VIRTUAL WEBINAR - Link in registration email
Many Learning and Development leaders are under increasing pressure to demonstrate and improve the business results of their programs, in order to justify the significant investment required to ensure their success. Often their efforts at measurement and evaluation fall short of their expectations, due to limited resources and competing demands on their time.
This web-based series aims to help Learning professionals “raise the bar” on measurement by sharing practical tools for measuring at all four Kirkpatrick levels - Reaction, Learning, Behavior and Results – and even Return on Investment (“Level 5”). In this first session, Jay Foley will address “Selling the Value of Measurement.”
By attending this session, you will be able to:
- Identify key stakeholders and expectations of learning programs
- Demonstrate the value of measurement
- Gain commitment to your measurement approach
- Build a plan to measure and communicate results to different audiences
