Learning for Impact – Achieving a Measurement Mindset Shift

Talent development functions are increasingly expected to achieve a demonstrable impact on business performance, requiring them to better measure individual L&D solutions and define their value at a macro-level.

Evaluate learning programs and measure informal learning, with the goal of yielding more telling and actionable information on learning gained, content applicability, and increased engagement and performance

  • Demonstrate the effectiveness, efficiency, and business alignment of the talent development function to enable more
  • value and impact-focused reporting with stakeholders
  • Empower L&D professionals to be performance consultants, and position measurement within the L&D lifecycle to better shape development strategies and learning solution design
