Have you ever wondered what participants really do with what they learn during your training? You might know how many participants you have trained, but how do you know if they apply what they have learned in practice? Many development projects struggle to look beyond the numbers of products and services they deliver and understand what happens after.A famous saying, often wrongly attributed to Albert Einstein goes as follows: “not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts”.
