The State of Measurement: Progress Continues
As some CLOs report:• “There is a large misconception at the executive level about the need to conduct reliable and qualitative training measurements.”
• “I think we could gather more data and make better use of technology.”
• “We need to do more but don’t have the funding or the will.”
• “We do measure, but it is inconsistent and doesn’t leverage all the data to drive better business decisions.”
• “We are not able to run good reports, nor do we get executive management support in training.”When organizations were very satisfied with the approach to measurement, they thought learning and development played a very important role in the achievement of organizational priorities. On the other hand, when the measurement programs were weak, 60 percent of CLOs reported their influence and role in helping achieve organizational priorities was also weak. Learning organizations that can demonstrate their impact on learning initiatives can expect to have greater influence when needed. Compared with prior years, the common forces working against satisfaction with measurement programs remained a combination of capability and support. Specifically, CLOs believe their ability to deploy effective measurement process is limited by lack of resources, level of funding, level of leadership support and availability of technology.
