Do you suspect your budget is going to be wasted on training that isn’t really needed? Have you ever wanted to make the process more effective, but been so busy that you never get the chance to unpack what’s working and what’s not? Do you want to be able to demonstrate value to your stakeholders?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then that is exactly why I’ve written How to Not Waste Your Money on Training. This book is a practical look at how you can avoid wasting money on training that may not be needed. It is also a valuable insight into how to find out hat the organisation really needs, and that might NOT be training!!
Before you buy this book, I would love to give you an idea of what you’ll get out of it, because your time is important to me. It is about how you can help your colleagues perform better, as well as measuring that improvement.
The book is for you, as an L&D professional, manager or stakeholder in any industry, if you are interested in aligning learning to what your organisation is trying to achieve. It will help you collect the right information to inform your decisions on what sort of learning is most appropriate (if indeed, it is even necessary). It is for you if you’d like to uncover and fulfil your organisation’s needs. It is for you also if you have some great ideas on how to do this, but need a little more clarity on how to piece it together. It is for you if you want to demonstrate the value of learning, but need to know how to embark on this journey or continue if you have already begun.
What you’ll get from this book:
- A simplified approach to uncovering what an organisation needs
- More clarity on how L&D can perform better by working with the organisation
- An approach to ensure tangible outcomes from learning
- Practical tools to help you and the organisation become more agile so that you can achieve your goals
What you’ll be able to do:
- Create a plan to successfully understand the organisation and get closer to what it really needs
- Create a plan for managing your stakeholders (and identifying them if you haven’t done so yet)
- Analyse the information you collect in a number of different ways
- Present your findings in a number of different ways
- Find the ‘story’ in your information to inform any decisions
- Make the link between the information you collect and analyse, and the evaluation process
