Description

Does your enterprise learning organization spend large amounts of money on training with little apparent effect on business results?

That’s not unusual. Training dollars are often spent on knowledge transfer rather than performance support, when the latter has a stronger correlation with improved organizational effectiveness. Training dollars are often spent on infrastructure that is poorly architected and content that is poorly designed, so asset utilization rates are generally low. Training dollars are often not linked to core business results in any serious manner with true accountability and consequences in place to back up an organizational commitment to learning. These dysfunctions are commonplace, yet there are exceptions, and we can learn from them. I’ll share with you some ways to combat low training ROI, leveraging a recent case study.

A global financial services firm with a national network of brokerage offices housing more than 10,000 Financial Advisors found that it was spending too much on Associate on-boarding while yielding a poor return on investment. The on-boarding program was costly yet ineffective, because it relied completely on classroom training, was poorly designed and developed, lacked management support, and took too long to complete. In this webinar, we’ll discuss how the curriculum was re-designed to make better use of technology and to drive performance outcomes more quickly and cost-effectively. Specifically, we’ll discuss how the team leveraged High Impact Learning principles to prioritize learning needs and concentrate training resources on the places where they would have the greatest impact on organizational performance.

By picking their battles wisely, making practical use of technology, and investing in high-impact training where it could do the most good as well as high-efficiency training where it couldn’t, they maximized ROI for their organization. And you can too!
