Kirkpatrick Model

for Evaluating Training Programs


The Kirkpatrick Model is the worldwide standard for evaluating the effectiveness of training. It considers the value of any type of training, formal or informal, across four levels. Created by Dr. Donald Kirkpatrick, the model is applied before, during and after training to both maximize and demonstrate the value of training to the organization. 


Understanding and using the model is important not just to HRD professionals but also to managers and individuals who play a critical role in ensuring that training programs can be improved and applied to create positive impact to the organization.
