Deep Dive: L&D Measurement Mystery (In Person Event)

May 14 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


How do we measure training and learning’s contribution to human and business performance? Is there evidence for the impact of training? What are credible facts for learning effectiveness?

These are difficult questions to answer but difficult does not mean impossible. There is an answer! Join Kevin M. Yates, the L&D Detective, as he solves a measurement mystery.

Working alongside Kevin, you will conduct an impact measurement investigation. You’ll examine nine questions, the answers to which are essential for successfully measuring the impact for training and learning. You’ll also collect facts, clues, evidence, and data that reveal training and learning’s influence on human performance and business results.

We will identify metrics and measures that give signals for impact. We will also explore what you can and cannot measure. We’ll conclude our impact investigation with the evidence we’ve collected and answer the question, “What is the impact of training and learning?”.
