At eCom we have the privilege of working with some very progressive organisations as they develop towards a learning culture.
Towards Maturity’s recently released 2015-2016 Industry Benchmark Report discusses the benefits that organisations achieve as they embrace digital technologies and progress through the maturity stages.
From working with our clients we realise that this development process takes time and for many organisations is best achieved in incremental stages, as understanding and skills grow.
We work with a management team to understand where they want to take the organisation over a period of time and develop an online infrastructure to support and manage this process.
Supporting client teams and providing skills and knowledge transfer is key to developing the confidence of managers who are deploying new models.
The Toward’s Maturity report finds that 70% of respondents are still only using technology to deliver learning. Yet to achieve L&D’s aspirations of creating a learning culture, which ultimately improves business performance, organisations will need to embrace new learning models.
We place a high importance on R&D to ensure that we have the right tools to provide clients with comprehensive solutions, which can take them from delivering learning to influencing organisational culture.
To this end, we find the latest Towards Maturity report encouraging. There are clearly many organisations who are preparing to build a digital learning environment. We encourage those starting out on this journey to join us at our client events to see how other organisations are using technologies to realise their aspirations.
At eCom we wholeheartedly agree with the Benchmark Report’s call to action for business leaders:
“Significant business improvement can be achieved through the digital transformation of learning strategies when business leaders demand more than just efficiency. Be clear about the specific business goals, define clear targets, then expect and enable your L&D professionals to achieve them in innovative ways”.
