“As a talent development professional, you’re passionate about ensuring that your workforce is prepared to face the demands of today’s ever-changing business environment.” – ATD 2017 International Conference & Exposition
With these words in mind, our team from C2C-OD headed off to ATD2017 in Atlanta, Georgia – the largest global event for talent development professionals – to share our knowledge on demonstrating training effectiveness.
Over 300 participants attended the session facilitated by C2C-OD. The key takeaways for the attendees were:
- Gaining the ability to select cost-effective ways of collecting information at all levels that are both useful and credible
- Learning how to create practical evaluation plans
- An in-depth understanding on various tools, which will enable participants to select the methodology that will impact different levels of evaluation
- Getting creative with your evaluation style – the benefits of questioning your status quo
To demonstrate Level 1 (Reaction), we collected some spot feedback. Here is the initial response from the participants based on our session alone, all captured artistically on a flipchart:
We received some great feedback on twitter as well. Here is what one of the participants had to say, specifically on the session:
