Organizations spend billions of dollars on training every year and should expect valuable business outcomes from these expenditures, such as reduced mistakes, better service to internal and external customers, and faster implementations. The science of learning and training shows how to get the best outcomes from training, but many learning and development departments don’t use this knowledge.

Meta-analyses (statistical methods for contrasting and combining results from multiple research studies) tell us how to design, deliver, and implement training for best results. Using the training research literature, we can see what to do before, during, and after training to achieve the best outcomes.

During this webcast, we’ll discuss the steps the training literature found to be most critical during these times.
