Introducing the New Learning Organisation…

In the new world of work, successful organisations need to prioritise four things: growth in competitive markets, transformation, productivity and profitability.

Our research shows that we need to work smarter, not harder. Organisations who track in the top 10% (Top Deck) of the Towards Maturity Benchmark are three times more likely to report benefits relating to growth, profitability, transformation and productivity than the rest of the sample of 600.

By studying these organisations, we have uncovered six characteristics that will unlock potential by driving a future-focused New Learning Organisation:

  • Clarity of purpose
  • Holistic people experience
  • Thriving ecosystem
  • Agile, digitally-enabled infrastructure
  • Continual engagement
  • Intelligent decision-making

By turning data into insights and insights into action, this research is used to help L&D leaders assess and improve the appropriateness, effectiveness and efficiency of their learning provision.

We all have blind spots, why does being aware of yours add value?

When it comes to organisational culture, performance and learning, blind spots (or as they are often referred to ‘not seeing the light’) are usually found at the root of most of our problems with work today. These problems shape our day to day conversations, thinking, mood, judgement, decisions-making, or fundamental lack of them. These issues can make or break your workplace experience.
