“Corporate learning organizations have to continually re-invent themselves to keep up with changes in the business climate, workforce demographics, technologies, and organizational needs,” said Josh Bersin, president. “After studying this market for more than five years, we see that the best practices, disciplines, technologies, and strategies for today’s high-impact corporate training have dramatically changed.”
The study, an update of the company’s groundbreaking 2005 study on the topic – and the most widely referenced study in the company’s history, is based on a survey of more than 750 learning executives, approximately 100 in-depth interviews with senior learning leaders, and three years of extensive research.
In 350-plus pages, the research study discusses trends, best practices, and solutions to the key issues facing today’s corporate training: organizational structure, business alignment, leadership, governance, program measurement, learning architectures, integration with talent management, outsourcing, globalization, and the multi-generational workforce. In addition, this research provides valuable in-depth analysis and case studies on the implementation of collaborative learning, e-learning, content management, content re-use, and learning on-demand.
Bersin & Associates will be issuing a series of news advisories in coming weeks to highlight research and analysis from the study. For an audio overview, go to http://www.bersin.com/hilo-overview.
