Companies do a lot of training, but how do you know if it's working?
According to the Association for Talent Development (ATD), the average company spends $1,229 per employee on training each year. It's important to know if that investment is paying off.
Even experienced trainers are often vexed by these questions:
- Did employees develop new skills in training?
- Are employees using those skills on the job?
- Is the company getting better results because of the training?
My new training video on lynda.com will help you answer these questions. The course, called How to Measure Learning Effectiveness, is based on the industry-standard competency model developed by the ATD.
The course covers:
- Common training evaluation models like Kirkpatrick's Four Levels
- Alternative approaches to traditional evaluation techniques
- Step-by-step instructions for evaluating training
You can watch a short preview video here. This module explains the importance of evaluating training programs and describes what can happen when you don't.
You'll need a lynda.com subscription to view the entire course, but you can drop my name and get a 10-day trial.
How to Measure Learning Effectiveness joins several other training-focused courses I have on lynda.com:
