Measuring Training ROI

In today’s competitive environment, there’s no question that we need to evaluate and prove the value of our learning and development initiatives.

While it is ordinary for organisations to invest in learning and developing short courses, it is far less likely for organisations to have meaningful insights into how they can measure the effectiveness and value of these courses in areas such as increased employee performance, customer satisfaction, product quality, corporate profitability, or various indicators of mission success.

Organisations of all types value their investments. What’s new is the method that organisations can use to get there. Although showing the ROI may be the ultimate report of value, organisation leaders recognise that value lies in the eye of the beholder; therefore, the method used to show value must also show ROI as perceived by all stakeholders. Just as important, organisations need a methodology that provides data to help improve investment decisions.

At Performance Development Group (PDG), we use a holistic approach that does both; We design critical learning training courses that are aligned to strategic business goals, evaluate the value that the organisations get from investing in learning and development courses, and develop data to improve those courses
