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

Business leaders often state that they are unable to share the value of L&D with the board of directors and stakeholders. Why? In some cases proper measurement practices are not mature enough to provide insights. For others L&D is unable to effectively communicate how training programs affect business goals. 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.

calendarTuesday, October 8th 2019, 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM Eastern Timezon
