As a training company, it's vital for accurate training measurement that you can report on every area of your business in a detailed and effective manner. This means that even if you offer lots of different training, such as classroom-based sessions, eLearning, blended learning and virtual instructor-led training, you need to be able to pull all the relevant data about your business into your reports so you can examine the performance of your entire business.

Do you turn to YouTube to watch funny stunts or quick demos on how to do things? Even if you don't use YouTube for personal learning or entertainment, as an L&D leader you can't afford to ignore it. YouTube is currently the second-most popular site in the world; people upload more than 400 hours of content each minute, and consume more than one billion hours of content daily. Clearly, the most-subscribed YouTube channels have figured out how to keep people coming back for more. We in L&D can look to YouTube to improve training.
A recent study suggests HR overall may be losing influence within their organizations as managerial priorities shift. To keep up, HR departments must shift their focus from "process heavy" tasks to people strategies that include developing leaders and retaining talent through data-driven means. The skills gap and its potential impact across industries is clearly being felt from the C-suite down.

"I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail," Abraham Maslow, one of the pioneers in the psychology and training field, once said. The job of trainers, then, is to build up their toolboxes, so they can respond with more than a hammer. Trainers can determine what tools they need by doing a little discovery, also known as needs analysis.
