The ROI of Learning
December 8, 2013 Leave a comment
Don’t make me laugh.
The COUNTLESS conversations I have had about the ROI of learning. *bangs head against wall*
“The C-suite need to know.”
“If we can’t measure it, how will we know it was a success?”
“Yes, the idea has merit, but does that equate to bums on seats?”
And yet it keeps coming up.
I keep having it, and you know what? I’ve had enough. Enough of trying to articulate the ROI or the ROE of learning.
What was the ROI of your life when it was the last moments and you were on your deathbed? Asked no-one. Ever.
It takes money and investment to learn and develop. Yes, yes it does sadly. Mostly because education demands that people are taught the right skills and given the right tools so they discover things for themselves. So education becomes a commodity just like everything else on the stock exchange.
