Escape the Reporting Black Hole

How to Improve The Use of Your L&D Data and Your Business Impact

Thursday, February 16, 2017
1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Dex Media Hotel & Conference Center
Dallas, TX

This event is part of CTR Week, which is to be held at the Dex Media Hotel & Conference Center, Dallas, TX, February 13-17, 2017.

As L&D leaders and practitioners, most of us are fortunate to have a vast amount of data. We get data from our financial, learning management systems and evaluation systems. We generate hundreds of standards reports weekly and our users are generating more of their own. But for all the promises of big data, most of us are drowning in stats with limited time to consume—let alone act on all this information. Gaining insights is a desire but not a reality for most of us, most of the time.

Consequently, we only use a fraction of the data to make decisions, shift policy or improve processes. If this seems wasteful to you, it is. This workshop is intended to reduce that waste and enable you to focus y our reporting on what stakeholders need to understand and advance strategy.

Topics Covered

  • Current challenges with data use in organizations
  • Root causes of poor data use
  • Envisioning how we want our data to be used
  • Strategies for improving data use
  • Understanding stakeholder expectations and needs
  • Making reports stakeholder-relevant
  • Developing a data dissemination plan
  • Aligning report dissemination to a decision-making cadence
  • Visualizing data appropriately

Who Should Attend

  • L&D or HR practitioners who provide reports and data to internal stakeholders on their programs and initiatives
  • L&D or HR practitioners responsible for measurement, data analytics or reporting
  • Consultants who want to improve their clients’ reporting and management of human capital

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Diagnose data utilization levels
