A six-stage evaluation model for human resources development (HRD) programs is presented which can be incorporated into program planning, development, and operation. In stage one, training needs and problems are identified which would benefit from a training program. In stage two, an HRD program is designed or located. In stage three, the program is implemented. In stage four, the participants complete the program after learning the particular skills and attitudes. In stage five, the participants remember and make use of their learning from the program. In stage six, the organization benefits as participants retain and use their knowledge. The quality of the decision-making at each of the six stages can determine the ultimate value of the program to an organization. Benefits of the six-stage process include forcing the articulation of the logic behind an HRD program, emphasizing the developmental stages of HRD programs, and providing education for HRD customers about HRD trade and practice.
