In this indispensable companion to the classic book Evaluating Training Programs: The Four Levels, Donald and James Kirkpatrick draw on their decades of collective experience to offer practical guidance for putting any or all of the Four Levels into practice. In addition, they offer a comprehensive list of the ten requirements for an effective training program and show how to decide what to evaluate, how to get managers to support the evaluation process, and how to use the Four Levels to construct a compelling chain of evidence demonstrating the contribution of training to the bottom line.
