Kirkpatrick Evaluation Proves Training Value

Since 2012 ODI has deployed Kirkpatrick Four Levels (R) in the design and evaluation of each programme it has delivered. Information about each of the four levels – L1 Reaction, L2 Learning, L3 Behaviour and L4 Results - has been collected in a consistent way across each programme; providing a substantial database across 138 programmes able to be usefully analysed.  

We have recently analysed that information as a research project, from which we have identified what works and what does not.  As a result we have made some significant changes to our programme design that improves their effectiveness and our clients' results.

Below is a download link to our summarised research findings.

I invited ODI into Napier City Council for Culture and Engagement surveying following a previous experience with them.  Through their consultant, Teresa Callow, they met every aspect of what was needed and worked collaboratively with NCC people throughout the design, administration and reporting phases of the project.  I am impressed with how Teresa supported me and the organisation in communicating the survey results back into NCC. I’d be more than happy to engage them again. They really are fantastic to work with!
