Webinar Recording Details


Are you being asked to create or deliver training that “works,” meaning it provides measurable performance improvement and enhances organizational results? You are not alone. Ironically, evaluating training value is often an afterthought, considered only after training is complete.

Learn directly from Jim and Wendy Kirkpatrick, creators of the New World Kirkpatrick Model, how to start any training program right, so that value is built in and can effectively be demonstrated when it is complete. Even if you inherit existing training programs, you will find out how to incorporate small tactics that will make a big difference in creating training value.

Guest presenter, Donald Murphy, an attorney with the State of Indiana, will share how he has used these ideas to train public defenders to prepare for and succeed in their cases.

By participating in this program, you will discover how to:
  • Increase on-the-job application of what is taught
  • Maximize results from your training programs
  • Implement a Blended Evaluation Plan™ to gather complete program data

Even if you cannot participate live, register for this content-packed program, and you will receive a recording of the event, as well as evaluation tools and samples to use in your work.
