Stop being so rational. Loosen up. Channel your inner child and use your imagination if you want to make a compelling case for the ROI of learning.
A little imagination can go a long way. If you feel stuck evaluating and communicating the ROI of learning, try practicing some creative brainstorming. Use your imagination.
Start by asking these four questions to help you take a more systemic perspective:
Let go of being practical and rational for a moment. Allow your brainstorming to be radical and full of possibilities. Any time you lead or receive a training ask yourself: what might the impact of this learning be? How far could the ripples of the impact reach?
Use your imagination - sky's the limit.
