Demonstrating the impact of learning

Demonstrating the business impact of learning is the Holy Grail for many L&D practitioners. Yet it is also elusive, with organisational decision makers continuing to pigeonhole training as a catchall for a variety of performance problems and evaluation commonly deprioritised due to time, resource or cost pressures. These factors combine such that evaluation is either problematic from the onset, treated as an afterthought, or not pursued at all. While demonstrating impact can be difficult, it is nevertheless critical if L&D practitioners are to earn and keep their ‘seat at the table’. Drawing on a broad range of case studies, this presentation will highlight how answering three essential questions will enable you to develop a learning evaluation strategy capable of showcasing real impact.
