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. Collect Pre-Program Data.

When we originally published our Learning Evaluation eBook and blog series, we covered four learning evaluation models representing a range of approaches and perspectives: Kirkpatrick, Kaufman, Brinkerhoff, and Anderson. While there are many other learning models we’ve yet to cover, the one we’re asked about most often that’s not mentioned in our original series is Phillips' Learning Evaluation Model. ROI, however, can be extremely useful when planning a learning program.
