Now more than ever, business and government leaders are demanding to see the return on investment produced by training and development. If learning professionals can't prove the value of their initiatives, management buy-in becomes questionable and budgets may be in jeopardy.
Knowing how to calculate and report these results can seem like a daunting task, especially when it comes to evaluating the effectiveness of training programs. This session, conducted by a Certified Return on Investment Professional (CRP), takes the fear and guesswork out of ROI. The session objectives are to:
* Identifying the drivers of ROI
* Making the business case for ROI
* Understand the ROI Methodology
* Define the guiding principles of ROI
* Calculating ROI in profit, non-profit and governmental organizations
Our February meeting will be led by Dave Rudd, the Director of Training & Development for the Department of Justices’ Office of the Inspector General (OIG). Dave is a Certified ROI Professional (CRP) earned through the ROI Institute.
Attendees should bring their own challenges in conducting training evaluation to the meeting.
Please note: Programs begin at 6:00 with informal networking and refreshments until around 6:20 when the evening's formal program begins. Programs end at 8:00.
