Accelerating Performance – Launch of 2010 TM Benchmark

by | Nov 11, 2010 | Articles

Towards Maturity, in association with the Learning and Skills Group – the professional membership arm of the Learning Technologies Conference, has lifted the lid on the learning technologies and how they are used to discover what the future holds. 

Towards Maturity’s 4th benchmark  report with private, public and not for profit organisations was launched at a Learning and Skills Group webinar on 25 November.

The hostile economic climate has, paradoxically, opened up huge opportunities for learning innovation to contribute to bottom line business performance. The L&D profession stands at a pivotal moment: it is armed with new opportunities to innovate and a market-place being forced to consider change; yet it also has a poor track record and perceptions as a cost centre, not a wealth creator. 1,200 organisations have now taken part in the Towards Maturity’s industry leading benchmark and as a result we now know more about how to drive the transformation of learning than ever before. We can’t afford to wait, it’s time to act.

The full results of the latest Towards Maturity Benchmark were unveiled and discussed at the Learning and Skills Group webinar on 25 November.

Laura Overton, Managing Director of Towards Maturity, delivered the webinar and explored:

  • How the last 18 months has changed the face of learning and development
  • Responding to demand – why we can’t afford to hold back
  • How to significantly improve efficiency, take up and business agility
  • Practical lessons that accelerate performance
  • How to benchmark against the top performers

Challenging Perceptions

The corporate learning market is rapidly evolving to meet the ever-changing demands of work and worker. The C-suite and L&D leaders can no longer ignore that over 90 percent of organizations do not realize the full value of their investments.

All you need is Evidence

All you need is Evidence

Every year over $400billion is spent on corporate learning globally, yet only 15% is proven to stick. Investments in learning are continuing to grow year on year but performance impact is not changing. The industry is still struggling to provide real proof of impact, in fact, for the first time the Towards Maturity Index is tracking a significant decline. This is causing leaders to have low confidence levels in L&D.
