Measuring success in a training program is hard. It is much more difficult than answering if it is raining outside. Imagine answering the question “is it raining outside?” by replying with the temperature in Kelvin or replying with the average rainfall in meters over the last two weeks in your town.

Let’s play two truths and a lie. “I want to be a good business partner and internal thought leader at my company.” “I need to make sure our training dollar is spent right.” “I guess I’ll need to have the participants in the program do a lengthy final assessment.” We’ll take each of these in turn. First, as a leader in corporate learning, human resources, training and development of human capital management or talent, you want to be a good business partner and a thought leader at your company.
