The article discusses the four factors for implementing the four levels of evaluating training programs in an organization, which are reaction, learning, behavior and results. First, analyze the resources. Second, involve the line managers, because if they have negative attitudes toward you or your programs, you would not be able to evaluate effectively. Third, develop an effective training program. Fourth, do not skip levels.
