When thoughtful analysis of rich participant feedback is put into play, large cohorts are a highly effective way to drive strategic change and alignment among leaders.
BOSTON (PRWEB) December 18, 2017
Harvard Business Publishing, provider of world-class leadership development solutions for global companies and organizations, identifies the power of feedback in successfully implementing large cohort leadership development programs, and describes how evaluating and interpreting participant feedback can improve the business impact of the learning experience.
Large cohort learning strategies are increasingly common in organizations undergoing transformation, as they accelerate alignment of their leaders on strategy. Many organizations have found that these programs can have a lasting impact on learners when participants provide both quantitative and qualitative feedback through a variety of channels and the organization responds accordingly. This rich feedback loop can identify any changes that are required. Giving learners a variety of opportunities to provide feedback has a second benefit: it’s at the core of participant-centered learning and drives both high-quality engagement and impact.
In the new blog, “What’s In The Comments: Meaningful Interpretation,” Meg Chute, senior engagement manager at Harvard Business Publishing Corporate Learning, details how organizations can meaningfully evaluate large volumes of participant feedback and use it to enhance the learning experience and drive results. In Harvard Business Publishing’s experience, thoughtful analysis of large volumes of content can yield rich insights that enable agile changes and improvements.
When data is organized in an accessible way, interpreted thoughtfully, and analyzed holistically, themes and patterns emerge. These patterns can be used in two ways: to identify gaps that require mid-course modifications, and to help prioritize future topics or programs.
A cohort program that qualitatively and quantitatively measures participant feedback is vital to an organization. When thoughtful analysis of rich participant feedback is put into play, large cohorts are a highly effective way to drive strategic change and alignment among leaders.
