Crystalle Ramey, President & Chief Bulb Architect, The Bulb Effect

All learning professionals talk about the importance of achieving level 3 and 4 measurements on their learning solutions, but how many actually do it?  Many don’t know how, or claim to not have the time.  You’ll have plenty of time if you can’t demonstrate the value a learning team brings to an organization and the impact the learning solutions have on learners and business strategy.  Bring a current project you are working on and let’s discuss and strategize how you can prioritize and demonstrate learning impact in your organization.

After completing this session, you should be able to:

1. Identify data sources and answers needed to get to the right metrics.
2. Articulate how to overcome measurement barriers.
3. Build a level 3 and 4 strategy for a project you are working on.

Crystalle Ramey is President and CBA (Chief Bulb Architect) of “The Bulb Effect.” The Bulb Effect focuses on building ‘aha!’ moments that enable you or your company to GROW, SHINE and SUCCEED.  These aha! moments can come in a variety of shapes and sizes; from scalable learning solutions (Web-based, instructor-led, virtual), to informal Video-Based Learning (VBL) and mobile. We will also ensure that our company gives back by picking a non-profit each year to do pro bono project and will also, beginning in 2016, offer a scholarship to an up and coming, dedicated comedian to further his/her craft.  This year our pro bono work will be for the Girl Scouts – we will build a 4 module learning solution to help remove the manual nature of filling orders each year which is the bulk of their fundraising efforts.  By creating efficiencies for them through training, we hope to free their time to focus on developing and shaping the young minds of the young ladies who participate in this phenomenal organization.

She has over 20+ years of Corporate Learning & Development experience for companies such as MasterCard International, JPMorgan Chase, Time Warner Cable Business Class and most recently at Kelly Services. Her roots in adult learning began as a Marksmanship Instructor in the United States Marine Corps and served during the Gulf War and the Somalia Relief Effort. Her experience is complimented by her education; having achieved an AS in International Business at Westchester Community College, a BS in Organizational Development at Manhattanville College and most recently a M.Ed. in Instructional Systems Technology at UNC Charlotte. In her spare time, she refines her craft as an amateur comedian.  Additionally, she has served 2 years as the Association for Talent Development (ATD) Charlotte Chapter’s VP of Programming and is honored to serve as the President Elect in 2015.
