Evidence-based Talent Development

In an era rampant with fake-news, gaslighting, and propaganda, how do you know your methods, procedures, and recommendations are the best? How do you evaluate the quality of potions and snake oils? Science. You know the methods are the best if scientists have studied the methodology and repeatedly demonstrated an effect. But keeping up with scientific literature to support your recommendations and methodology is no small effort. I have assembled some of the strongest evidence available for Talent Development Professionals that will be available for you to review. 

Specifically, we will review:

  • What is evidence
  • Evidence-based instructional design to improve learning
  • Evidence-based personnel selection to improve decision making
  • Evidence-based Strategic Goals, Mission, & Vision to improve performance

ATD Capabilities covered in session:

  • Business Insight 
  • Talent Strategy Management 
  • Performance Improvement 
  • Data and Analytics 
  • Collaboration and Leadership
  • Compliance and Ethical Behavior 
  • Instructional Design
  • Learning Sciences
