How to Build a Business Case for Formalization of Learning Analytics
John Mattox is the Director of Research for Knowledge Advisors, the world’s leading learning and talent analytics company. John is responsible for mining approximately 1 billion data points in the Metrics That Matter® system to gain insight for internal and external clients through advanced statistical techniques and integration of business data with human capital systems. John has led training evaluation teams at KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers and is currently living in Nashville TN.
This presentation will offer practical yet credible advice on how learning leaders should go about the process of building a business case to formalize learning analytics into the L&D organization and budget. The session will cover critical tools and techniques to establish relevancy for learning measurement and positively create a culture supportive of L&D measurement. During this session John will provide an overview of the attributes necessary to create and sustain L&D analytics and review techniques (KPIs, pilot/beta tests, financial analysis) to create the business case.

Greater Boston Chapter of ASTD Recognized with 2012 Membership Star
Greater Boston ASTD was recognized for sharing the ideas and success it has had with driving membership engagement and Chapter leadership succession through volunteerism. The goal of the Volunteerism Program was to recruit and organize volunteers to accomplish key processes and activities to energize the chapter and increase member engagement. Through social media, meetings, our website and newsletters we put out a call for volunteers to form committees and accomplish key initiatives for the chapter. Our Learning and Development colleagues stepped forward in such force that we soon created a “Volunteer Coordinator” position dedicated to oversight of the Volunteerism Program.
