July Chapter Meeting:

Your Training Programs May Not Be as Effective as You Think

Event Description

How much of the learning is wasted in your organization?  5%?  10%?  30%?  Would you be surprised to learn that most organizations waste roughly 50% of their investment in development programs because learners only apply 50% of what they learn?  It’s shocking how much is invested and lost each year.  This session will focus on defining scrap learning and measuring it within your organization.
