Kirkpatrick Partners and KnowledgeAdvisors, two industry leaders in learning measurement and analytics, have announced the launch of the Kirkpatrick® New World Edition of Metrics that Matter®.
Bringing together the Kirkpatrick methodology from Kirkpatrick Partners and cloud-based analytics technology from KnowledgeAdvisors, this dynamic system combines the best and most comprehensive training evaluation model in the world with the most powerful talent analytics platform in the industry.
The Kirkpatrick New World Edition of Metrics That Matter is an automated, end-to-end learning and performance management system. With this system, organizations can create and execute evaluation plans that demonstrate the organizational value of mission-critical initiatives and streamline the necessary evaluation of all other programs.
“The Kirkpatrick New World Edition of Metrics that Matter is a great new system for KnowledgeAdvisors clients, and for any company that currently relies on the Kirkpatrick New World methodology to guide their learning programs,” said Kent Barnett, Founder, Chairman and CEO of KnowledgeAdvisors.
The Kirkpatrick Edition of Metrics that Matter provides many benefits, including:
- A new planning tool that leads users through the Kirkpatrick methodology to plan programs and initiatives that start with the end in mind
- Exclusive tools and templates developed by the Kirkpatricks
- Dashboards to monitor and report program progress, and provide the intelligence to make good decisions that will maximize program outcomes
- Internal and external benchmarking capabilities
- Automated reporting technology to easily and professionally report program results to stakeholders
- Process automation to make program evaluation scalable, repeatable and capable of contributing to a final demonstration of value to stakeholders
- Safe storage of training evaluation documents, tools and data.
“This powerful platform is the first and only automated evaluation system authorized by Kirkpatrick Partners, and completely in keeping with the New World Kirkpatrick methodology. It follows the model start-to-finish in order to generate maximum business impact,” said Wendy Kirkpatrick, President, Kirkpatrick Partners.
The Kirkpatrick Model is the industry standard for measuring the organizational value of training. It was created in the 1950s by Dr. Donald Kirkpatrick as the subject of his Ph.D. dissertation. Since then, the model has been used to evaluate all types of training programs worldwide.
The four levels in the Kirkpatrick Model -- reaction, learning, behavior, and results -- have stood the test of time through their powerful simplicity. The model emphasizes starting with the end in mind and partnering with the business to achieve the highest level results. It holistically covers all stages of a program, including planning, execution and demonstration of value.
