Executives recognize that learning is necessary to meet the challenges of a complex and global economy, to drive change, and to create greater stakeholder value in short, learning is critical to an organization's present and future prosperity. Unfortunately, there are some persistent concerns within the learning and development community around the importance of learning as well as both how and when it should be provided.

The Business Case for Learning helps to put those concerns to rest by highlighting the reasons why learning is an absolute necessity, how it adds value to an organization's bottom-line and, through a methodical, 8-step, results-driven process, how to enhance the learning and talent development investment.

What this session will do for you:

Explore trends and challenges of learning and offer ways to overcome the top 5 learning dilemmas:

1. Learning is the best solution, but first to be cut in a downturn.
2. Most training is wasted.
3. The success of a learning program must be defined by application and impact.
4. The learning results desired by executives are rarely measured.
5. Some learning is not necessarily better than none.

Identify 8 steps that will enable teams to protect and increase budget:

1. Start with Why
2. Make It Feasible
3. Expect Success
4. Make It Matter
5. Make It Stick
6. Make It Credible
7. Tell the Story
8. Optimize Results
