The many ways to measure the business impact of learning are becoming increasingly sophisticated, yet many L&D professionals are struggling to even get started.

In this session, you will learn how to use a five-step model for measuring the impact of learning. You’ll start by investigating ways to gather your data and discover that you can get started more easily than you may have expected. You’ll then explore strategies for getting to know your data and make sense of it. Next, you’ll find out how to operationalize your data in ways that are efficient and will save you from spreadsheet doom. You’ll follow that by looking at the options you have for exploring your data—how to look at it holistically, ask questions, and investigate surprises.
