JD Dillon, Axonify
About the session
L&D continues to struggle with connecting learning solutions to measurable business results. Too often, we look for singular measurement strategies or large-scale ROI that can account for everything we do. This is an unrealistic approach and has resulted in the negative perception of ROI within the L&D community and a continued inability to justify value within the business.
In this session, JD Dillon will present the case study of how one of the world's largest retailers found a way to not only connect learning to business outcomes but also use real-world behaviors to improve learning strategies. He will take participants through the targeted analysis and design processes that have resulted in considerable cost savings in a very brief period. He will demonstrate the technology used by frontline managers to assess and record behaviors and show how administrators, coaches and L&D professionals use this information to inform their efforts. He will also share the cultural impact of this approach and show how this 360-degree approach has improved employees' overall perception of the value of workplace learning.
