The article focuses on the value of training. It states that there was a need of Corporate University at Hunter Douglas, the world's largest producer of custom window coverings. The author didn't have the money or the time to do needs assessments. Nor did she have a start-up budget. The word quantifying refers to measuring the quantity and monetizing is to establish the worth in legal tender. The article views that the ease of monetizing the value of training programs can vary wildly. It is relatively easy to find much data, research, and legal information to support the case for holding training.
