Paint by Numbers: The Power of Data as a Program Design Tool

How do you guide the evolution of your program(s)? Is it more of an art or a science? A program’s longevity often depends on how well you course correct as the company’s needs evolve. And however good of a “feel” you may have for your program’s direction and effectiveness, there’s no substitute for well-conceived data to shine a light on areas of improvement and guide the action you take. But given the variety of program types and objectives, and the assortment of possible metrics, what should you measure for your specific program and how? This “workshop-style” session explores the what, why and how we measure in the leadership development space. Through facilitated small and large group discussions, brainstorming and sharing, you’ll leave the session with a clearer idea of how to use data to keep your program(s) on track, and how to recognize if it isn’t.

Improving Results through Better Orientation: A Model you can Reproduce

How well are you preparing your new hires for success in your program? The most recent LDP Survey results show a strong correlation between length of orientation and the confidence of managers in their ability to demonstrate program value. Immersive and multi-faceted orientation events pay dividends to participants, assignment managers and the company. In this session, we will explore the critical elements of orientation, and how to optimize the experience for participants. Drawing on many years of experience supporting early career development, we will share an onboarding model that provides new-hires not only the functional, business and leadership foundation they need but more importantly the confidence needed to make an immediate positive impact in their rotations and on their teams. This early success translates into better retention and higher performing graduates
