The L&D Audit
Why Should You Consider a Learning & Development (L&D) Audit?
Many organizations spend a majority of their time focusing on the day-to-day operations of their business (rightfully so) and often, do not have the bandwidth required to conduct a systematic critical reflection of their current L&D environment to identify those important opportunities that can lead to big improvements within their training initiatives. This is totally understandable since embarking on this mission can be extremely time consuming if you don’t know where to begin and what steps to take.
An L&D audit of an organization’s training systems and processes evaluates the current state of operations in relation to emerging technological trends and relevant educational best practices. Improving upon these elements can lead to higher rates of efficiency in the systems and processes utilized, better alignment between targeted performance goals and training opportunities, and in terms of ROI, higher KPI scores that occur in the post-training phase.
A full L&D audit of your L&D systems and processes can be as specific as you need it to be. However, the more in-depth the evaluation, the more accurate the picture of your “real” current state compared to the “ideal” state will be. After we complete your audit, we will provide you with our key findings and pinpoint a series of corrective actions that can be taken to optimize your training systems and processes.
We evaluate an organization’s L&D strategies for establishing learning audiences, developing stakeholder relations, maximizing team capacity and resources, improving operational efficiency, and evaluating data and analytics in terms of training alignment to targeted performance goals, operational metrics, and learning performance analytics.
