Kirkpatrick Partners
When I developed the four levels in the 1950s, I had no idea that they would turn into my legacy. I simply needed a way to determine if the programs I had developed for managers and supervisors were successful in helping them perform better on the job. No models available at that time quite fit the bill, so I created something that I thought was useful, implemented it, and wrote my dissertation about it.

People are generally not making lifelong commitments to the field in their own minds. They're 'getting some skills' and making some connections before figuring out what they really want to do."
