General Session 3Power skills: the key skills for the job
Claudia Alfaro

El contexto COVID-19 en las organizaciones ha evidenciado que la adaptación tiene que ser una habilidad clave para cualquier colaborador en una organización; así como la comunicación, apertura y colaboración. Sin embargo, siendo habilidades tan intangibles y de difícil medición no suelen ser el foco de los entrenamientos corporativos, cuando en realidad son la única base que puede sostener el aprendizaje constante de habilidades más duras. En este espacio:
- Aprenderás sobre las habilidades innatas de los humanos (Habilidades humanas o Power Skills) - Cómo diseñar experiencias de aprendizaje que tengan como foco el uso de estas habilidades y poder medirlas.

General Session 9Delivering Results That Executives (and Others) Will Love
Jack Phillips

Learning and talent development expenditures have grown significantly in the past two decades, and few leaders would argue that learning is critical for organizational growth. Though, investments in programs generate mixed results. On one hand, the volume of programs has increased; on the other, business impact is less evident. Learning professionals try to measure their way to results—that is, to implement a measurement strategy to capture evidence of value. Overall, however, this attempt to capture value is not working. Learning and development practitioners must move from a value-capture focus to a value-creation focus to drive results.

Learning and talent development programs should make a difference, and these results should drive organizational change. All stakeholders involved in initiating, designing, developing, facilitating, implementing, and supporting programs must see the results of their efforts. The challenge is that few learning and development professionals have data to show top executives that their programs make a difference to the bottomline.

This session shows how to use design thinking to deliver and measure up to five levels of evaluation, including impact and ROI, and will showcase the status of measurement and evaluation by providing examples of measures at each level of the evaluation process. This session will also focus on criteria for selecting programs at the business impact and ROI levels, introduce effective methods to convert measures to monetary value, and how to identify intangibles.

Objectives
After attending this session, participants will be able to:
1. List the data sets possible from learning and talent development programs by categories, including ROI.
2. Identify the categories that are desired by top executives and other key stakeholders.
3. Explain how these measures are derived and developed.
4. Pursue a plan to measure results and communicate results to different audiences.
