Calculating ROI and cost of measurement • Example • Benefits per program (1st year) $120,00 • Costs per program (25 participants) $ 40,000 ROI $ 120,000 (Benefits) – 40,000 (Costs) ---------------------------------------------------- = 200% $ 40,000 (Costs)

What process do you follow toidentify and implement measuresthat are acceptable to seniormanagers and stakeholders?Do they value the metrics or is it areport that does not garner muchattention ?
Widely used Metrics for Training and Learning Days Invested in Overall Training - No. of overall training days per year/per staff (aggregate or segmented by function/level/location/gender) Days Invested in Competency-based Training No. of days in competency-based training per year/per staff member (agg. or by seg.) Participation rate in Training % of total staff in overall (or competency-based) training per year (agg. or by seg.) $ Investment Per Staff Learning & development spend per staff member (agg. or by seg.) Payback period in months = $ costs / monthly benefits Return on Investment (%) = $ benefits/ $ costs x 100 Discounted pay back period (adjusts benefits for inflation) Discount Cash Flow/ Net Present Value (adjusts benefits for inflation & riskiness)
Process Involved in Developing Metrics Understand key Devolve work force metrics (including L&D deliverables of measures) from business goals and the business operational measures 1. Business Goal to increase sales by 10% through cross selling & bundling of products 2. Operational requirement is sales skills training to develop sales force competency 3. Tactical L&D metric % of sales staff are up-skilled by month end 4. Calculate Payback in months - $ costs / monthly increase in $ gross profit 5. Calculate ROI (%) – % increase in $ gross profit/$ costs x 100 www.academyglobal.com

Do you use the balancedscore card approach or doyou tend to focus on the hardand quantifiable measures towin credibility ?

L&D Performance MeasurementOpportunities Challenges• Develop stronger business • Deciding upon the most critical cases to secure, maintain measures (“vital few versus trivial resource allocation to L&D many”)• To demonstrate L&D activity as • The financial literacy of L&D synchronised to operations and overall organisation goals • Proving links between the training intervention/s and the operating and• Better secure significant business outcomes investment in new HRM • “how confident am I that the initiatives through CAPEX increase in sales was due to training as opposed to advertising/promotional activity”
Which direction are weheading in trying to measurethe impact of learning on thebottom line and businessresults ?
Learning Café Point of View• Learning needs to be accountable not only If you don’t define to learners but also to the organisation. your own accountability• Impact of learning on bottom line can be someone else will. quantified. It is a myth that it cannot be done robustly or consistently.• Learning professionals need to improve Financial financial and business literacy. Capital Market Human Value Intellectual Capital Capital• Explore other models of measuring such Structural Capital as Intellectual Capital Approach and granulate your approach for different types of learning.
