What does the review cover?
We first ask for demographic information such as: organization size, geographic spread and industry. This enables us to build your personalized results and means we can accurately benchmark your L&D strategy against organizations similar to you.
It is then divided into four parts exploring: vision, resources and impact; strategy in practice and culture; technology, tools and access and finally looking at challenges preventing you from getting the most out of your L&D strategy.
How does it work?
There are two main sections. Firstly, a four-part review. Giving you time to reflect on your strategy, shed light on any gaps and identify opportunities for the future.
Then, when your review is complete, you’ll get instant personalized results showing your learning maturity score. As well as clear benchmarks of where your results sit against your peers.
How long does the review take to complete?
Roughly 60 minutes.
Does the review have to be completed in one sitting?
No, participants can save their progress and complete it later.
What data can I expect to see in my results?
A clear, dashboard break-down displaying your learning maturity score, learning maturity stage, six key components (Strategic and business alignment, Employee experience, Environment, Talent and culture, L&D team capabilities, Organizational engagement and Learning impact) and overall benchmark participant trends.
Each page includes interactive graphs with the ability to filter by industry, region, and organization size. As well as insights on how to progress to higher maturity, including links to further reading.
How is my learning maturity score calculated?
Your score is an aggregate of 96 strategic behaviors, measured on a scale of 1–100. It tracks the overall health of your organization's learning strategy, and establishes a baseline for the coming year. In this way, your score indicates not only the impact of your L&D strategy in practice, but also the extent of your digital innovation, and how well your organization is embedding behavioral change.
The learning maturity score has a positive relationship to the four strategic levers of business: Growth, Transformation, Productivity and Profitability.
