In Focus: Beyond Blending

Nov 29, 2018 | Featured, General, In-Focus Reports, Research

With 54% of learning still being conducted solely in the classroom and only 37% or organisations improving the effectiveness of their face-to-face training, something needs to change in order for formal learning to remain effective.

About this report

Right now, L&D is facing a dichotomy between formal learning and the desire for increased accessibility and availability. The only way for face-to-face learning to continue to have an impact is to adapt. Beyond Blending, supported by ambassadors Raytheon Professional Services, explores how organisations that improve their formal learning are doing blended learning well by integrating technology into the very fabric of their formal learning design. This report seeks to go beyond simply suggesting a ‘blended’ approach, but rather looks at how L&D can embrace technology as a supplement to classroom learning in a manner that helps: improve choice, increase learning transfer, encourages engagement and establishes insight.

Drawing our conclusion from over 700 L&D professionals, more than 10,000 learners and verbal contributions from L&D professionals around Europe who participated in Raytheon’s symposiums, we have uncovered the most effective steps for you to improve your formal learning programmes.

Covered in this report

This brand-new report uncovers new insight into the most effective ways to improve formal learning by exploring what successful organisations are doing differently. As a result we explore how, using technology, successful organisations best:

  • Improve choices
  • Improve transfer
  • Improve engagement
  • Improve insight

Data for this report is drawn from:

  • The Towards Maturity 2017 Health Check Study research with over 600 L&D leaders, reported in The Transformation Curve, which is free to download thanks to the support of Towards Maturity Ambassadors.
  • L&D professionals around Europe who participated in Raytheon’s symposiums in London and Munich in September 2018.

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.
