Evaluation is closely entwined with implementation. But before you can deliver the training program, you need a plan to deliver the training and evaluate its effect on the learners.
Training should be a part of an integrated system in which performance is measured against criteria (best-practices benchmarks) that are tied to the overall organizational strategic objectives and the learning objectives.
A training program is organized around three phases of learning. Each phase provides an opportunity for you to evaluate effectiveness and learner outcome.
