701 Getting Started with Learning Measurement
8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Friday, October 27
Data and Measurement
While marketing departments have become increasingly adept at measuring their contribution to financial performance, L&D departments have traditionally been slower at using measurement techniques to prove their worth. There are increasingly sophisticated ways to measure the business impact of learning, yet many L&D professionals are struggling to get started with measurement. What’s the value of measuring learning impact, and how do you rise to the challenge?
This session will break down the latest measurement trends in L&D, from traditional measurement techniques to big-data solutions and data analytics made possible through the wider adoption of xAPI. You’ll learn practical tips for how to implement a successful impact measurement initiative, whatever your approach. The session will conclude with a segment on how to build a compelling business case for change to gain management buy-in.
In this session, you will learn:
- About current trends in learning impact measurement
- About the role of data analytics in L&D
- About the difference between traditional measurement approaches and big data
- Practical tips for getting a successful result from your measurement and data analytics projects
- How to build a great business case for future L&D investment in measurement
