We are a human capital analytics firm providing learning and talent measurement solutions.Our on-demand evaluation software, Metrics that Matter, was developed to automate the measurement approaches recommended by Kirkpatrick, Phillips, Brinkerhoff, and Bersin. It offers deep analytic capabilities to help organizations demonstrate the value of training and optimize their workforce.
Some of you might be wondering how can I leverage some of the strategies that Jeff talked about to improve project performance. At the end of the day, it is all about project performance. Allow me to show you how you can link a learning investment in PM to an impact on project performance: CLICKI am sure many of you will relate to this environment—it has the triple constraint and three additional areas that impact project performance. You can define the business results in many ways, For example, CLICK The desired business results can be defined into these three areas (decreasing costs, increasing quality and increasing productivity). Many others, but for our purposes today let’s focus on these three which are commonly associated with project performance. This chart represents the outcomes of post event and follow up surveys of the learners. Post event is immediately after the class and follow up is 60 days after the class. This data represents 650 learners, for a cross functional PM program over a period of 5 months. Let’s look at the first business result Post event, 24% of learners said that felt they will be able to decrease costs in the future. When we asked them to isolate what percentage of this predicted decrease in costs was only due to the training they just received, the average was 49%. 60 days later we asked them again. 21% of them said that they will be able to decrease costs. When we asked them to isolate what percentage of this decrease in costs was only due to the training they took 60 days ago, the average was 55%. This is a good story that is also supported by a lot of qualitative data with examples on enablers and challenges they faced applying the best practices they leaned in the training. Similarly, the results for the other two areas are shown in this table. A picture starts to emerge that tells you a couple of things:Are you on the right path? Is this making a difference?Is there a need for immediate adjustments or course correction (for example if 2% can apply, we have a problem)You can start to calculate a business impact using some of the approaches that Jeff talked about. This may not necessarily be the 100% proof, but is great evidence that shows better project performance. As Govt Contractors, I hope you all can see how important it is to implement a scalable and repeatable measurement program to help you assess the impact of PM learning to the outcomes of your projects. At ESI, we believe it is crucial and we have made the investment to make sure that all our programs have this approach built into them. Thank you all for your time today. I will turn it back to Janine.
