** Please note we had a speaker change for our May Event. Jose Cabera was to present at our June event but will speak in May. Dr. Sue McClernon will now present in June.**
Was it worth it? Demonstrating the impact and value of training programs through evaluation.
Imagine you implemented a high cost, high visibility training program and your boss or client asks you, “What difference did it make and was it worth it”
Our leaders and clients expect evaluation data that goes beyond reaction and learning. They need to know what difference our programs made and if they were worth it.
This interactive session is based on the Phillips and Phillips’ return on investment evaluation model, and participants will learn how to answer these questions. We will discuss the rationale for higher-level evaluation, and participants will have the opportunity to practice skills such as identifying impact measures, isolating program impact, and calculating return on investment.
· Determine the organization's impact and ROI needs and objectives. Participants can apply this learning to set an appropriate ROI objective, determine ROI objective feasibility, and identify appropriate tangible and intangible impact measures.
· Identify and implement the most credible and feasible isolation method. Participants can apply this learning to credibly estimate the program's impact.
· Estimate the program’s benefit to cost ratio and return on investment. Participants can apply this learning to demonstrate the value of a program's impact and ROI to senior leaders.
