by | Jun 6, 2013 | Articles

Looking for new ways to engage your business with learning? Check out our recommendations for the L&S group Summer Forum. If you haven’t had a moment to register for the L&S Summer Forum on the 18th of June then do it now!

If you are undecided if this is for you here are 13 reasons to help you make up your mind!

Reason one:  Laura Overton, Managing Director, Towards Maturity will be conducting an interactive workshop at the L&S group conference looking at 7 habits of highly aligned L&D teams. Come along to this practical session will help you to:

  • Operate more effectively as a business partner
  • Get comfortable in demonstrating value
  • Explore the tangible benefits of alignment
  • Take the alignment test!
  • Identify a tailored action plan to become more aligned

If you can’t make that session, find out your Alignment Index by taking part in the 2013 Towards Maturity Benchmark.

Reason two:  You can pick up a new Towards Maturity In-Focus Report on Aligning learning and business  with all the hints and tips from the session from our Ambassador Acteon (stand).

Reason three: Join Laura and other Industry experts at L&D Question Time: The leaders and managers edition which is being run by the Corporate e-Learning Consortium Theatre 1pm – 15.15pm.

The Learning and Skills Group conference is free for Learning Technologies conference delegates and Learning and Skills Group members only, and you can Register here.  However, the exhibition and free seminars are open to all (but you still need to register).

Reason four: If you are interested in becoming one of the best L&D teams around, the L&S Summer forum provides a great opportunity to informally learn and benchmark with each other. But to help you apply the right lessons to YOUR organisation, we recommend that you also take part in 2013 Towards Maturity Benchmark.

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.
