High Impact Evaluation
Gillis & Bailey’s High Impact Evaluation™ (HIE) is a predictive and easy to use learning evaluation approach developed to help organizations, not simply to measure results, but to ensure training drives results.
High Impact Evaluation includes powerful new strategies and tools expressly designed to help ensure learning promotes strategy and delivers results. These extensively field-tested tools include: Impact Mapping (alignment), Survey Templates, an electronic Quality Assurance app, Smart Diagnostics, ROI Forecasting, and executive-friendly Results-at-a-Glance dashboards.

- Apply the Learning Value Chain™ evaluation framework to measure, monitor, and improve learning, job performance, and business results.
- Use the Capability and Transfer Questionnaires—new end-of-course and transfer instruments to measure learning effectiveness and ‘predict’ potential impact on job performance and organizational results.
- Develop Capability and Transfer Reporting Indices—results-at-a-glance dashboards that quickly and vividly communicate results to all stakeholders.
- Use the Impact Mapping process—a powerful methodology to ensure training is aligned to critical organizational outcomes and business results.
- Use the new electronic Gillis Quality Assurance Tool will help you forecast outcomes and ‘red flag’ potential risks to impact at the earliest stages—even at conceptualization and design.
- Employ the ROI Evaluation Methodology including how to build credibility by isolating training’s impact from other factors.
|Traditional Training Evaluation||High Impact Evaluation (HIE)|
|Goal: To develop evidence of program’s impact||Goal 1: To maximize program’s impact Goal 2: To develop evidence of program’s impact|
|Rear-view mirror evaluation Data (evidence) analyzed after training to determine if intended outcomes were achieved.||Forward-looking & predictive Impact analysis begins early in the process—when problems can be anticipated, corrected, and money saved. Includes predictive indicators and forecasting tools.|
|Results are passively monitored Evaluator observes impact and reports on program’s success in meeting intended outcomes.||Impact is actively managed Evaluator observes impact throughout the process but actively manages risk to ensure training is effective and that intended outcomes will be achieved.|
|Tradition-based Most common, four levels—widely accepted, traditional wisdom in vogue for more than 50 years.||Evidence-based Evolved & field-tested in the 3-year Investing in People™ research project. Examination & verification of key factors that most influence learning, performance, and organizational results.|
|Evaluation at the end of ADDIE process Evaluation is typically and add-on to design and development…. hence akey activity that can be (and often is) dropped when time and resources are lacking.||Evaluation integrated with ADDIE process High Impact Evaluation infuses ADDIE with results-based thinking. Evaluation seamlessly integrated into smart program design and implementation.|
“I’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of projects with CFLI for the past 10 years and am consistently impressed by their expertise, quality deliverables, and overall professionalism. CFLI recently trained my entire team on their High Impact Evaluation model. Lights went off for everyone as they now had a straightforward methodology to connect the dots between learning efforts, organizational outcomes, and business impact.”
Your insight into our safety performance programs and measuring the impact of our client’s engagement with our processes was extremely useful in demonstrating the positive transformational changes experienced by the project core health teams and their programs we were involved with.
Your methodology also proved to be very useful in engaging senior leadership to engage with our programs resulting in the successful national growth of our business of improving sustainable improved safety performance in healthcare.
Proven evaluation is critical in creating the intentionality to change. Without being able to measure the impact of change interventions, expectations can fall short, achievement disappoints and engagement suffers. Your methodology avoids these pitfalls in change processes as goals are clarified, progress is tracked, capacity and capability are captured and leveraged and the impact measured.
Congratulations again on your innovative and leading approach to evaluation.
“emBOLDen Alliances, a global nonprofit based in the US, has integrated High Impact Evaluation as our gold standard to evaluate our trainings for over two years. This is the best methodology we have found that directly leads us to thoroughly comprehending and improving our work in prioritized, logical, and impactful ways.
There is no doubt that the Centre for Learning Impact tools and approach emBOLDens our mission!”
