This workshop will help you gain a solid understanding of the use of evaluation as a strategic tool to improve the effectiveness and business impact of learning and performance improvement solutions. You will learn to follow a proprietary methodology used exclusively by Productivity Dynamics over the past two decades when partnering with major corporations such as Verizon, IBM, Cisco Systems, HP, and Chevron to measure the effectiveness, learning transfer, and business impact of learning solutions. The workshop will be facilitated by a seasoned practitioner who has served as a consultant to major corporations and public sector organizations.
Upon completion of this workshop, you should be able to:
- Articulate the strategic value and imperative of evaluation in assessing and demonstrating the business value of learning and performance improvement interventions
- Define and implement solid evaluation plans to assess:
- Readiness of learning and performance improvement solutions
- Perceived value of those solutions by the audience
- Learning effectiveness of the solutions
- Learning transfer and barriers and enablers to the application of what was learned
- Business impact of investment in learning and performance improvement
Approximately three weeks after the workshop, you will have a chance to meet and consult with the workshop facilitator and other participants in a two-hour Webinar. You and other participants will be able to ask questions, share successes and barriers to applying what you learned in the workshop, and get valuable hands-on advice for your work.
During the workshop, through hands-on collaborative learning activities, you will explore real-world cases and learn:
- To use proprietary evaluation framework and methodology developed by Productivity Dynamics for defining and implementing evaluation plans to measure the effectiveness and business impact of learning and human performance improvement solutions
- Use proven, effective tools and templates that were employed to implement the framework and methodology in major corporations, including Verizon, IBM, Cisco Systems, HP, and Chevron
- To recognize challenges and best practices in using the methodology
