For example, the needs assessment team should start with why , with a clear business measure at the beginning, ensure that the proper solution is implemented and develop objectives at multiple levels, up to and including impact. Sometimes simple averages and ratios will do.

In this context, the adoption of assessment methodologies becomes a critical imperative for businesses and training organizations. Return on investment (ROI) is a quantification of the relation between the benefits of a program and its costs [benefit-cost ratio (BCR)]. The Phillips ROI Methodology took this model a step further, adding the ROI calculation as a fifth level. Learning – Frequency: Typically pre- and post-training assessments.

How do we measure value creation from training?

Next, knowledge acquisition is measured a few weeks later, to assess how effectively knowledge and skills have been passed on to the learners. Evaluating training ROI involves more than simply calculating a financial ratio. It means assessing how much value has been created using key performance indicators (KPIs) that have been defined before the training begins. Phillips J, Pulliam Phillips P.

Evaluating Training Effectiveness and ROI


What reason is there to conduct further trainings if the benefits of the ones already conducted have not been assessed? How to convince one’s manager that it is worthwhile (and profitable) to continue the training program and expand it to include other departments if you have no data to profit cost ratio to back you up? In this article, I would like to focus on the fifth level, which was suggested for addition by Jack Phillips.

Jack Phillips, chairman of ROI Institute Inc., Phillips, who started the ROI Institute in 1993 and has written a number of books on the subject, adds a fifth level, return on investment, to the taxonomy. Then measure level 3, behavior, likely through participants’ self-assessments. To measure level 4, or impact, Phillips said learning leaders take the predetermined outcome measure. Then compare this figure to the cost of training using a benefit-cost ratio.

This checklist is a tool for assessing the quality of the course before it is deployed. In other words, it’s the final assessment you’re probably already doing in your courses – a series of questions, one or more simulations, instructor observation of learner actions, and so forth. Most of us require learners to correctly answer at least a certain percentage (perhaps 85% or 90%) of the Level 2 assessment questions. With a cost-benefit ratio of 2.14, you can expect $2.14
