New Study Launch on Leadership Development

by | Nov 26, 2014 | Articles

Nurturing great leadership skills is critical to the future success of all organisations. In a bid to save both time and money, innovative online leadership development programmes have become increasingly popular – but how effective are they?

Maintaining and building leadership skills is critical for high performing organisations across all sectors and all sizes of organisations.

We invite L&D professionals responsible for developing innovative, e-enabled approaches to leadership development programmes within their organisation, to participate in a unique industry benchmark study from Towards Maturity, supported by our Ambassador, KPMG.

We are keen to learn about the leadership programmes in your organisation. Please contribute to this research by clicking on the link below.

Take part in the 2014 Leadership Study

All participants will receive a free copy of the final report, which will be published in March 2015.

In this new study, we will build on our 2011 report, ‘Reinventing Leadership Development‘ and explore how new learning models can help to build both ideas and skills that are essential for the leaders of the future.

The aim of this research is to help all participants improve the impact of learning technologies in leadership development through the sharing of good practice.

How long will it take?

This survey will take about 20-25 minutes of your time. Individual responses will be kept completely confidential, unless agreed otherwise. The survey closes on 19 January 2015.

Background

Towards Maturity’s Modernising Learning research shows that when top leaders use learning technologies in their own development, the overall impact and business benefit of technology-enabled learning is increased across the organisation.

Whilst 92% of organisations in the 2014 Benchmark were providing leadership development, fewer than half of these programmes was e-enabled. Indeed, Directors and Senior managers are amongst the least likely to be offered blended or online programmes for their own skills development.

  • 49% report reluctance on the part of senior managers to use online materials
  • 51% report management reluctance as a major barrier to their learning and development strategy
  • only 26% of top managers are seen to use learning technologies

Learning leaders in the Top Deck are characterised by high commitment from their senior managers and excellent communications with managers at all levels and at all stages of the learning cycle.

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.
