Record Participation in 2011 Towards Maturity Benchmark

by | Aug 24, 2011 | Articles

Our thanks go to a record 600 organisations who contributed to the 2011 Toward Maturity Benchmark Study – a 50% increase in the number of 2010 participants.

To date 1800 organisations have participated in the Towards Maturity Benchmark since it began and during June and July 2011 a record 600 organisations took part investing over 400 hours in the process.

Here is just some of the feedback we’ve had from the participants as they completed their 2011 review-

  • Thank you for the great ideas I’ve gathered while filling up this survey.
  • It was a good time for reflection. Good Work and we wish you success for this initiative, Thanks
  • Keep up the good work. Detailed questions, but realistic approach. Thank you !
  • Thanks –  looking forward to the results being shared, learning from this and using to promote within the organisation
  • We thought the survey was really good and gave us the opportunity to reflect on things that we could use going forward.
  • Great thought provoking questions, look forward to seeing the results!
  • Can’t wait to see the results – looking forward to being able to plan what and how we can improve.
  • This has really helped focus on some areas and relationships we need to improve on if we are to successfully progress learning technologies.
  • Once again a lengthy study, that I trust will prove interesting in terms of insights. This remains one of the best studies of the UK market and specifically e-Learning. I am still waiting for when learning through technology becomes the dominant modality. I await your report with great interest. Many thanks
  • Great initiatives – industry benchmarks would be very useful
  • Cant wait to see how bad we are!
  • This has been a very interesting process to go through and has given me some ideas for the future however, as always, working in a charity sometimes really impacts on what can realistically be achieved
  • Excellent survey – thank you very much indeed!
  • Thank you – I’ve done this a couple of times now – and it keeps me sharp
  • I’m exhausted 🙂

We’ve also had constructive feedback on some of the questions and style which we will be acting on as we continually review the benchmark process.

 

Early results will be available in the middle of September and the  2011 report will be released on the 10th of November – find out more .

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.
