Benchmarking with Towards Maturity

The Towards Maturity Benchmark™ equips L&D teams with all the evidence they need to modernise learning provision.

The Towards Maturity Benchmark™ enables L&D professionals to review their current technology-enabled learning strategy, compare their approach directly with top learning companies and set priority actions with their personalised report – helping them deliver peak performance.

The Towards Maturity Benchmark™ is considered one of the most comprehensive independent reviews of how organisations are establishing successful learning strategies in the workplace.

Why benchmark?

Benchmarking is the process of comparing key performance indicators for one organisation with the indicators of others who are considered to represent the industry standard or best practice for that field. Businesses have been benchmarking since the early 90’s to develop new strategic direction and to improve performance.

Since 2003, Towards Maturity has been applying best practice benchmark principles to help L&D departments do the same. The Towards Maturity Benchmark™ considers how organisations are e-enabling their learning strategies to meet changing business skills needs and also reviews changes in use of technology, drivers and results, barriers and the implementation practices that directly correlate to results.

The Towards Maturity Model

Since our research began in 2003, we have identified six workstreams of effective practices which improve learning innovation and its impact on business. These six workstreams, known as the Towards Maturity Model™, form the basis of our benchmark process and are reviewed every year.

In 2010, the Towards Maturity Index (TMI) was developed as a single benchmark of implementation maturity across the six work streams. It is designed to help organisations understand and improve the health of their learning strategy.
