If you think dealing with data is hard, try people. This session covers both – how you can get access to data and interpret it, and then difficult part: using that data to tell a compelling story to your business, even when that means being accountable for delivering bad news about performance and having to have a tough conversation about performance.


Using analytics in learning: the business benefits and the challenge of change

This session covers the full complexity of using analytics in learning – and it goes well beyond the data. Yes, we explore some of what is possible with data. Can you demonstrate that some training correlates with an increase in productivity? With access to the right data and good analysis, certainly you can. But that’s only the start of the journey.

Arguably the more difficult part starts next – how do you ensure impact from your data? How do you tell your story around it in a compelling form, and, most importantly, how do you ensure that your L&D team is ready to have difficult conversations with the business about what the data says. Managers and stakeholders may not want to hear the message that the data tells – and L&D people may not be able to put the message across. Worse, some will avoid the responsibility of moving from training conversations to performance-based discussions. Join us to learn how to overcome this and take your data from analysis to impact.

  • Examples of the power of learning analytics including its application to non-technical skills.
  • Ensuring that you have the right data, and the ability to interpret it
  • Telling your data story right: compelling, non-threatening, and with impact
  • Why vision is not enough – repeatedly making the case for your data
  • The challenge: the shift from training to data and performance
