As more than 13,000 executives from more than 80 countries met to discuss learning and talent development at ATD 2022 in Orlando, Performitiv CEO Kent Barnett helped kick things off this weekend as part of a featured ATD Forum Lab hosted by Siemens and co-presented by Dave Vance of the Center for Talent Reporting called "Zeroing In on Data That Really Matters.”
ATD Forum Labs are meant to be "a consortium for senior learning practitioners and their organizations that connect and collaborate in a confidential environment," and in this intensive working session, global learning leaders were able to learn, collaborate, ask questions and roll up their sleeves alongside their peers to accomplish some real work on the topic of continuous improvement in L&D.
While much of the discussion focused on the practical models for analyzing L&D performance, "everyone attending agreed we must do a better job linking learning to performance and focus on improving impact - not just proving impact," said Performitiv CEO Kent Barnett.
David Vance of the Center for Talent Reporting began his session by walking participants through the proven Talent Development Reporting Principles framework and discussed the importance of continuous improvement in L&D, highlighting how it aligns with the Net Impact System
The world-class learning team at Siemens has been named Learning Elite Gold for the past four years and recently graced the cover of ATD Magazine. In her presentation, Amy Graft, Lead, Global Learning World North America, talked about how Siemens focuses on developing a growth mindset that fosters lifelong learning among their team members.
She also shared their learning data journey and how Performitiv is helping them link learning to talent, business and financial outcomes to drive improvement.
Kent Barnett followed this up with a presentation on the Net Impact System, a toolset designed to help learning leaders show learning connection and contribution to business and talent impact.
He talked about how the Net Impact System fits alongside the TDRp model and the industry standard Philips ROI model.
"There is clear evidence that by establishing a system of continuous improvement, learning leaders can have an enormous impact on productivity, engagement and retention. Whether you're a world-class learning organization like Siemens, or just beginning your organization's learning measurement journey, no matter how perfect your data, just get started," says Barnett.
