In this episode of L&D Go Beyond podcast, Amit Garg Founder & CEO of Upside Learning Solutions speaks with Kevin M. Yates, The L&D Detective on challenges and opportunities for measuring the impact of training and learning on human performance and business goals.
Kevin has been in the training, learning, and talent development space for over 20 years working across multiple industries in a myriad of local and global roles, the most recent being learning analytics and impact measurement. Having felt saturated a few years ago, Kevin said that he was on the verge of leaving the training, learning, and talent development. At the same time, he discovered his interest in learning analytics, to which he was introduced to by Jack and Patti Phillips of ROI Institute. It has a methodology for measuring return on investment for training, learning, and talent development. It prompted him to stay on. Over time, people started comparing him with Sherlock Holmes due to his investigations into data & facts and trying to solve measurement mysteries. And that’s how he got the hat of the L&D detective.
Kevin also raised an important point and that is training and learning must be used not only for measurably changing behaviors, actions, and performance but also for sustaining them.
