Evidence And Measurement Are Important For Any Learning Program.
Today’s Learning and Development operations, after all, typically aren’t hard-wired to substantiate how (or, worse yet, if) they’re contributing to an organization’s success. In short, they can demonstrate activity, but not results. That lack of evidence positions training teams at a disadvantage, making them an all-too-easy target when budget axes begin to swing (and they eventually do, always). Unable to defend themselves using the same ROI terms as their peers across the organization, Learning and Development teams are left vulnerable to the rigor of objective measures that subjective reasoning—no matter how powerful or persuasive—simply can’t match.
