LINE gives TM Benchmark Report 2013 a big thumbs up

by | Nov 18, 2013 | Articles

LINE, a TM Ambassador, has given a big thumbs up to Towards Maturity’s New Learning Agenda TM Benchmark Report 2013. You know when articles use metaphors based on the Great British Bake off that it’s going to make positive reading!

In John Helmar’s review phrases like a ‘good firm bake’ and ‘nutritious ingredients’ seek to highlight not just the value but also the readability and attraction of our latest Benchmark report!

Here’s just a taster from LINE’s review of our New Learning Agenda TM Benchmark Report 2013, with a link to the full version at the bottom of the page.

The Great British Fact-off: new Towards Maturity benchmark, straight from the oven

This is a good time for anniversaries. Just as LINE comes up to 25 years at the cutting edge of learning technologies, at the same time Towards Maturity, everybody’s favourite benchmarking practice for learning innovation, is celebrating its tenth birthday. And here, with this report, is the cake: deep, rich and multi-layered.

Significant as this birthday is in itself, it also means that Towards Maturity is now sitting on ten years of data, which for a longitudinal study means that the value just keeps on increasing. Towards Maturity has marked this anniversary by looking back over that period to see how learning has developed, and by adding a learner perspective in the shape of its Learning Landscape study, surveying over 2,000 learners.

The results make a fascinating read, full of revelatory detail.

Some research reports are all icing. They provide little sustenance once you get beyond the headline results in their executive summaries. Sometimes an infographic covers it, and if we venture any further into the detail of the report it will be merely in order to check the hygiene of the processes (base, methodology, etc.) that support that headline result, and to make sure that a toothsome exterior is not concealing contradictory evidence in the detail that might have revealed another flavour of meaning entirely if differently presented.

The opposite is true with Towards Maturity’s benchmark report, now an annual fixture in the e-learning calendar. To extend the food metaphor, their executive summary – this year with its nine-point New Learning Agenda – begins to seem like a mere amuse-bouche once you get into the main meat of the report. On almost every page there is something nutritious to ingest about what is going on in organisations. This is not just a cake in fact, but a feast in multiple courses…

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.

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.
