Lot of material of the internet on the Kirkpatrick Model. But to implement it, ig requires lot of willpower from management, HR. participants and finally from trainer's side. These things that look very beautiful on paper are equally difficult to implement also. What is meaning of human mindset or attitude can be revealed only when we implement such things.
To implement this model, lot of preparatory work is required from management, HR or training, participants and from trainers' side. My years in training have shown me that barely 1% of the companies show willingness to reach to Level III this model. The worst of all, scores of trainers or HR do not know even existence of this model.
If you have any case study on implementation of this model, please forward it to me.

i agree wth you on the requirement and preparatory aspect of kirkpatrick's model or for that matter any training model.No doubt,just knowing something is not an end in itself but at least its a beginning.HR has ceased to be just a admin function now,and to bring in the change we have to incorporate some changes ourselves.

Completely agree with you, our HR Leaders expect world class results without supporting and we have gone crazy in implementing the Transfer of Learning. If not insurmountable but yes it is difficult. Please share if you something on how best we can implement the transfer of learning apart from pre and post assessment. To which level we can take it and the kind of support needed from the stakeholders.
