Let's start using data effecitively

Top L&D and learning analytics experts' success stories
and insights

We use it and we inform our decisions with it. But do we truly use learning analytics potential to the fullest and in the right way?

DDI research estimates 79% of people analytics projects fail and according to i4cp 86% of companies do not go beyond generating standard reports in their data-driven operations.

In this edition of L&D Meetup, we gather Talent Management and L&D experts to present their success stories and insight-driven panels on how to use data efficiently for:

-strategic workforce planning
-reskilling and upskilling
-finding skills gaps
-designing employee learning experience
-perfect onboarding
-boosting performance and productivity.

Bear in mind: this is no boring online talk. The entire conference will be run in a hybrid, highly engaging mode our audience has already grown to love.

On March 31st, we will broadcast live from Warsaw and link with the experts from all around the world. All that with live music to jazz it up a notch!
