    Igniting the Inner Fire: Kirkpatrick Levels 3 and 4

    January 19, 2017 

    Training is still “on trial,” charged with incurring expenses in excess of the value it provides to the organization. 

    Training must reinvent itself and transcend the classroom. Attend this hands-on workshop to learn tactics for building programs and initiatives that enhance on-the-job performance and impact the bottom line. 

    The information and activities included in this workshop focus on specific tactics at Levels 3 and 4. You will learn ideas that all professionals can implement in their own organizations. 

    Whether you are new to learning and development or an industry veteran, this workshop will teach you the newest and most powerful ways to implement the four levels, directly from the creators of the Kirkpatrick Model. 

    After this session, you will be able to:

    • Define the true desired result for any program or initiative 
    • Determine specific tactics to influence on-the-job behavior for a program or initiative 
    • Integrate elements that enhance on-the-job behavior and bottom-line results into a program planning process

    Click here for more details on the program.

    All participants will receive a complimentary copy of the newest Kirkpatrick book, "Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Training Evaluation," as a thank you from our chapter for your support. 

    Dr. Jim Kirkpatrick will also be available for book signing at the conclusion of the workshop.   

    Our Presenter: Dr. Jim Kirkpatrick

    Dr. Jim Kirkpatrick is the Senior Consultant for Kirkpatrick Partners. He is a thought leader in training evaluation and the creator of the New World Kirkpatrick Model.

    Using his 15 years of experience in the corporate world, including eight years as a training manager, Jim trains and consults for corporate, government, military and humanitarian organizations around the world.

    Jim delivers lively keynote addresses and conducts workshops on topics including maximizing business results, creating powerful training and evaluation strategies, building and leveraging business partnerships and increasing the transfer of learning to on-the-job behaviors. 

    Jim has co-written three books with his father, Don Kirkpatrick, the creator of the Kirkpatrick Model. He also has written four books with his wife, Wendy, including: Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Training Evaluation and Training on TrialJim and Wendy also served as the subject matter experts for the United States Office of Personnel Management’s Training Evaluation Field Guide: Demonstrating the Value of Training at Every Level.
