Predictive Learning Analytics is a revolutionary new measurement and evaluation methodology for increasing training transfer in your learning programs. It bridges the learning/application gap by using five key metrics to pinpoint the underlying causes of scrap learning associated with your training programs. It also provides specific direction as to where you should invest your time and effort to maximize training transfer. In short, it moves your measurement and evaluation efforts from measurement to management.

The program consists of four three-hour modules spread over two weeks. Also included are three hours of voluntary virtual group coaching (See the infographic below). Workshop enrollment is limited to 15 participants to ensure time for small group breakout room activities, Q&A, and one-on-one time with Ken Phillips, the methodology's creator and chief architect.


About the workshop:
After attending this innovative, highly interactive, "how-to" workshop, you will be able to:

  • Identify the impact scrap learning has on wasted organization resources and lost credibility with business executive stakeholders.
  • Use five key Predictive Learning Analytics™ metrics to identify the underlying causes of scrap learning associated with a training program. 
  • Objectively determine which participants are most likelyat-risk and least likely to apply what they learned in a training program back on the job.
  • Objectively determine which managers of the program participants are likely to provide active or passive support for the training.
  • Objectively determine which research-based training transfer components and training transfer factors contribute the most and least to training transfer.
  • Calculate the amount of scrap learning associated with a training program and identify the obstacles inhibiting participants from applying what they learned.
  • Validate the accuracy of your participant training transfer predictions using Level 2 and Level 3 evaluation data. 
  • Create reports showing your Predictive Learning Analytics™ results and gain increased credibility with business executive stakeholders.

About the coaching sessions:
Following module 2 and module 4 of the workshop, Ken will conduct optional virtual coaching sessions. In these sessions you can ask questions and clarify information as it pertains to your specific situation. Everyone is encouraged to attend the sessions, but they are voluntary.

About your independent implementation project:
To obtain the Predictive Learning Analytics certification, you must plan and implement a PLA project in a workplace training environment. Ken will be available to answer questions and provide guidance on your project. Upon completion of a written report on your project, you will earn the PLA certification.
