How to Use key Training metrics to Create Better Learning outcomes

Management guru Peter Drucker once said, “[only] what gets measured, gets managed.”

Learning and development or L&D is an important sub-section of Human Resources.

The goal of Learning and development is to align employee performance with the organization’s goals. Those responsible for learning & development within an organization must identify skill gaps amongst the workforce and then develop training to bridge those gaps.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to learning and development plans as every employee and department is different. Each training plan should be tailored to meet the needs of the employee, their current skill sets and future role.Regardless of what industry you work in, your training needs to have a purpose and produce outcomes — whether they are to inform, teach, improve, or change.

Most successful training programs have been found to not only improve performance but also increase the organization’s bottom line by increasing employee retention and engagement rates.

However, a lot of the money that is invested in employee development and training is wasted on ineffective training and what is worse is that often in these cases,L&D managers struggle to determine what is causing poor training results.

Data-driven learning is the key factor in optimizing enterprise training programs for learner success.By collecting and analyzing data, of how learners engage in their online programs, organizations can get a better picture of of what aspects of training are working, where you need to improve, and the steps you need to take to make those improvements.

Here are a few key benefits of using the Analytics and Reporting feature of an LMS:

An LMS generates granular reports organized by employee, team, course, or business unit based on real-time data, tracking learners’ activity, progress, and competencies.

The Analytics feature of an LMS provides valuable insight into class performance after every session,Identify the dips in class engagement and performance and Work on the weak areas of your course content accordingly.

The LMS Reporting feature can mitigate risks by monitoring training compliance within your organization.The LMS facilitates compliance training by sending email alerts to learners in addition to the notifications, reminding employees of the mandatory training program that they need to complete.
