New Tools for L&D Measurement

John R. Mattox II, Ph.D., principal consultant with Metrics that Matter, a Division of Explorance, recently spoke to a group of Atlanta-area learning leaders about how to measure learning programs for impact and the new technologies that are available to help with the measurement process.

“Training programs should have a measurable impact on learning, application, performance and business outcomes,” Mattox said. “There are many ways to measure these outcomes, but the two most effective ways are impact studies and comparison to standards.”

What the Dickens? L&D Ghosts

We're in the season to celebrate the holidays and welcome in the new year. It is also time to evaluate where our learning & development industry has been, where we currently are and what the future holds.
