ROI of Learning

ROI of Learning

Training professionals everywhere are feeling pressure to prove the value and impact which their training initiatives can bring to the organization. Without a proven return on investment (ROI), management buy-in and training budgets are in jeopardy.

If you are trying to figure out how to incorporate a measurement process within your organization, there's no better resource than acclaimed ROI experts, Patti & Jack Phillips.

As founders of the ROI Institute, the Phillips have partnered with us to bring you a focused training experience that broadens the knowledge of what we call the "ROI of Learning". These products offer insight and tools for making the connection between learning and development and your business' success. The Bottomline on ROI Workshop from HRDQ teaches training and development leaders how to connect programs, processes, and projects with results, and demonstrate these results to upper management in a clear, precise, and logical way.

ROI Methodology

The ROI Methodology is a scalable and systematic approach to program evaluation. Using a process model, five-level framework, and operating standards to capture performance metrics from simple satisfaction scores to financial impact, the methodology enables you to collect appropriate data to report performance of a variety of initiatives and program types. The ROI Methodology generates both qualitative and quantitative data and provides techniques to isolate the effects of the program from other influences–resulting in credible metrics and ROI reports accepted by financial executives and stakeholders.

With over 6,000 organizations using this process, the ROI Methodology is the most used and implemented evaluation system in the world. The ROI Methodology not only provides the capability to evaluate program performance, but also improves the design of programs for optimal impact. A focused, proven and practical approach–the process is grounded in conservative standards and a cost effective approach to evaluation.
