In-Focus: Driving the New Learning Organisation

by | May 3, 2017 | Featured, In-Focus Reports

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

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

About the Benchmark

The Towards Maturity Benchmark Study is an internationally recognised longitudinal study on the effective implementation of learning innovation based on the input of 5,000+ participants and 35,000 learners gathered since 2003. Towards Maturity continuously surveys and studies how people learn at work and the impact this has on organisational performance. 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.

Top Tips for Building Habits

Top Tips for Building Habits

As learning professionals, we want to design interventions that lead to lasting change. Shifting behaviour involves a process that continues long after the programme finishes. Our research has shown that mature learning organisations are more successful at integrating learning and work, but they don’t abandon formal learning. One of their strategies is to design learning campaigns and programmes that build and encourage new habits.
