Organizations continue to struggle with developing a solid learning and development strategy that makes a genuine impact on the business. This challenge leaves many companies without the guidance necessary to design, develop, and deliver effective learning programs to boost not only individual performance, but organizational performance, as well. According to the Learning Strategy Survey, 17 percent of companies overall say they have no L&D strategy whatsoever.
Only 6% of companies say their L&D strategy is very effective in helping achieve business goals. That’s less than the amount saying their strategy is completely ineffective. This becomes less surprising when we see that only 41% of companies report their learning strategy is linked to the business, or we what we consider to be Levels 3 and 4 of our Learning Strategy Impact Model.
The 2018 Learning Strategy Survey gathered 333 responses representing individuals from 33 countries and more than 36 different industries. The data was collected in December 2017.
