Lew Walker is the Vice President of Learning Services at AT&T. He is an accomplished human resource executive who has continued to advance the growth of human capital analytics and their value to an evolving industry.

“After the positive response we received from our first book and evaluating what the industry needed – we moved forward with writing a second book focusing on our analytics work within learning and development. This is where a decade of our work was primarily focused. There is a real and pressing need for the advancement of analytics in the world of L&D. We want to help them move away from qualitative measurement methodologies and push the boundaries for further insights,” said Gene Pease, author and CEO of Vestrics.
