An introduction to EvaluationZone


EvaluationZone reveals a huge demand for advice and guidance

EvaluationZone had 17,500 hits in its first week after launching on 7th January 2002. This is by far the biggest response to any new area on TrainingZone since it started 3 years ago. It proves what we all know, that evaluation and ROI are still on the top of every trainer’s agenda.

Whether you need a quick answer to a specific question or want a gradual, personal development programme in this subject then EvaluationZone has something to offer you.

The inaugural workshop on 10th January attracted more participants than any other TrainingZone workshop looked at some of the many issues surrounding ROI (return on investment) and received a very warm response –
