This logic model is a flexible planning tool to drive enhanced performance reviews, learning networks, and more reliable and meaningful outcome indicators for both corporate and government training professionals.  

Find out about our best practices in leading indicators for development, and discuss a recent successful client engagement with one of the largest organizations in the country. Jon will brief the audience on how to track improvements in outcomes and develop new indicators to show changing contextual information surrounding the organization’s mission. You'll end up with a proven, outcome-based planning process that emphasizes starting “with the end in mind.” Plus, you'll understand what critical short-term changes must occur to demonstrate real returns for any organization.
