to help instructors take their roles as trainers beyond the classroom.

"The instructors and trainers are coming to learn how to redefine learning and development to more than just being training-event based with classes and curriculum, to a package approach- not only training people but helping to make sure they actually apply what they learned and that what they're teaching contribute to mission accomplishment," Jim commented.
