The ATD Greater Boston Chapter Special Interest Group on Learning Measurement Presents:
Using Learning Measurement Data with Key Stakeholders
July 29, 2020
2:00 PM to 3:15 PM
VIRTUAL WEBINAR - Link in registration email
This webcast is part 4 of a 4-part series on “Raising the Bar on Measurement: Building Your Strategy and Plan.” The focus will be on using measurement data with stakeholders in a way that demonstrates and enhances value and builds credibility. Tom Atkinson, the SIG leader, will present a brief case study on measuring a leadership development curriculum. He will then lead a discussion with a panel of L&D professionals, which will share insights and ideas based on their experience in multiple industries. We will use the chat and polling functions to ground the discussion in topics of greatest concern to the participants.
By attending the July 29th session, you will learn and discuss:
- Key stakeholders of learning measurement - that is, who cares about results of learning?
- How can we engage with stakeholders? - such as, getting executives’ attention and handling difficult questions or objections
- What is the best way to plan for a stakeholder briefing? – we will provide a sample agenda
Introducing the Panel
About the Series: “Moving Ahead on Measurement: Building Your Strategy and Plan”
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. The June 24 webinar is part of a 4-part series aimed at helping 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”).
