Dashe & Thomson

I have been blogging a lot about Training Evaluation this year—mostly Kirkpatrick , but also Brinkerhoff and Scriven. I just realized that I haven’t included a single word about Jack Phillips , who introduced Return on Investment (ROI) as Level 5 to Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels of Evaluation. My first exposure to Phillips’ ROI—although I didn’t realize it at the time—was through a colleague who introduced me to Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels. During a follow-up evaluation.
