The Transformation Journey – 2019 Annual Research Report

Feb 14, 2019 | Annual Benchmark Reports, Featured, General, Research

This annual report directly follows the publication of The Transformation Curve: The L&D journey to deliver lasting business impact, released in January 2018.  Here we discuss barriers in L&D’s transformation journey from the left to the right of the curve.

This year marks Towards Maturity’s 15th anniversary, over which time our research programme has gathered longitudinal evidence from all stakeholders in the learning process; allowing participants to understand how decisions in the past have affected the present, and to make informed recommendations for the future.

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.
