CLO Magazine

Budgets have been cut or are under scrutiny. Here are 7 ways to minimize resources and still show the value of a major program at the impact and ROI levels.

Phillips is chairman and Patti P. Phillips is president and CEO of the ROI Institute. Think about the logical chain of value from any learning program: level 1, reaction; level 2, learning; level 3, application; level 4, impact; and level 5, ROI.
