Towards Maturity to launch ground breaking research to help learning professionals accelerate and activate change

Feb 10, 2019 | Articles, General, Press Release

Towards Maturity is set to release its 15th annual report, The Transformation Journey, at 5:30pm on 13th February at Learning Technologies 2019, providing powerful new evidence to help learning leaders establish strong foundations for delivering business impact.

For 15 years, Towards Maturity has succeeded in bringing together more than 7,500 learning professionals and 50,000 learners across 55 countries to explore how learning innovation can contribute to business impact. Since 2004, the resulting insights have shown how learning innovation can directly impact four key business measures: growth, transformation, productivity and profitability.

Key findings from the report will be exclusively revealed with their strategic Partner, Learning Technologies UK at their flagship London Event at 5pm on 13 February, by Laura Overton, founder of Towards Maturity and author of the report.

“Today’s learning professionals are battling with delivering learning solutions whilst trying to also prepare for an uncertain tomorrow”, says Laura, “This fresh look at the latest data has addressed their key concerns by highlighting practical new insights to support learning leaders prepare for and accelerate impact.”

Towards Maturity has worked with a community of ambassadors, relevant membership bodies, industry experts, corporate organizations and not-for-profits to shape and participate in this ground-breaking programme of industry research.

Jane Daly, Chief Insights Officer at Towards Maturity who will be co-presenting the results comments, “It’s really interesting to see what’s holding organisations back from developing a high performing learning culture. The new report will explore the biggest barriers to learning transformation: digital disruption, cultural resistance and L&D readiness. With 29% of learning leaders feeling overwhelmed and under-skilled to address the future, this new report will equip them for the next stage of their transformation journey. Attendees at the Learning Technologies show can explore the new research in a number of ways:

  • Attendees at the Learning Technology conference and exhibition can register to attend the launch at 5.30pm 13th February at London Excel and be the first to receive an exclusive print copy of the new findings.
  • Laura and Jane will also be presenting the findings on Day 2 of the conference in the Exhibition at 16:15-16:45.
  • Join Laura in an exclusive conversation about the findings at the LT exchanges at 2pm on Stand K55.  Registration is available to save a place.
