In this "three-act webcast," Harold Stolovich, co-author of the award-winning Telling Ain't Training, presents practical methods for learning and performance professionals to avoid wasting valuable dollars and time in training, and improve learning, retention, and ROI. The amounts of money organizations invest in training keeps escalating from year to year. Since 1991, annual training budgets in the U.S. have grown from $43.2 to $125 billion—a whopping 290% increase! This is a worldwide pattern.

Are organizations getting value for their dollars spent? Is training accomplishing what it should? What's the ROI? This fun, interactive webinar is divided into three acts, each examining how we as learning and performance professionals can avoid wasting valuable dollars and time in training. Act One focuses on whether we are using training appropriately. It asks: to train or not to train; what are the alternatives? Act Two responds to the question: Even when training is appropriate and necessary, is it ever sufficient? In Act Three, we address the question: How can we improve our training to maximize learning, retention, and ROI?
