ââLast week we investigated what information you need to be armed with before presenting your case to management. But once youâve gotten your information, you have to be prepared to give it to the right people. Data doesnât always speak for itself, at least not in a language that will resonate with the intended audience. As a learning leader, you may be confident in the conclusions drawn from the data, but in the Give Information step, itâs your job to make your customers confident in the data as well.
In a previous post, I introduced the 3G's of gaining stakeholder buy-in for L&D's projects and transitions to new learning models. The first G, getting information, seems obvious, but too often, learning leaders donât fully complete the step and approach executives or key partners before having their case in order. This can be a fatal mistake to L&D's long-term plans, and I'd like to discuss how to avoid it in this post.
