These slides come from Ellen Wagner's presentation at ASTD TechKnowledge 2013, San Jose, CA January 30, 2013.
Analytics have ramped up everyone’s expectations of what may be possible for improving accountability, transparency, and quality in all facets of our lives, from the marketplace to the workplace and at every point in education and training value chain, including learning and development. Analytics also are sparking serious conversations about the degree to which we truly understand which variables are truly predictive of desired action states, for whom and under what conditions they predict, and the confidence with which the predictions are made.
This session will provide participants with a faced-paced overview of the analytics landscape, including an orientation to enterprise data sources, a review of analytical techniques and methods and will then demonstrate the use of a 6-phased model for applying analytics in the workplace.
Learning and development organizations simply cannot live outside today’s enterprise focus on the measurable, tangible results now driving IT, operations, finance, and other mission-critical applications. This session will help ensure that learning and development organizations have a better emerging opportunities for putting their data to work in productive ways that will lead to demonstrable impact and alignment with business goals and enterprise strategic directions.
