Evaluating Learning to Optimise Performance

Discover a simple, credible and effective way to successfully measure and evaluate the impact of a piece of learning.

One course. Five popular modules from our in-house programme. Two delivery mediums to choose from.


What You Will Cover

The Evaluating Learning to Optimise Performance course covers these five popular modules from our learning impact and instructional design in-house programme:

OLP01: Beyond Happy Sheets: Scoping and Planning Your Evaluation


Unlike so much evaluation of training which is, frankly, just an after-thought (think typical 'happy sheet') our approach is 'baked in' from the outset.
This module helps you:
  • identify what you really need to achieve from a piece of learning
  • ensure this is properly aligned with business needs, and
  • identify who to liaise and build relationships with outside L&D to ensure ultimate success.
Implicit in this approach is the recognition that ultimate success and performance improvements come from evolving, refining and supporting a learning intervention, by gathering and assessing qualitative feedback and quantitive metrics.

OLP02: Defining and Creating Your Impact Model


Central to your training evaluation approach will be your Impact Model. This will build on the scoping and planning work previously completed.

This module shows you how to define and create your Impact Model by identifying :

  • the issues that could, overall, depress the application of the new learning
  • the skills and knowledge to be covered in the learning, categorised by job role
  • what successful application of skills actually looks like, back in the workplace
  • the desired optimal improvement in performance the learners could ultimately achieve, once back on-the-job, and
  • how these optimal performance improvements align with high-level business goals.

OLP03: Designing Post Training Engagement 


Engaging fully with a range of learners post-training will provide a rich seam of data and insights to help you fully evaluate effectiveness.
This module shows you how to:
  • identify the learners most likely to provide useful insights and data for your evaluation
  • approach and motivate these learners to respond to your strategy
  • focus on the most important factors and issues when engaging with these learners post-training, and
  • frame investigative questions and follow-ups to achieve the fullest and most meaningful responses.

OLP04: Exploring Learner Success & Frustration


This module shows you how to dive deep into an investigation of:

  • your participants experiences with the training itself
  • how they have (or haven't) used the learning back in the workplace, and
  • the factors that have contributed positively or negatively to these outcomes.

You will also discover how to probe for valid responses and how to cross-check the data you are gathering, to ensure you are building an accurate and holistic picture of success (or lack of it).

OLP05: Assessing Overall Learning Impact and ROI


This module will show you how to analyse and collate information gathered from earlier stages of the evaluation to:
  • create powerful information which enables you to identify the level of success and its overall value
  • extrapolate any potential unrealised value of the training, and
  • formalise conclusions and recommendations for improving the impact of your training programme for your business/organisation.

How You Benefit

This course will help you to:
  • implement robust but straightforward tasks and processes to massively improve the value and effectiveness of the training you deliver
  • break free from the role of submissive L&D supplier and order-taker, and
  • become a respected expert, providing genuine value and benefit to your colleagues across your organisation.

Who Is It For?

This course is ideal for:
  • training directors, managers and team leaders, looking to raise the impact, success and profile of their respective departments and teams
  • anyone involved with the design of training who wants to add value to the work they carry out
  • anyone new to a training role who wants to start out doing their job as effectively as possible
