Scrap Learning, the gap between training that is delivered and what is actually applied back on the job, is a critical issue for organizations – and for you! It not only wastes scarce organizational resources, it threatens your professional credibility.

In this in-depth, highly interactive workshop you will:

  • Discover the impact scrap learning has on wasted organization resources and lost credibility with business executive stakeholders.
  • Examine the 3-phase, 9-step Predictive Learning Analytics™ methodology and the 6 benefits of using Predictive Learning Analytics (PLA).
  • Analyze how PLA can be used to identify participants who are most likely, at risk, and least likely to apply what they learned in a training program back on the job.
  • Examine how PLA can be used to identify managers who do a good and poor job of supporting learning
  • Analyze how to calculate the amount of scrap learning associated with a training program and how to identify and prioritize the obstacles preventing learners from applying what they learned
  • Discover how to validate the accuracy of your PLA algorithm using Level 2 and Level 3 evaluation data.
  • Examine various data charts you can use to report your PLA results and gain increased credibility with business executive stakeholders.
