The many ways to measure the business impact of learning are becoming increasingly sophisticated, yet many L&D professionals are struggling to even get started. Marketing departments are increasingly adept at measuring their contribution to financial performance, but why are we so much slower at proving our worth?L&D increasingly has to justify its existence, so how do we rise to the challenge?

In this session, you will learn how to use a five-step model for measuring the impact of learning. You’ll start by investigating ways to gather your data and discover that you can get started more easily than you may have expected. You’ll then explore strategies for getting to know your data and make sense of it. Next, you’ll find out how to operationalize your data in ways that are efficient and will save you from spreadsheet doom. You’ll follow that by looking at the options you have for exploring your data—how to look at it holistically, ask questions, and investigate surprises. Finally, you’ll discuss approaches for experimenting with your data and building on what you’ve learned.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Current trends in learning impact measurement
  • The role of data analytics in L&D
  • The difference between traditional measurement approaches and big data
  • How to build a great business case for future L&D investment in measurement
  • Practical tips for getting results from your measurement and data analytics projects
