Impact Evaluation: From Employee Training to Leadership Development

Saturday, April 25, 12:30PM-1:20PM
Cancelled due to COVID-19 Policies

Organizations continue to spend more and more on learning and development (L&D), as a way to build their workforce for business success. However, there has not been much evidence that all the spending on L&D is producing more capable talent. Most evaluation efforts are not effective in demonstrating the impact of L&D practices. To help L&D professionals effectively evaluate the impact of their efforts, this session draws on the combined expertise of a diverse panel of experts in different L&D areas, ranging from employee training, high potential programs, to leadership development programs. Panelists will share insights on current practices and future opportunities in impact evaluation and ways to build value using evaluation data.

Want More Value from Evaluation? AIM to Answer Two Questions

TK2020 Event: Thurs, February 6, 9:00AM – 10:00AM
While almost all learning is evaluated, less than half of organizations report that evaluation helps meet their learning and business goals. Data create no value. People acting on meaningful data within the L&D process create value. The Alignment and Impact Model (AIM) focuses evaluation on helping all stakeholders create value. AIM incorporates purpose, process, stakeholder roles, and two questions to guide evaluation design and focuses on maximizing learning, transfer, and impact. Examples demonstrate the fundamentals of AIM and how it can be implemented and used.

Improving Instructor Impact on Learning with Analytics

Each of us can recall an instructor who made learning engaging, relevant and impactful, inspiring us to apply what we learned. Unfortunately, each of us can also recall an instructor who failed in one or more these areas. Instructors are force multipliers, reaching hundreds — if not thousands— of learners, impacting both their learning experience and motivation to transfer. So, how can we improve instructor impact on learning?

Two Fundamental Questions L&D Stakeholders Should Answer to Improve Learning

During recent conference presentations and webinars focused on analytics, big data and evaluation, we noticed audience members asking, “What questions should I be asking [and answering with evaluation data and analytics]?” Speakers typically answer these questions one of two ways: either by recommending collecting specific types or “levels” of data, as if all relevant questions for all learning and development stakeholders should be immediately identified and addressed; or by recommending collecting and tagging as much data as possible so the data analysts figure it out, as if the important questions will only emerge from analyzing all the data after the fact.

Qualitatively Different Measurement for Training Reactions

Training evaluation should provide insights not only about the effectiveness of training but also about how it can be improved for learners and organizations. In this context, the term “insights” implies a deep understanding of learning, the training process and its outcomes as well as evaluation procedures – designing, measuring, collecting, integrating and analyzing data from both a formative and summative perspective.
