Track 3 - Tactical matters

It’s almost impossible to ignore the rising importance of analytics in L&D. Data is becoming the new currency across modern businesses today and learning is now realising the opportunity that it can provide to personalise experiences and demonstrate value. But recognising this opportunity and having the skills to know what to do with it don’t always go hand in hand. This session shares invaluable insights on how to harness data that you will already have at your fingertips.

Unlocking the potential of analytics in learning

But by digging up data and harnessing the growing power of analytics, Network Rail is articulating the value of its L&D efforts beyond simple Return On Investment (ROI) stats. Hear how its team has created an approach that uses its learning data, paired with broader business data to show how and where learning is making a difference to behaviour change and core business metrics that puts performance and the passenger first. It also helps improve safety and save millions of pounds. Attendees of this session will discover:

  • Where to start looking for the data you need
  • The skills required in L&D to master learning analytics
  • How to simplify complex data in terms the business will value
  • Where to find opportunities to prove and pilot learning analytics
