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

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.

Women in Work and Learning

Women in Work and Learning

Today is international Women’s Day; the annual occurrence that seeks to revel in how far women have come, and address how far they have left to go in the battle for gender equality. By celebrating what women have achieved, whilst highlighting the continuing inequalities they face, today plays a vital role in shedding light on women, their opinions and their experiences in life. We want to contribute to this insight and explore how you could make work place learning more effective by tapping in to the behaviours and ambitions of women in your company.

3 fresh ideas to reinvigorate busy learners in 2019

Every day your employees face dozens of clients, managers, reports and projects competing for their attention. With 55% of workers saying they lack time to learn, it is clear heading into 2019 that we need to apply some fresh forward-thinking to recapture the attention of the learners and revive their passion for learning.
