LRV203 Reporting Revolution
12:15 PM - 1:00 PM Thursday, October 26
Expo Hall: Learning Revolution Stage
Are big data and analytics really the answer to all your learning and development challenges? No, they’re just a distraction from the real issue. You need to get information and data in the hands of those who make decisions daily. What would our learning and development world look like if we revolutionized reporting and made talent data available to learners, managers, and administrators and simplified their decision-making process? It’s called information visualization.
In this session, join James Webb and Chris Bond to explore the real possibilities of visualizing information that impacts business today.
In this session, you will learn:
- What data learners and managers are really looking for
- How to adjust from reporting to visualization
- What the future of visualization/reporting looks like
- How you can make the change today
