Dear CEdMA member,

The early Spring CEdMA Europe half-day Workshop will take place on Tue 13 March 1300-1700 UK time at SAP in Bedfont near Heathrow.

Training Metrics to Serve All Communities
Introduction by Mike Dowsey

It's important that any set of training metrics must serve the needs of Training Management, Executive Management, and Customers. We must define the problem, understand the challenges, acknowledge constraints, consider the approach then develop and implement the solution. The case study looks at a solution and implementation, and describes the resulting scorecard and dashboard.

After the break, members from different size companies with different approaches will then describe their experiences. So far, we have SAP, Juniper Networks, Sybase, Blue Coat Systems and Snell, although there may well be others!

Finally, participants will be invited to join a breakout group of their choice (based on size and/or geography) to discuss best practices. Groups will report back and their findings will be written up and made available to attendees and on the website.

I look forward to seeing you there!
