Every organization has learning challenges. What distinguishes the learning organization from a traditional organization is the use of strategic learning/training and performance assessment to overcome these challenges. For the Final Paper, you will place yourself in the role of a workplace educator who is proposing a program evaluation logic model to the leadership team of your organization that will accomplish a task or fix a problem.
Your Program Evaluation Proposal will be prepared using Microsoft Word and formatted according to APA style, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. It will include the sections outlined below:
