As professionals, we want to know if our work has had the impact we originally intended and to tell others about it. This means getting comfortable with data and crafting compelling data stories.

On this episode of The Mind Tools L&D Podcast, Ross G is joined by Neil Cunningham, founder of Align | Learn | Do and author of Narratives and Numbers, to discuss practical and mindset shifts L&D can take.

We explore:

  • why people think it’s too difficult to measure the ROI of learning
  • how to get stakeholder buy-in to measuring and evaluating learning
  • how to craft credible L&D data stories.
