    Data & Analytics: Dramatically Changing
    The Future of Training

    with Joe Halpin and Russ Powell

    Don't Get Left Behind! Data & Analytics Will Drive A Huge Wave of Change & Advancement in the Industry.

    Perhaps you've been astonished to receive an accurate “personalized recommendation” from an online retailer. Or maybe you’ve heard about how Fitbit has collected the biggest set of heart-rate data ever and medical researchers are now using this data. These kinds of uses of big data and analytics have arrived and it’s more important than ever that L&D and other performance improvement professionals understand what’s happening, why it’s important and what to do about it.

    How will I benefit if I come to this session?

    These kinds of uses of big data and analytics have arrived and it’s more important than ever that Learning & Development (L&D) and other performance improvement professionals understand what’s happening, why it’s important, and what to do about it.

    You'll learn...

      • About data science and data analytics, including the differences between

      o   Descriptive Analytics

      o   Predictive Analytics

      o   Prescriptive Analytics

      • Why culture of analytics important?
      • How big data is being used today
        • In business and society at large
        • In L&D and education
        • And its impact on performance improvement projects
          (today and going forward)

      Plus, you'll gain resources that you can use to improve your ability to create a culture of analytics, and leverage its power to transform your programs and be a part of the future of training.
