Listen to the Voices of Measuring and Evaluating Training: Mary L. Broad
The ASTD Handbook of Measuring and Evaluating Training, edited by Patti Phillips, has just released. This book serves as a comprehensive go-to reference and a roadmap to developing effective processes. Each chapter is written by an expert in the field, chosen for their experience and actual results in specific areas. From evaluation planning and data collection, to data analysis and measurement, you’ll gain insights and practical advice from individuals who have applied their tools and methods in organizations worldwide. At the end of the book, a special section called “Voices” hosted by Rebecca Ray features summarized interviews with eight world-renowned gurus. These complete interviews are available as podcasts online! Our next legend to highlight is Mary L. Broad, PhD, a certified performance technologist who has served on the ASTD Board of Directors.
