Guest Webinars

 

Communicating L&D’s Value So the C-Suite Listens

Speaker: Cristina Hall, MBA, Gartner Metrics That Matter
Date: TBA

Learn how to improve your credibility with executive stakeholders by aligning with the measures they care about the most. This webinar, built around Gartner’s Portfolio Evaluation model, will share a framework to help you clarify your mission, apply an asset-manager mindset, and demonstrate that your training organization uses the right measures to effectively and actively manage the function and maximize the return on training investments. It’s easier than ever for L&D organizations to get the insights they need to communicate value in terms the business understands.


Strategic Insights from Training Evaluations

Speaker: Christine Lawther, Ph.D.
10:00am to 11:00am CT
June 25, 2018

Is it really possible to gain strategic insights from training evaluations? Yes, but most evaluations provide information about satisfaction (with the course materials, the cookies, or the temperature of the room), not insights. More sophisticated evaluations provide insights about knowledge obtained during the course, or intent to apply and how the course can be improved to increase application. Truly strategic insights come when the evaluation process is linked directly to the business goals for the organization. Insights also require that key performance indicators actually gather data that is relevant. Join us for this webinar and we will share how to align measurement practices to business outcomes, how to gather meaningful metrics and how to scale the processes so you and your leaders can share insights with business leaders.

The webinar will focus on this new learning ecosystem with comparisons to past technology leaps that changed the way employees learn. Attendees will gain insights about new digital learners in this environment and how to prepare for to meet the learning needs of a new generation.

Measuring Informal Learning for Impact

Speaker: John R. Mattox, II, Ph.D., Gartner, Metrics That Matter
10:00am to 11:00am CT
November 12, 2018

The learning environment is shifting away for formal learning programs toward informal learning. The change is driven by a wide variety of new learning technologies and the vast number of digital natives in the corporate environment. Employees are empowered, networked, and impatient, wanting to learn as they are working. While the landscape is shifting, business leaders still want to know if their investments in learning (formal and informal) are helping the organization reach business goals. This webinar will focus on a simple measurement model that can be used to define the content of informal learning, focus on appropriate measurement tools and select the best time to gather data. This approach is intended to be comprehensive and scalable so it can be applied for one informal learning approach or many across the organization.
