Adoption Evaluation measures participant goal completion rate against the defined Adoption Rate created when you predicted training’s value. Data is collected on the success that participants have had in transferring their goals to the workplace, results are analyzed and compared to the Adoption Rate, and an Adoption Dashboard is produced to report findings. If needed, corrective actions are put in place to improve adoption.
Collecting Adoption Data
Adoption Evaluation is collected from participants after they’ve graduated from training and had the opportunity to implement their Intention goal. A short 3-minute survey is used here.
Evaluating Adoption Results
Determine how many participants have successful adoption by reviewing the records where participants have self-reported successful adoption (Completed or Significant Progress). Read each description of the work performed and see if it matches (or is similar to) any of the Adoptive Behaviors on the Impact Matrix. If, in your opinion, it does match, code that participant as Successful Adoption. If collected data cannot be matched to an Adoptive Behavior, code that participant as Unsuccessful Adoption. At times, participants are reporting on multiple goals. Judge each goal. Participants are classified as Successful Adoption if any one of their goals is successful. If no goals are successful, participants are classified as Unsuccessful Adoption.
Reporting the Results - The Adoption Dashboard
An Adoption Dashboard is a vehicle for showing evaluation data in a few pages. It provides insight into the success of training and whether it is reaching its predicted Adoption results.
