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.

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:
