Purpose
The purpose of this paper is to explain the need for ROI in the training and measurement space and thenarticulate a methodology to obtain an ROI for training based on the increase in human capital that isrealized through the training. The ROI methodology is one that is replicable and scaleable so that it maybe collected and reported in a cost efficient and timely manner and such that it is comparable andbenchmark-able—both within an organization and external to the organization.
Analytics
For decades companies have struggled with the real costs, benefits and ROI of training. Using new toolsand technology now available, organizations can apply business analytics to understand the activity,effectiveness and impact of e-learning and training. Enter analytics.Analysis requires data. If your organization has implemented some kind of LMS which housesenrollments, completion data, scores, certifications, etc. then you have the basis for an analytics system.It’s important here to note the difference between analytics and reports. Most LMS systems have built-inreports. Although reporting tools are important, they alone do not provide the information for building acompelling case for training. Instead, a report should be the result of an analysis. Before you can create areport, you have to dive into the information and separate or distinguish the component parts of traininginitiatives and results to discover inner relationships. From there you can create a report to view thatinformation regularly.This concept of analytics is to provide a software solution that allows an organization to understandwhat’s going on in his or her training and e-learning operations. To do so, the solution should answer basic business questions, such as:How much did something cost?
What were the components of the cost?Who took or completed a learning offering?What can we do to improve it?In addition, a training analytics solution should give different users the information they need to makedecisions. To that end, Bersin & Associates has identified three categories of analytics users or information consumers. Depending on their jobs, they use information for different purposes:
Audience Analytics Needs Decisions They Make
ExecutivesOverall metrics, financialinformation, compliance, andtraining efficiency.Drive compliance, ensure training is efficient, andmake sure that employees are developed.Line ManagersTraining compliance, skillsdevelopment to meet their jobneeds, completion of mandatory programs.Drive compliance, develop people, ensure trainingcosts are reasonable, ensure that people arecompleting and learning something.Training Executives &ManagersTraining volumes, completionrates, vendor effectiveness,facility efficiency, programeffectiveness, overall costsand financial efficiency.What courses should be offered? What media andprograms work? Which audiences consume themost? Which audiences learn best? Which vendors’content performs well? How do we optimize scarceresources? What should we stop doing? What shouldwe do more of?
It’s important to keep in mind that these three different groups need slightly different views of information.Executives want dashboards or charts. Line managers typically need tabular reports and charts designedaround their audience and programs. Training managers and executives need the ability to slice, dice,drill down and filter information on a continuous basis.
