Organizations budget on average more than $130 billion annually for formal corporate leadership development activities. However, the unfortunate reality is that learning and development at many organizations fails to deliver the intended results. Research shows that less than 20 percent of all programs have influence on job performance. When it comes to bottom-line impact, the results are even worse.
Through BTS’s approach, learning and development becomes a source of strategic differ-entiation and competitive advantage. Corporations can drive job performance improve-ments, strategic priorities and business impact by adopting Learning and Execution Journeys -- a series of engaging, business simulation-based learning experiences leveraging leader involvement. The programs are linked to the company’s broader strategic objectives, cus-tomized to the individual and company’s business needs and scalable to meet a global audi-ence.
BTS Founder and CEO, Henrik Ekelund notes, “The challenges inherent in deploying effective leadership development programs are numerous. To maximize impact, corporations can effectively link learning to performance, strategy execution, and the bottom line by adopt-ing Learning and Execution Journeys.”
