October Evening Program – Presented by Richard Pearlstein
Many organizations don’t evaluate beyond Kirkpatrick’s Level 1. While some organizations evaluate at Level 2, very few evaluate at Level 3, and even fewer at Level 4. Without Level 3 and 4 evaluations, organizations have no evidence that their HPT interventions make any difference on the job. Worse, positive Level 1 evaluations may correlate negatively with learning. Consequently, entertainment may be confused with learning in many organizations.
What are common challenges to evaluating HPT interventions effectively? Rich will provide some examples and solutions. More importantly, he will solicit participants’ stories of evaluation challenges they have encountered on the job. Participants will work in small groups to consider evaluation challenges they have encountered, and ways in which they can help organizations overcome them.
