Evaluating the Effectiveness of Your Training Program

Globalization, advances in technology, and the competition for market share are all putting pressure on organizations to respond to challenges more quickly, creatively, and less expensively than in the past. Human resource and benefits professionals, trainers, personnel managers, supervisors, team leaders, administrators, directors and controllers are all being asked to justify how money is spent, and to demonstrate that their training programs are producing viable outcomes that have measurable value to organizations. Organization members are realizing that there is a need to understand the effectiveness of their training programs, and to make decisions based on data, rather than on instinct or intuition. They are looking for ideas and methods to help them to make formative changes in their training programs, as well as systems, policies and practices that support training. Evaluation is one way to do this.

By ordering this on-demand webinar, you will learn how to develop a basic training evaluation plan that can be implemented in a systematic manner within their organizations.
