Recognizes the difficulties of evaluating training and argues that what is required to make it more effective is the adoption of an integrated approach to evaluation and, most significantly, the creation of an appropriate organizational culture, which promotes and recognizes the value of evaluation in general and training evaluation in particular. Discusses reasons for the absence of, or ineffective practice of, evaluation within so many organizations and these are shown to be related to organizational cultures which discourage training evaluation, especially organizational‐level evaluation. Discusses the nature and meaning of organizational culture from a practical point of view before providing advice to those responsible for training about how they can attempt to change an organization′s culture towards one which supports and values the evaluation of training.
