Learning Analytics: Getting to Application, Results, and Value

Program Description:

L&D organizations consistently struggle in providing the senior leaders in their business with the metrics they need to be seen as a strategic providers to the business.  Progressive learning organizations are leveraging measurement and analytics to be able to show their executive sponsors the application, results, and business value that their programs are delivering to the organization.    

The Metrics That Matter practice of CEB (Corporate Executive Board) specializes in helping learning organizations take a different approach toward learning analytics.  They will share the latest insights and research around learning measurement and provide an overview of how the best in class & award winning corporate learning groups are accomplishing this.

This session will:

  • Provide the latest research from CEB on L&D groups regarding learning analytics
  • Discuss the phenomenon of “Scrap Learning”.  How measuring Scrap Learning helps organizations in calibrating and improving their levels of the application, results, and value from learning
  • Draw the distinction between the average learning group and best in class in relation to analytics
  • Provide guidance for how learning groups can move from being seen as cost centers to valuable strategic partners
  • Show how analytics helps top learning groups make their business cases for new programs (and additional budget) and get the resources they need for success!
