Praise from Training Professionals for Training on Trial:
“Training on Trial should be a required read for anyone in the business of buying, building, and delivering training.” — Judith Hale, Ph.D., CPT, Hale Associates
“This book is simply the most important read, now, for anyone engaged in the management and leadership of learning & development activity.” — Craig Hiles, Managing Partner, Whitestone, Inc., UK
“Training on Trial both forewarns us of the dangers of becoming complacent training providers and directs us to be proactive…A must-read for all training practitioners in the 21st century.” — David Cory M.A., President, The Emotional Intelligence Training Company, Inc.
“Perhaps, the next time you step into an elevator, you could be greeted by your senior executive with, ‘How’s it going with training?’ In Training on Trial, Jim and Wendy Kirkpatrick help the CLO and staff lay out their ‘opening remarks’ with confidence and foresight. From whatever sector—private, government, or nonprofit—the examples and clear thinking about the Kirkpatrick levels of training evaluation will serve as preparation for your response to the potential plaintiff’s complaint, ‘What has training done to help us?’” — Harold Welch, Ph.D., SPHR System Manager, Leadership and Knowledge Management, U.S. Office of Personnel Management
“Training on Trial contains tips, tools, quizzes, examples, and case studies that help you build a ‘chain of evidence.’ Written in an engaging and practical style, Jim and Wendy introduce a new vocabulary that I hope will become common in the L&D world. They have changed the way I think and talk about training with my ‘jury.’” — Glenn Hughes, Director of Global Learning, KLA Tencor, Inc.
“In Training on Trial, Jim and Wendy Kirkpatrick provide learning professionals a practical and realistic guide to remaining relevant to the bottom line…A must-read for anyone in the learning and development arena. — Kimberly Middleton, Supervisor, Learning and Development, Navy Federal Credit Union
“Yes, Training is on Trial, but the verdict is in favor of Jim and Wendy’s latest book.” — Elaine Biech, author of The Business of Consulting and Training for Dummies
