Part 1 – Celebrate!

Welcome to a new year with the ATD Detroit and it’s time to celebrate! We will look back at all that was accomplished in 2015 and look forward to what is in store for 2016. We will also introduce new board members and recognize those stepping down.

Part 2 – Learn!
The second half of our meeting will be a structured knowledge share led by local experts from the local ATD Detroit community. You will have an opportunity to exchange information, knowledge and questions with other members and guests in 3 of the topic areas identified in the list below.

ROI: Estimates and Forecasts don’t have to be that complicated!

Sometimes you need a quick, uncomplicated method for an Return on Investment (ROI) on a performance improvement or training intervention. While an in-depth ROI analysis – developed along-side the intervention – may be the ideal, it is not always feasible. In some circumstances a credible forecast or estimate is the best option for providing ROI. The focus of this session is a discussion of ideas and tips for identifying credible measurements for ROI.
