Description

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 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.

Don’t miss this chance to ensure that you are implementing the best and latest evaluation methods in your work, and to get your questions answered.
