Of all the things that keep you busy as a training professional, what percentage of those actually contribute to the mission success of your organization? Don't mistake action for contribution.

Much of what learning professionals do does not directly contribute to business or mission value. This happens despite the best of intentions; the training department receives a request for training from the business and works very hard to fulfill it. Unfortunately, business partners may not always be skilled in assessing the appropriate training and performance needs, and the organization goes down the wrong path.

Many training professionals are generalists who are required to know a little bit about a lot of different topics. One common theme, though, is that any training or intervention is supposed to “work,” meaning it improves on-the-job performance and contributes measurably to key organizational results. Sounds simple enough, but this basic principle has baffled many accomplished training professionals for decades.

In this program, Jim Kirkpatrick and Wendy Kirkpatrick will share the most important evaluation considerations that should be built into every mission-critical program. This interactive webinar will allow you to ask your own questions before and during the program, and the most popular questions will get answered live by the Kirkpatricks.
