Join Dave Vance, Executive Director of the Center for Talent Reporting and former President of Caterpillar University, to learn about an exciting industry-led initiative to bring standard principles, measures, reports and management practices to the L&D field. In this interactive session, Dave will explore these standards called Talent Development Reporting Principles (TDRp) and how they can improve our planning, management and reporting.

This session will introduce the history and key components of the TDRp framework and discuss the impact our professions have on organizational goals, as well as how best to align learning and development with those goals. Focusing on elements of a good measurement strategy and how to apply TDRp principles will help you select and report key efficiency and effectiveness measures. Dave will share his experience using these principles at Caterpillar and how this business-like approach will make you a valued, strategic business partner.

In this session you will be introduced to TDRp and the standard measures and reports. You will learn how to:

  • Achieve and demonstrate strategic alignment to your organization’s goals
  • Create a robust measurement strategy employing effectiveness and efficiency measures
  • Use standard reports to manage your program or function successfully through the year
