As a training professional, you fill learning gaps. You know training needs to be effective in the classroom, transferred to the job, and impactful to the organization. But how do you know when you’ve succeeded? You know smile sheets and attendance data aren’t enough, so how do you prove the real value of your training programs? Ultimately, it comes down to measurement...measuring the impact of your training program on your organization. For too long, the training industry struggled to show organizational impact. We’ve been convinced that training ROI can’t be captured. No more.
This event will provide an overview of how to determine organizational impact for every training program you design. Following the ROI by Design™ method presented in this event, you will learn:
· How to develop measurable training programs and quantifying their effectiveness
· The way to incorporate business goals in your design to align with stakeholders
· How to show the before, during, and after progress from all learning programs
· The way to translate the language of training into the language of business
· The ways companies today are proving the value of their training team
And FINALLY, how a real ROI for your training program is created.
Join us to take the mystery out of measurement and add understanding of the measurement to your professional practice.

One of the biggest challenges for learning professionals is showing how their learning programs contribute to business success. The Learning Evaluation Certification provides learning professionals with the knowledge and ability to make clear connections between their training design, behavior outcomes, and business results.
Quantifying learning outputs and measuring how learning leads to business outcomes is effectively being used in organizations today. This certification provides the latest methods being used by companies in a variety of industries such as healthcare, pharmaceutical, financial, manufacturing, and hospitality.
Identifying how learning programs transfer into changes in business performance and organizational metrics is a new skill requirement for trainers. The Learning Evaluation Certification is a one-day program that prepares learning professionals to design programs that can be measured, measure programs so they can be evaluated, and evaluate programs to show business outcomes.
It provides clarity on how to define the behavior results from training, measure the behavior, and connect behavior changes to the associated metric. This certification prepares you to identify points of failure, understand accountability for failure, and define the means to repair failure as learning progresses from the classroom, to the job, and ultimately to organizational results.
The Learning Evaluation Certification is a component of the ROI by Design program and provides you with an easy-to-follow chain of evidence linking training programs to business outcomes.
1. To learn how standardized learning design enables the ability to measure learning outcomes and show how programs impact the learner, the job, and the organization.
2. To realize when to measure learning, what to measure and how to interpret results from learning measurement.
3. To understand how a measurement methodology highlights accountability for learning success across the organization and creates learning organizations.
