Online Learning and leadership development – CMI research October 2007

by | Jan 7, 2008 | Articles

Research from the Chartered Management Institute with 998 managers and a series of in-depth interviews highlighted how value can be released from online learning in the field of management development.

The research

  • highlights drivers behind e-learning and the barriers to e-learning in management development
  • Looks at trends in self directed learning and the steps companies are taking to engage managment through adding resources such as articles, videos and case studies to the management development tool box.
  • Future directions for e-learning in this area – including the development of richer content and more integrated blended learning approaches
  • Shows how we need to capitalise on the informal learning taking place over the web in this area

Many of the findings in the field of management development are backed up by our Towards Maturity research earlier last year.

This research is free of charge and can be downloaded directly from the CMI

Additional Case study examples:

The Towards Maturity project is interested in any case studies of organisations where they have started to use e-learning more effectively in this field.

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.

By popular demand, the 2019 Learning Health Check season has now been extended until Monday 16th September. There is still enough time to complete your review and revisiting regularly can also help learning professionals to measure progress year on year, highlight areas where improvement is needed and provide evidence to build a business case for change.
