HCMx RadioWe are in the era of constant change enabled by technology. Instructor-led training still exists and will never entirely go away, but with dispersed geographies, and diverse and global workforces, the learning environment is drastically changing. The methods of delivery offered through numerous channels — mobile, social, gamification, etc., — raise questions about what to measure and how to measure, not to mention the use of analytics.

In Brandon Hall Group’s latest episode of HCMx Radio, co-host Michael Rochelle and I had a great discussion on the challenges and opportunities of learning measurement and analytics with Bob Blondin, Vice President at Xerox Learning Services. Bob acts as the firm’s chief learning strategist.

Bob has significant experience at the executive level aligning business goals with learning strategies and has provided strategic learning services to a variety of Fortune 500 companies.  We talked about what high-performing organizations are focusing on as we describe in our High-Performance Measurement Impact Model:
