The Metrics of Talent Development: Many Metrics; One Methodology

Though many trainers know the Kirkpatrick 4 levels of evaluation, they rarely use Level 3- or department/function/organizational impact is almost never implemented. Mel’s 3Ms approach begins with describing Level 3 in precise terms and then provides a framework for managerial initiatives to accomplish Level 3 performance results that supports 1. Improved organizational performance, 2. and improved corporate culture, 3. Highly skilled staff, 4. and any skills sets that contribute to organizational cost savings, performance improvement and/or a work environment that supports staff motivation, well-being and longevity. Mel Schnapper, Ph.D. will present an innovative methodology for measuring any qualitative and/or quantitative dimension of any performance at any level that supports improved results at the individual and organizational levels. This session will focus on creating standards of performance using precise and rigorous qualitative and quantitative metrics that define the T&D value so there is no place for ambiguity regarding its contribution.. Mel will have participants apply his “3Ms: Measure, Manage and Magnify” methodology to participants’ current and/or anticipated clients to show, in measurable terms, what the client is paying for and how the can be increased.
