Welcome to the CEdMA Social Community!

Posted by Pat Durante on 5/15/2017

At its heart, CEdMA has always been a social network.  CEdMA was founded in January 1991, two years before Mosaic (the first multi-media web browser) and much has transpired since those humble beginnings.  Although the power and value of meeting face-to-face is still very much in the forefront of how we learn from each other – in the form of our highly attended bi-annual Training Leadership Conferences - the power of social networking online is undeniable.  Most would agree that our work life and career management are forever intertwined with the social network.

Measuring the Impact of Training on Business Results

Posted by Pat Durante on 11/10/2016

It’s time for a big wake up call.  Education leaders have a tendency to report the “easy” metrics.  After all, we are a business within a business, so we typically report: 

  • Training Revenue
  • Training Margin
  • Number of Students Trained
  • Number of Courses Added and Revised
  • Number of Online Courses Completed
Meanwhile, our executives are yawning with disinterest.  At the end of the day, no matter how large your training business, these numbers are often a rounding error on the overall software revenue and the C-suite is not losing sleep over these numbers.
