Learning & Development in Organisations: Strategy, Evidence and PracticeLearning & Development in Organisations: Strategy, Evidence and Practice

EVALUATING LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT IN ORGANISATIONS begins with an explanation of different evaluation concepts and how they differ from related concepts and processes. 


The authors then discuss the case for the evaluation of learning and describe different models of evaluation, including the Kirkpatrick, COMA and Integrated models. 


Then they consider the complex issues that are required to measure and evaluate job behaviour and organisational results, as well as the types of data collection designs that can be used.
