About The Event

With a total money spend of $145 billion on L&D in the US, 50% of this has no impact. Today more than ever before, creating scalable and sustainable measurement strategies measuring the quality of L&D is highly essential in organisations.  

The Learning Analytics Workshop from the Metrics That Matter team at Explorance focuses on key measurement issues for learning and development units within for-profit, not-for-profit and government organisations. The programme will address the fundamental reasons for measuring the quality of training (to demonstrate effectiveness and provide information for continuous improvement). It will also provide insights about how to create a scalable and sustainable measurement strategy that provides timely and valuable information to stakeholders about the quality of training programmes. 

Participants will spend time developing their own strategy and share best practices for tackling difficult problems like gaining support for measurement, building measurement skills within L&D, gathering and analysing data across an entire curriculum, reporting results to a variety of stakeholders, establishing governance councils, and taking action.   

Attendees will also learn some cutting edge techniques for demonstrating and communicating value by aligning to business needs and using the Portfolio Evaluation Approach. The course will also cover leading practices for measuring informal learning and demonstrating its value to the organisation.
