Measuring Learning's Impact on the Business
Speaker: Jeffrey Berk, COO of KnowledgeAdvisors
Date: Wednesday, February 16, 2011
Time: 10:00AM Pacific / 1:00PM Eastern (60 Minute Session)
This session will highlight six approaches that practitioners can use to measure learning's impact on the business. The approaches range from the use of ‘smart sheet' evaluations to glean reasonable indicators of learning's link to business results to a highly statistical causal model that creates an optimization roadmap of the correct inputs that drive results oriented outputs. In between we will explore the use of benchmarking, conditional questions, consultative templates and correlation analysis to reasonably yet credibly show how learning influences a business or behavioral outcome. In addition we will underscore the session with the use of concepts like Six Sigma applied to L&D to optimize performance and minimize defects.
