Sales of the latest handheld devices have been increased 150% over the last quarter. The senior executives asked the question, “What caused it?” Employee turnover has declined 20% in the past nine months. Senior executive asked the question, “What caused it?” This simple question “What caused it?” is asked frequently in organizations around the world.

It is not an unfair question for senior executives to ask. Our ability to isolate the effects of talent development programs positions us so that we can answer this important question in a credible and reliable way. Our inability to answer this question, opens the door to let others answer it for us. Isolating the effects of the program is not about isolating talent development initiatives from other activities going on in the organization. Far from it.

In fact, by isolating the effects of your program, you’re positioning yourself as a better business partner because you can credibly explain how you know the investments in talent development initiatives are driving results; and you can help your business partners better allocate resources to the different programs, projects, and activities in which they are investing.

During this session you will learn four techniques to isolate the effects of talent development programs. Case studies will demonstrate each technique.

Participants will calculate the improvement in business measures as described in the case studies. Don’t forget to bring a calculator.

  • Describe the importance of isolating the effects of the program
  • Apply four techniques to isolate the effects of your program
  • Determine when to use each of the four techniques covered in this session
