7 characteristics of highly aligned L&D departments

by | Jun 26, 2013 | Articles

This workshop, conducted at the L&S Summer Forum June 2013, considered the characteristics of highly aligned L&D departments as defined by the new Towards Maturity In-Focus report Aligning Learning to Business (download at www.towardsmaturity.org/in-focus2013/alignment ). 

These slides contain practical lessons learned and hints and tips from the 60 participating delegates looking at 2 questions:

  • How can we better demonstrate the value of our learning offering to those that matter?
  • How can we help staff be clearer about how their learning supports organisational success?

The workshop also introduces the new Towards Maturity Alignment Index to help L&D functions benchmark against each other to improve alignment and business results. Find out your Alignment Index and much more by taking part in the Towards Maturity Benchmark at www.towardsmaturity.org/benchmarking.

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.

By popular demand, the 2019 Learning Health Check season has now been extended until Monday 16th September. There is still enough time to complete your review and revisiting regularly can also help learning professionals to measure progress year on year, highlight areas where improvement is needed and provide evidence to build a business case for change.
