Helping L&D teams unlock the potential of their business and people

New Annual Benchmark Research

The Transformation Curve

This unparalleled time of change for organisations offers a great opportunity for L&D to shift from delivering courses to delivering strategic value. This report maps out the destination – and the roadmap of how to get there.

In-Focus: Unlock the Potential of Managers and Leaders

In today’s fast paced working world, it is important for leaders to position learning as a strategic pillar, not an enabler.  In our latest report we’re sharing the tactics that L&D teams can use to support innovation and deliver excellence in leadership programmes and ways in which technology can unlock the potential of leaders and managers.

In-Focus: Driving the New Learning Organisation

In the new world of work, successful organisations need to prioritise four things: growth in competitive markets, transformation, productivity and profitability. What characteristics influence these results?

In-Focus: The Work-Based Learning Dividend

Work-based learning offers organisations a unique opportunity to develop, nurture and grow a more qualified workforce who are aligned to their future strategy.

We help learning professionals make smart, data-driven decisions that result in lasting change.
