     Measure, Communicate, and IMPROVE Your Learning Programs

    Facilitated by Jeffrey Berk

    Friday, June 15th, 2018

    Over the last 15 years L&D professionals have been told to focus on big data and learning analytics and that doing so earns a seat at the table.  What has transpired from this has been an effort to collect a lot of data and generate a lot of reports.  The unintended consequences of this are low response rates and little use of the data to improve performance.  This session will present a fresh approach to shift the mindset from measurement and reporting to performance improvement.  

    After attending this session, participants will:
    • Understand how Net Promoter System can be fused into the measurement process.
    • Learn how a simpler process can allow you to act on your data and see improvements.
    • Glean insight to shift the conversation from proving your value to improving business performance.
