Towards Maturity release first Data Pulse report

Aug 9, 2018 | Featured, General, Press Release

Towards Maturity release first Data Pulse report exploring L&D’s relationship with data and how it can be used more effectively.

Earlier this year, Towards Maturity conducted their first L&D Data Pulse, with participation from over 150 L&D leaders in a variety of sectors and organisations of all sizes.  This focused review, supported by Kineo, Filtered and HT2 Labs, explored the importance of measuring and using data in order to improve learning across businesses, with this brand-new report analysing why it is important to use data effectively, outlining pathways to success and real impact.  

Having the skill to explore and analyse data is one of the highest priorities for future L&D teams as shown by 96% of 700+ L&D professionals from the Towards Maturity annual Health Check, which identifies that data analytics is a skill that will be needed in the next two years. 

“At Kineo we’re delighted to have the chance to support this report, along with our partners at Filtered and HT2 Labs.”, comments Jez Anderson, Head of Consulting for Kineo. “For all of us, data – where it comes from, how we gather it, how we interpret it and how it helps us to serve learners – plays a huge part in the learning and development solutions we deliver for clients.” 

This new report, “L&D’s relationship with data and how to use it effectively”, highlights the four key areas which emerged from the Pulse data.  L&D leaders expect data to help them review and understand business problems, make suggestions that are beneficial at different levels of the business, track problems and enhance the learning experience. 

However, the report also finds that L&D professionals are struggling to understand the data they collect and how it adds value. Clear barriers came through in the responses, such as organisations lacking in-house data skills and an overall lack of knowledge in using the data effectively.  As a result, around one in ten organisations, who on average collect data on 14 areas, never analyse the data they collect.  There are tremendous opportunities for L&D to harness data to continually improve the experience and process of learning across the business.
