Wednesday, February 10 | 10:00 – 10:45 a.m. E.T.

Just thinking about measuring business impact often creates a heightened sense of anxiety among learning and development (L&D) professionals. Why? A recent survey found that 96% of learning leaders want to measure impact, but only 10% are doing it. Lack of confidence in knowing what and how to measure was identified as one of the main barriers to learning measurement.

This session is designed to boost your confidence and introduce an actionable and replicable process for aligning learning goals with business goals. Through examples and practice, participants will be introduced to a process that visually depicts the chain of evidence between training and business goals.

This interactive session will provide easy-to-understand insights on:

  • Identifying why and how alignment should be part of a measurement strategy.
  • How leaders can define “what to measure” to show impact.
  • Steps to implement a measurement map® as the foundation of a measurement plan.
