We are all are performance consultants no matter our role in the learning and talent development space. This session explores how performance consulting has been integrated into the learning and talent development field and will define specific roles, particularly those in the four major phases of the learning and talent development cycle.
During the initial analysis phase, when evaluating to implement a program, performance consulting is needed to connect the program with clear business measures, ensure it is the proper solution, and create expectations for success by setting objectives through the impact level.
Performance consulting is used during the second phase – program implementation – to ensure that participants have not only learned the material but that they use what they have learned on the job and deliver an impact in performance.
Performance consulting is used during the third phase to ensure credible results. If the performance consulting produced any impact, the effects of the program will need to be isolated. Additionally, if an ROI calculation is desired, data is converted to money, costs are captured, and ROI is calculated.
The final phase includes communicating results to key stakeholders.
By adhering to this process, you will be equipped to drive organizational growth and increase your program’s success.
