2013 Towards Maturity Benchmark

Towards Maturity 2013This post first appeared on the LINE blog on Jun 13th 2013.

We are proud to be Founding Ambassadors of Towards Maturity and to be supporting the 2013 Benchmark Survey.

In its 10th year, the study has identified a real trend towards benchmarking, with a record 500 organisations across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors participating in the 2012 study. Participants among European, US, Middle East and Asia Pacific companies also increased.

The Towards Maturity Benchmark study provides a unique opportunity for organisations to review their current approach to learning, compare their progress with peers and to use this information to take action to improve performance. An astonishing 73% of participants reported that just taking part in the benchmark had given them new ideas to improve the impact of their learning services.

Taking part in the confidential 2013 Benchmark Study is easy; it takes between forty minutes to an hour to review an organisation’s approach to learning using the online survey. All early participants will get their free personalised Benchmark report in August (valued at £300).

Within the personalised Benchmark report available to each participant of the study, is their organisation’s unique Towards Maturity Index (TMI) – the measurement of how mature an organisation’s learning technology implementation is and, more importantly, how to improve it – Companies in the top quartile of the TMI scale engage twice the audience, save an additional 33% of cost and 50% in reduced study time. Their staff also reach proven competency 6 times faster as a result of using learning technologies.*

Laura Overton, Managing Director of Towards Maturity said, “Today’s L&D departments are under pressure to transform the way that they support learning and performance at work but have little time to stop and reflect on how they are going to achieve this. The Towards Maturity Benchmark provides the opportunity to fast-track their way to success. The independent evidence it provides, of both progress and opportunities to improve, is essential for any learning leader looking to be at the top of their game.”
