We were speechless as we read an article penned by Dr. Don Kirkpatrick in 1956 that neither of us had ever seen previously. The article, published in the Training Journal, now known as T+D Magazine, is one of the earliest writings we now know of by Don on the topic of training evaluation.

As we read, we wondered what other mysteries and surprises exist in the history of the evolution of the four levels.

As an annual tradition, Jim Kirkpatrick shares a special Thanksgiving message each year. Enjoy this heartfelt holiday note worth sharing.

Here in the U.S., the fourth Thursday of every November is, of course, Thanksgiving. This year, it falls on November 23. Many view this holiday as a day to pause, count our many blessings and express thanks for what each of us has, often celebrating by gathering with friends and family to enjoy a big meal.

In counting my blessings, I am particularly thankful for my fishing buddies, our many freedoms, my health, a company that seems to be doing a lot of good for a lot of people, and for people like you who believe in what we stand for.

This year is a bit different from past years, though.

Merriest of Greetings to You,

I just got off the phone with a customer, and we both took turns answering the question, "Are you ready for the holidays?" I am sorry to report that both of us said, "No. Still too much work to do."

Our Day of ThanksgivingOur Thanksgiving in the United States falls on Thursday, November 24 this year. This also would have been my mother's 90th birthday. A double celebration? It depends on how I choose to look at it. One way would be to say that because she didn't live to see this birthday, it is a sad day. Another way would be for me to think, "She lived a full and rich 87 years, and I am thankful that she did not suffer in death." I choose the latter; thus, it is a double celebration for me.
