Kevin is a Learning & Development detective and just like Sherlock Holmes, he solves mysteries. The mystery he solves is, "What is the impact of learning?". He investigates efficiency, effectiveness, and outcomes. He looks for facts, clues, evidence, and data for learning's impact on behavior, performance, and actions.
Kevin's reach is global with keynotes and presentations around the world including Africa, Europe, and North America. His message is rooted in truth and opportunity for measuring impact. Kevin says, "Measuring impact for learning is hard work. If your purpose is committed to business goals, your learning solutions and experiences are connected to workforce performance, and your measurement efforts are led by curiosity, you will find the answer."
"When I asked Kevin if he would share his knowledge and expertise with a UK and European audience of 600 Chief Learning Officers at Learning Live, I knew he would do a great job. What I didn't anticipate is the huge impact his talk has made on the people who attended our event." - Edmund Monk, CEO, The Learning and Performance Institute
When you connect learning with business goals, you have a winning strategy for measurable impact.
The data you collect for measuring impact reveals efficiency and effectiveness for your learning solutions.
Don't measure for the sake of measurement. Measure to answer questions, reveal insights, inform decisions, and take action.
Finding facts, evidence, and data for the impact of learning may not be easy but it's possible.
Find one thing about a person's behavior or performance you can attribute to learning and let that lead to the facts about impact.
If someone were to ask, “Do you have evidence for the impact of your learning programs?”, what would your answer be?
Don't be afraid when facts, evidence, and data tell you there is no impact. Be afraid of not doing anything with what the facts, evidence, and data tell you.
