Towards Maturity’s 7 secrets of top performing L&D teams

by | Oct 7, 2013 | Articles

Today’s L&D function is under intense pressure. Globalisation, technology, continual change and focus on talent means that more is demanded of learning teams who have diminishing resources to draw on.

This presentation by Towards Maturity Managing Director, Laura Overton, draws on research with over 2,900 organisations to outline 7 secrets of top performing teams. The presentation was first delivered as part of a webinar in conjunction with SuccessFactors, a SAP company.

Since our first report – Linking Learning to Business 10 years ago, we have been investigating the behaviour of successful learning organisations. For us, successful teams are those who are delivering bottom line business impact, motivating and supporting staff in meaningful ways and delivering results efficiently and effectively. In the Towards Maturity Model, we have identified 6 workstreams of behaviour that consistently influence results.

In this presentation, first delivered as part of a webinar in conjunction with our founding Ambassador, Successfactors, on the 3rd of October, we’ve distilled 7 secrets of top performing L&D teams. Just working on one of these secrets will help you take a single step forward, working on them all will really accelerate your progress.

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.
