Why is it so difficult to measure the impact? • The process is time-intensive and most organizations cannot scale the process to meet enterprise-wide requirements for measuring the impact of learning on business metrics • Arriving at the right answers is not easy because the analysis is often data flawed, which delivers inconclusive answers at best regarding learning’s impact on the organization • Employees are notorious for not wanting to answer learning surveys, making data collection efforts an uphill battle and leading to low response rates • Many organizations do not have a way to evaluate learning impact, which leads to a lack of understanding of how to improve
