Webinar Recording – Boosting Operational Efficiency for L&D: A Data-Based Recipe for Accurate Planning & Scheduling

Recorded: May 27th, 3PM EST
Guest Speaker: Robyn A. Defelice, PhD

Have you ever tried cooking a complex meal without a list of ingredients, measurements and cooking times in front of you? If so, you’ll know that it spells disaster for your stress levels in the kitchen, the quality of the meal you produce and the enjoyment of the people you’re serving.

Similarly, your L&D operations can impact how efficiently your team works, the quality of the training produced and the satisfaction levels of your stakeholders. When you don’t have a tight grasp on how long it takes your team to create different types of training, all of your operations and outputs suffer the consequences. Capacity planning and resource management become difficult or inaccurate. Your training team becomes weighed down and burned out. Scheduling projects is little more than a shot in the dark.

So, what’s the recipe for optimal operational efficiency in L&D? 

In this recorded webinar, Robyn A. Defelice, PhD, shared her expertise garnered over a 20 year career as a learning strategist and consultant. Through her ongoing study in conjunction with ATD, Robyn has been answering the question of “how long does it take to create training” for over a decade.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:

  • Collect and collate L&D operational data 
  • Leverage that data to inform capacity planning & resource management
  • Gain insight into the agility of your L&D team’s operations
  • Model your operational data to predict resource availability in relation to training demand
