Using Demographic Data to Gain Context and Insight

calendarTuesday, April 14th 2020, 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM Eastern Timezon

Demographics are often collected as an afterthought, but they are key to generating insights. For example, an on-boarding course that exceeds benchmarks for all respondents might fall short for experienced hires. Or an examination of the data by geographic regions might highlight that some countries are benefiting from training substantially more (or substantially less) than others. Brett Hatten shared his experience with demographic analysis and his recommendations for investigating demographics to highlight strengths and areas for improvement. Learn what MTM can do for you that you might not be able to do for yourselves.

Aligning Data Collection and Reporting to the Business Using the Portfolio Evaluation Approach

calendarTuesday, November 5th 2019, 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM Eastern Timezon

This webinar will focus on how L&D can solve this problem with three simple steps: 1. Collect meaningful KPIs across the curriculum with training evaluations, 2. Align programs to business-relevant portfolios, and 3. Report evaluation results according to those portfolios.
