The Emerging Trends in Measurement & Evaluation


Using Big Data to Measure the Impact of Strategic, Visible, and Costly Talent Programs

Did you know that according to a recent ROI Institute study, 92 out of 96 Fortune 500 CEOs said that they are most interested in learning the business impact of their strategic learning and development initiatives, but only 8% see that happening at their companies now?

This session will begin with Danny defining Big Data and its role in Talent Development. He will share why measuring critical programs like leadership development, sales training and onboarding are vital to program managers.


Then Danny will go through the major elements of a measurement plan to successfully and comprehensively generate quantitative and qualitative metrics in a timely and practical manner with limited resources. Examples of tools such as a key performance indicator matrix, a communication plan, sample smart sheet evaluations and sample reports, including dashboards, will be shared. Finally, plan to bring examples of your own measurement programs, instruments, and reports as Danny will talk through best practices and provide his insights.

This session will:

  • Define big data for talent development.
  • Review the importance of measuring strategic, visible and costly programs.
  • Discuss the measurement plan to gather timely, credible data.
  • Showcase sample reports, statements, dashboards and scorecards.
  • Provide insights into your own measurement plans.
