Training takes time and costs money. It produces a return on investment only when it is applied on the job in a way that improves performance.

This presentation is based on the best-selling Six Disciplines of Breakthrough Learning. It focuses on six practices that ensure training adds value, beginning with aligning to the business needs and ending with documenting the results in ways that both prove and improve value.

This program will include an interactive discussion on "next steps" to apply the Six Disciplines to your own work.
