607 7 Crucial Factors for Making Transfer Happen
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Wednesday, March 27
Talent development professionals want to get the best results from learning programs. Yet, most experts agree that only about 20 percent of learning is implemented in the workplace. And this percentage has held steady for decades. Would you accept, as a client, a 20 percent transfer rate for a service or product? In an era of growing accountability, it’s the mission of talent developers to increase the rate of transfer. Because in the end, it’s only on-the-job behavior that matters: The business only benefits when learning positively impacts performance. Ensuring learning transfer is therefore an important challenge facing talent developers today. But how can you make sure your learning programs have a high rate of transfer? What makes learning really work?
In this session, you will learn to make sure your learning programs have a high rate of transfer. You’ll examine seven factors that are crucial to making transfer happen. These seven factors were revealed in recent research that analyzed hundreds of training sessions of international companies. The study looked at how transfer took place six months later. During this session, you will be invited to use a web-based app called Transfer Quick Scan. The app checks the rate of transfer of a learning program of your choice. It shows you directly the effectiveness of the seven factors and advises you on how to redesign your learning program to have more impact. You can use these results Monday back at work!
In this session, you will learn:
- About the seven factors that make transfer happen, and how to apply them in every learning program in your organization
- How to use Transfer Quick Scan to evaluate the effectiveness of a learning program
- How to share and compare the outcome of the scan with other participants
