LTEN Qstream Webinar: The 3 C's of Successfully Linking Training to Business Results

493 views

Published on

For years, the Holy Grail of training has been the ability to go beyond information delivery and simple skills assessment to identify a direct, positive impact on business results. Sales managers in particular are frequent victims, frustrated by their inability to associate training investments to sales performance and new revenue acquisition.

The good news is that in the current era of Big Data, mobile and gamification, managers have powerful new options for monitoring and measuring learning transfer, making it possible for trainers and educators to document with increasing precision what sales teams really know, and then make that data available and actionable for managers.

Join LTEN and Qstream for this interactive webinar reviewing how to apply predictive analytics to training outcomes, helping teams connect the dots between sales metrics such as engagement, performance and content proficiency to actual business results.

Attendees of this webcast will discover the 3 C’s of successfully transforming real-time data from your training program into executive insights that managers love, including:

• Coaching,
• Confidence, and
• Correlation to sales performance.
