Business Impact of Learning and Development

The Learning GaugePune (IN), November 2020 - Upside Learning, a leading provider of end-to-end learning solutions, has launched a new guide to help L&D professionals get ahead with the learning measurement agenda. The eBook is entitled "The Learning Gauge".

Unfortunately, most learning initiatives’ focus dims when it comes to measuring the learning impact and its transition into the business. This questions the organizations' investment in learning and development and its core objective. An HBR article has even called it 'The Great Training Robbery'.

With the growing competition amidst dynamic markets, unstable economies, and constantly evolving technologies, continuous learning is truly the foundation to grow businesses sustainably. Leaders are realizing this and looking for their L&D teams to deliver on the promise. This has brought the focus on the need for learning measurement as never before. However, research suggests that most L&D folks struggle to measure learning outcomes and business impact effectively.

The Learning Gauge offers you a lens to the key challenges of learning measurement and the resolutions. It discusses some of the famous learning theories and the learning evaluation models followed by the industry, their limitations and challenges, and relevant case studies and examples. This guide will enable you plan towards finding a learning measurement strategy at your organizations.

Amit Garg, Founder and CEO of Upside Learning says, "At Upside Learning, our focus is on ensuring every training intervention makes a business impact. This guide is to support that continuous endeavour for our clients, partners, and the L&D community at large. I'm hopeful our community will find it useful."
