L&D Leaders Breakfast Forum

Considerable amount of money is spent on training and development every year — yet businesses are not seeing the value from these investments. Many seem to think that just because learning is happening, everything is under control; but it’s not. Ponder on the following questions:

  • How much is our organization spending on learning company-wide?
  • Are our learning programs making a tangible difference? If so, do we know what are we doing right?
  • What expectations do our top management have of our learning programs?
  • Are our learning programs adequately leveraging our people, processes and technologies?
  • Is our learning portfolio sufficiently impacting our business performance and profitability?
  • Are we maximizing the amount of time our people spend on activities which add value?
  • Are we as efficient and effective as we possibly could?
  • What are the quantifiable results and measurable outcomes of the work we do?

In the absence of clear, valid answers to these questions; the learning function cannot successfully help our company create business value and deliver positive business results.

Here’s the truth……. It’s not about the learning — it’s all about the results! Good learning activities that doesn’t deliver any business value is pretty much irrelevant. Senior management expect it, but they aren’t actually getting that business value, as evidenced by a 2009 research study from the ROI Institute:

96% of executives want to see the business impact of learning, yet only 8% receive it now; 74% of executives want to see ROI data, but only 4% have it now.
