Mon Nov 20 2023


On this episode of Ask a Trainer, Dr. Alaina Szlachta, Founder and Lead Learning Architect at By Design Development Solutions, joins us to discuss key insights from ATD Research's report on Measuring Impact in L&D. Alaina shares the strategic advantages of becoming a data-driven organization, offers recommendations to overcome challenges to measuring impact, and shares her top tip for improving data literacy. Questions asked in this episode: - Can you talk a little bit about the benefits of being a data-driven organization? What difference does this make for business outcomes? - What recommendations do you have to address challenges to measuring impact like isolating training's impact? - Data skills are one of the top 10 skills L&D pros need to get ahead. Can you explain what the difference is between data analysis, data literacy, and data privacy and can you maybe share your top tip or strategy to improve data literacy in and out of work? - You're the author of Measurement and Evaluation on a Shoestring, can you give us a sneak peek into what you hope readers will take away or gain from this book?
