ATD International Conference 2016: The COSTS Challenge: Make Better Decisions Understanding How CFOs Look at Your Costs

In the 1920s, J.M. Clark, a renowned economist, stated he would consider his class to be a success if the students gained an understanding of the meaning of cost in all its many aspects. Today, it is even more important because there are a larger variety and uses of cost in accounting, training, human resources, finance, economics, politics, environment, and government. For those of us in the training industry, we are often in meetings where cost numbers and financials are thrown around with expectations we understand. We may wonder where those numbers come from, what constitutes them, and even whether they are accurate. We want clarification but don't know what questions to ask. More importantly, decisions about programs and courses are often based solely on financial considerations. The more we can fluently talk about costs and other financials, the more likely we will be able to sell the value of our team and the services we provide. This session will lay a foundation for speaking "money" with those who can greatly affect what a training department can achieve. Because most training departments are cost centers, we will define "cost" comprehensively, use a tool called contribution analysis to make better business decisions, and supply several realistic mini cases that most training managers will recognize. No financial knowledge is required. The goal is to increase comfort among those who have traditionally not been financially aware.

Faster, Cheaper, Better: Designing Agile Training That Delivers Results

In this walk-the-talk, hands-on keynote at Agile Games 2016 (Cambridge MA, April 28-30), Thiagi will demonstrate an approach to rapidly creating training sessions that deliver results. Using a no-nonsense approach, the FCB method employs such principles as let the inmates run the asylum, build bridges as you walk on it, be spontaneously systematic, and be a sage by the side. In this interactive session, Thiagi will demonstrate how this approach can be applied to your agile training design (and can be ported to e-learning design also).
