Eagle's Flight Publishes Guides to Measuring Training and Development Programs

Industry Leader in Practical Business Training Programs Offers Resources to Help Companies Minimize the Effects of Learning Decay

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - August 23, 2016) - Eagle's Flight, an industry leader in the development and delivery of practical training programs for the global business community, today announced it is publishing two resources aimed at helping companies better measure the effectiveness of training and development programs and reduce learning decay. More details about these resources are available at www.eaglesflight.com/solving-learning-decay-in-organizational-training-and-development and www.eaglesflight.com/toolkit-for-organizational-training-and-development.

The concept of learning decay states that the more time elapsed after a person acquires information, the more that person will forget what was presented. Research has shown that 70 percent of knowledge learned in a classroom will be forgotten within the first week -- and 90 percent after a month. Eagle's Flight's new resources explore why learning reinforcement and measurement strategies are critical for businesses to sustain the impact of training and, ultimately, decrease the inevitable learning decay. The two resources offered are:

"Choosing the right training program is only half the battle of successful training and development. It's equally important to build a reinforcement strategy to ensure the behaviors learned stick," says Michelle Bennett, Marketing Manager for Eagle's Flight. "Without these important elements, learning decay will inevitably take over and put a company's investment at risk. Our new resources give organizations a blueprint for reducing decay, measuring results, and increasing the effectiveness of their learning initiatives."
