Achieve your Training ROI

Updated: Oct 11, 2022


The Corporate Training Industry accounts for billions of dollars in expenses every year, but does it create the Return on Investments (ROI) that organizations desire, or do training programs continue to represent a "ticking of the box" by organizations and their people?


Omagbitse Barrow shares his thoughts on this subject, and provides a powerful linkage between the ADKAR Model for managing change, and the search for tangible returns on training investments, in the Online Efiko's GUIDE TO SUSTAINING THE IMPACT OF TRAINING.


Enjoy the learning experience, and transform the impact of corporate training in your organization.

I agree, that’s why we must create the environment for the training to be effective.
