This evergreen study was Laura’s first exploration into uncovering how learning innovation delivers business impact. It was one of the first industry studies to involve the voice of the learner, exploring learning from their context and needs.
This early research and analysis looks at how successful organisations built a learning strategy that delivers results by
- Creating firm foundations and understanding learners
- Leveraging manager influence and engagement
- Prioritising holistic learning
- Measuring success and winning hearts and minds
This study was conducted at a time when the word elearning meant something very different from today! Yet the distilled wisdom boxes throughout this report highlight essential ideas that have now become a necessity rather than a nice to know for anyone interested in improving business impact through learning innovation.
Linking Learning to Business was the foundation report that led to the 15 year Towards Maturity Study that now underpins the Mind Tools for Business Learning and Performance Benchmark.
