Training ROI: Showing the Value of Training
Facilitated by Marcus Barlean, Lincoln Financial Group
Bringing value to an organization is key to any training program. However, showing this value is often seen as difficult or even impossible. Utilizing the Kirkpatrick Model of Evaluation, a seven step process for showing the value of training will be shared. This includes focusing on the organizational goals, identifying leading indicators, defining critical behaviors, determining required drivers, designing the learning, monitoring and adjusting, and finally, reporting results. All of which will culminate in ways to show the value of training.
Members will be able to identify the steps needed in order to show the value of a training program.
