Measuring the business impact of learning

Curious to understand the L&D market appetite to measure the business impact of learning?

While many organisations recognise the need for learning and talent analytics, they are starting to invest more strategically in analytics tools and processes. Today, with the availability of big data and powerful analytics technologies, it is becoming possible for L&D to show the business impact and drive better performance — and better business cases.

  • In this session we will cover:
  • Results of research across 350 US/European organisations
  • Why the time to act is now
  • Practical strategies to help drive analytics forward at a strategic level – and deliver real benefits
  • Case study examples
