‘The State of Learning & Development: The Struggle with Strategy,’ offers 7 critical calls to action to help organizations link learning initiatives and performance goals

Brandon Hall Group, the leading independent Human Capital Management research/analyst firm, released a new Learning and Development research report today that suggests action steps for organizations to more closely align their learning strategies with corporate performance goals.

The State of Learning & Development: The Struggle with Strategy, summarizes key findings from the 2015 State of Learning and Development Study and includes insights from four other 2015 learning research efforts and offers seven critical calls to action to align learning and business goals. The report also includes a detailed explanation of the firm’s High-Performance Learning & Development Framework.

“Despite its importance and impact, learning strategies seem to be developed in a vacuum,” Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke said. “Only 30% of companies say their learning strategies are highly aligned to business goals. The idea is to develop a strategy that has a direct impact on performance and the bottom line. There is no silver bullet strategy that will solve things for all companies, however, this report lays out a blueprint in the form of our framework that is a great starting point.”

Added author Wentworth, “The report focuses on the people, processes and technology that are integral in developing and sustaining a learning strategy that is tied to business goals and can deliver results. This is a complex process – 96% of survey respondents say they are challenged by it – but we provide in-depth information and insights that can help in knocking down barriers and lead to greater success.”
