Dave Basarab, Training & Evaluation Leader and Author, introduces his new Predictive Evaluation (PE) Model, the first and only training and evaluation approach that adds the element of prediction.  This model successfully predicts training’s results, value, intention, adoption and impact, allowing for smarter, more strategic training and evaluation investments. PE will be invaluable for companies that struggle to define training’s success, fight to justify training’s value to their organization or view training as an expense rather than an investment with predicted return.  PE Model’s practical step-by-step process begins where most other evaluations stop and is unique because it:

  • Is the first model to add the element of prediction to training evaluations.
  • Predicts the quantifiable impact of training to forecast training investments, results and ROI.
  • Requires active participation, so employees feel invested and engaged throughout the process.
  • Can be used with existing or new courses, and works well with classroom-based or on-the-job training, on-line learning, and workshops.
  • Is appropriate for all industries and departments and staff at all levels.
  • Provides recommendations for continuous improvement.
