Summary of Embracing Change
Improving Performance of Business, Individuals and the L&D Team. 2015–16 Towards Maturity Industry Benchmark Report
Towards Maturity, 2015
The technology that supports Learning and Development (L&D) – and its internal customers – changes rapidly. But as a profession, L&D remains much the same.
Since 2003, the business research group Towards Maturity has conducted extensive, high-quality studies on the most up-to-date learning practices and trends for organizations. Towards Maturity’s “2015 Industry Benchmark Report” is based on extensive research involving more than 600 people, two-thirds of whom are Learning and Development (L&D) leaders. It includes insights and information from Towards Maturity’s “Learning Landscape” study on self-learning, which involves more than 1,600 people. The report, directed to informed industry insiders, does suffer a bit from jargon and some inconsistency. Setting that aside, it provides valuable information that is not available from any other source. getAbstract recommends this report’s highly practical and applicable insights to chief learning officers who are determined to drive positive change in their organizations, and to forward-looking L&D professionals and business leaders.
In this summary, you will learn
- How Learning and Development (L&D) professionals describe the state of their profession
- What the “Towards Maturity Model” is
- What activities support superior L&D practice
- What actions characterize “Top Deck” L&D
