Dr John O’Connor PhD

John O’Connor provides expertise in programme evaluation, to measure the on-going impact of our bespoke programmes on the organisation. Most learning departments measure how well people like their programmes but few attempt to measure the impact on the organisation.  John believes that evaluation is the singular issue that most clearly illustrates Learning & Development’s  separation from the business mainstream,  and he is committed to helping clients find the evidence that their investments deliver tangible results.  His Results Assessment approach measures outcomes in 3 domains: Perceptions, Learning and Performance.  It is a pragmatic, uncomplicated and time-efficient evaluation model.

John has a PhD in instructional design and has worked with many public and private sector clients to design, deliver and measure high-impact learning & change initiatives.  He also works directly with an organisation’s internal training department to ensure that the design of every development programme aligns with clear business goals and an evaluation framework is in place to measure the results. John’s goal is to enable clients to maximise their investment in people and organisational development.

John has a variety of interests including coaching and supporting Basingstoke and Mid Hants Athletics Club. He is a keen video editor and keeps fit by cycling, running and walking his dog.
