Training on Trial Workshop Minimize

Program Description

For most learning professionals and organizations, training is “on trial,” being charged with incurring expenses in excess of its value to the organization. This workshop will define the basics of demonstrating the value of training to the bottom line of your business.

This session will clarify why measures such as numbers of courses held and attendees do not equal value in the eyes of our key business partners, or “corporate jury.” It will bring to light the key metrics that are important to the business and how you can support them.

You will learn how, through business partnership, you can solidify the importance of the workplace learning organization to the company and enjoy a secure position regardless of economic fluctuations. You will come away with concrete ideas for how to obtain your own “not guilty” verdict.

Based on the book by the same name, this interactive workshop facilitated by the world leader in training evaluation is not to be missed!

Stephen Covey's Comments Minimize
"Kirkpatrick’s four levels is the best I’ve ever seen in evaluating training effectiveness. It is sequentially integrated and comprehensive. It goes far beyond ‘smile sheets’ into actual learning, behavior changes and actual results, including long-term evaluation. An outstanding model!”
