- Insider's Take
This richly detailed manual on learning measurement promotes not only evidence- and data-based learning and development (L&D), but emphasizes the need to manage learning like a business. The relatively new Talent Development Reporting Principles (TDRp) by organizational development experts Peggy Parskey and Dave Vance incorporate measurement models that Kirkpatrick and Phillips crafted a half-century ago. Importantly, however, the TDRp extends measurement and reporting beyond learner satisfaction, application, business impact and return on investment (ROI). TDRp includes using metrics to manage learning performance by regularly monitoring and adjusting training programs.
