Create a Corporate Training Program that Sticks: Part 1 – Defining Your Problem

TechSmith Camtasia

How do we deliver the training? But the most important follow up to questions like this is to ask, “why?”. We’re often asked big questions that need to be broken down further.

Learning Data: The real definition and how you can prove business impact

Axonify

Behavior change takes time, and most training programs have set start and completion dates. It actually has nothing to do with business impact, which also takes more time to measure than is typically allowed. It doesn’t offer insight into how well your training team is doing.

What is Prescriptive Analytics and Why Should You Care?

Talented Learning

This begs several questions: How do descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics differ? This data indicates how a project, program or product performed previously.

How (and Why) You Should Promote Informal Learning with Trainees (and the Boss)

Mindflash

Do they learn more about their job from formal training (classroom, online, etc.) or do they learn more informally (from peers, managers, etc.)?

If trainees were learning from a co-worker instead of a trainer it meant that there was a training “gap&# or a need not being addressed in the classroom.
