    The Measurement Map: Getting Aligned to the Business
    with Bonnie Beresford, Ph.D. GP Strategies

    Just thinking about measuring business impact often creates a heightened sense of anxiety among L&D professionals. A recent survey found that 96% of learning leaders want to measure impact, but only 10% are doing it.

    This session is designed to boost your confidence and provide you with a tool and a repeatable process to get aligned with the business.  Through examples and practice, you will be introduced to the Measurement Map™ that visually depicts the causal chain of evidence between training and business goals. After this session, participants will be able to:

    • Explain how a Measurement Map™ creates a “causal chain of evidence” between L&D investments and business outcomes
    • Discover how a Measurement Map™ defines “what to measure” to show impact
    • Create a simple Measurement Map™

    Join us to learn how the award-winning Measurement Map™ just might become the best tool in your measurement toolbox.
