Kirkpatrick died. It seems like every training, HRD, and HPI manager knows the Kirkpatrick Model even if they don’t know the name of the model or who invented the four levels. However, this criticism doesn’t diminish my admiration for Kirkpatrick. He wrote : Ultimately though, when people think about Kirkpatrick, I don’t want them to think about me; I want them to think about the model and the mission to ensure that training contributes to organizational results.
