Session Four:  

  Getting Internal Buy-in for eLearning

Presented By: Ajay Pangarkar

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

12:00pm - 1:00pm

About the Session:

Decision-makers often views training efforts as a line expense for a specific period. Rarely is any type of training activity considered an investment, apart from specific tangible elements.

Various aspects of e-learning initiatives are considered investments because they call for tangible financial requirements, including technology and supporting infrastructure viewed as capital expenditures. In this session you will discuss the specific financial literacy tools used to build a comprehensive financial structure to support your e- and m-learning projects and obtain senior management buy-in.

You will explore why trying to convince based only on qualitative factors is insufficient. You will use tools such as cost-volume-profit, break-even, and net-present-value to evaluate a training investment—the same tools senior management uses to run the business.

Learning Objectives:

  • Apply financial tools to build an effective case for e/m-learning.
  • Utilize the financial skills to communicate e/m-learning.
  • Implement an e/m-learning budgetary/forecasting process.
  • The skills to communicate e/m-Learning effectiveness.
