Becoming a Business-First, Big-Data L&D Leader

ATD 2014: Session TU104
Jenny Dearborn | May 06, 2014 | Video

When it's done right, learning drives business results. The latest research shows that companies with strong learning cultures are 42 percent more likely to be innovative, have 37 percent greater employee productivity, are 35 percent more responsive to customers' needs, and 17 percent more likely to be market share leaders.  Yet many talented learning leaders are still taking direction from stakeholders instead of serving as true strategic advisers to senior management. Find out why and, more importantly, what you can do about it. Learn about global best practices and success stories of top CLOs and business-first strategies you can adopt. And, discover how you, too, can leverage 'big data' and analytics to prove your impact and earn your seat at the strategic table. Join the speaker for statistics, insights, and more on one of the most important topics in the L&D field today.  At this session, you will discover and discuss: the evolving role of the modern CLO, typical barriers to business partnership, and how to overcome them, why and how to employ measurable results using data and analytics, and looking beyond learning to make an impact.

ROI 2.0: New Applications, New Cultures, New Tools

ATD 2014: Session SU111
Jack J. Phillips | May 04, 2014 | Video

While ROI measurement has become an important tool in the last decade to show the value of specific programs for HR and learning and development (more than 3,000 people have become Certified ROI Professionals), universal acceptance of this process remains elusive. Whereas the basic formula for ROI remains the same, the ways in which the data are collected and processed to develop the monetary values and ROI have been updated, enhanced, and improved. It is now consistent, conservative—and yes, routine for some. This interactive session traces what has happened to ROI use in this field, barriers to success, and what is being done now to make it work—and why it even matters. The latest research on the use of ROI will be presented. This session also explores the challenges facing HR and learning executives to make this a viable, routine process in the future. ROI is needed for large-scale initiatives, expensive programs, and various strategic initiatives, otherwise, support, influence, and funding may be lost. Leaders must step up to this level of accountability.
