53 // Overcoming Challenges in Measuring Learning Impact with Kevin M. Yates
Show Notes

Kevin’s career in the learning and development profession includes over 20 years of experience in just about every learning professional role you can imagine. Known in the global L&D community as “the L&D detective,” Kevin answers the question, “What is the impact of learning?” He solves measurement mysteries and investigates how learning activates performance and business goals using facts, clues, evidence, and data.

Today we talk about Kevin’s journey across his various roles, and what he has learned about why measuring the impact of learning can be so difficult. In our conversation we touch on:
👉 What Kevin means by measuring the influence of learning and performance behavior
👉 Impact interviews and alignment with stakeholders on performance expectations
👉 The mindset required to help activate learning that makes a measurable difference
👉 And one of the most common traps teams set for themselves related to measuring impact

In our conversation, we touch on Kevin's L&D detective kit which you can find on his website along with articles and videos on the topic of measuring impact for training and learning.
