Welcome to the Official Make Training Stick!® Website
Barbara Carnes, Ph.D.

For the past 25+ years Dr. Barbara Carnes has provided evidence-based tips and guidance to workplace learning professionals through my books, presentations, Sticky Note newsletters, and consulting. Training transfer is still as relevant today as it was when the first book was published. Dr. Tammy Means joined the team in March 2018 and is leading new content – Sticky Notes, presentations, books, consulting.

Barbara and Tammy work closely to continue the mission: to help trainers/workplace learning professionals make their training stick through Sticky Notes, Training Transfer Technologies white paper, presentations, and other tools.

The purpose of this website and the other Making Training Stick® tools is to support those of you who are interested in increasing the transfer of training in your organization. Sign up for Sticky Notes, our free monthly e-newsletter providing tips and ideas to increase the transfer of your training. Take a look at the free icebreakers, closers, and other materials for trainers. Purchase my books on Amazon, and visit this site often to find out about upcoming workshops, presentations, and other resources.

And let us hear from you with ideas, suggestions, and requests!
