This study uncovers how companies use information gathered from learning evaluations. It also identifies which techniques are most strongly linked to successful evaluation and, generally, better market performance. In addition, the study looked at specific practices and how they are implemented, but the most valuable use of evaluation is to improve overall business results. Data analysis suggests that evaluation in most organizations focus on three factors: to ultimately improve overall business results; to demonstrate to others in the organization the value of the learning function; and to ensure that learning programs positively influence the behaviors of employees.
