Driving Business Benefits – Sector Benchmark launched

by | Mar 27, 2009 | Articles

Individuals with responsibility for implementing learning technologies in their own workplace were invited to participate in the Towards Maturity Benchmark between October and November 2008.

Over 300 organisations took part and 7 sectors had 25 or more organisations providing data, allowing us to dig in deeper and compare sector experiences.

  1. Education
  2. Public services
  3. Health
  4. Finance
  5. IT and Telecoms
  6. Professional and technical
  7. Service activities

This annex to the Driving Business Benefits report, summarises key differences between these different sectors in relation to their experiences of learning technologies in the workplace.

We take a closer look at the following for each of the 7 sectors:

  • Drivers for e-learning investment
  • Benefits
  • Technologies and services
  • Skills offerings
  • Barriers to change
  • Implementation strengths

Who will benefit from this report?

  • All who participated in the Benchmark review – you can compare your results with others in your sector
  • Those new to e-learning who are looking for specific evidence to back your business case for your sector
  • Learning providers (both public and private) looking to improve learning provision and customer care within specific sectors

This annex is part of a suite of research reports. The full research findings are discussed in detail in Driving Business Benefits (feb 09), but this Sector Perspectives report provides a sector view on some of the key findings that we trust will be useful for both employers and learning providers in those sectors.

The Great Training Robbery

The Great Training Robbery

According to research published by Harvard Business School (HBS), organisations across the globe are experiencing ‘The Great Training Robbery’ because the correct conditions and culture for learning are not in place. People are not ready and willing to change, and ultimately learn.

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

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.
