Business briefing explores learning with analytics to execute strategy

The global Business Execution software company, SuccessFactors, an SAP company, recently released a business briefing titled Learning and Analytics: Why learning with analytics bridges gaps in your workforce’s capabilities, improves performance and delivers a quantifiable ROI. The briefing explores the relationship between learning and analytics, how it is often misunderstood, and how it can be effectively utilised to successfully deliver the business strategy.

When discussing business analytics, the focus tends toward reporting within a specific learning management system highlighting course completions, scores, pass rates, and usage data. Although this information is useful, it doesn’t really help a business establish a connection with what is happening within the organisation, or whether the training is having the desired effect of boosting productivity, improving service and raising levels of efficiency.

The SuccessFactors’ business briefing explains how to use business metrics and analytics to support learning programs in order for businesses to start seeing the impact.

The Learning and Analytics business briefing has been released in conjunction with a free webinar organised by SuccessFactors. The webinar is set to explore the benefits of workforce planning, analytics and learning strategies in relation to the successful delivery of the business strategy.

The webinar, titled Identifying the link between workforce data, people development and productivity with your bottom line, will be taking place on Wednesday 28th March 2012 between 14:00-15:00 (GMT).

Speaking at the event will be the authors of the Learning and Analytics business briefing; Peter Howes, VP, Analytics & Planning at SuccessFactors, and Ed Cohen, VP, Learning Technology at SuccessFactors.

Key takeaways from the webinar include:

  • Learn about the tools you need to synchronise your learning and talent management strategies with your overall corporate strategy.
  • How innovative reporting and analytics can help drive better business outcomes and give HR and learning leaders authoritative insight into the state of their talent and talent development initiatives
  • The benefits of focusing on workforce analytics with learning
