There are many reasons why putting people development at the heart of your operations is the most important thing to do.
Meanwhile the business imperative has never been more clear — technological change combined with the challenges of the pandemic have demonstrated a critical need to focus and invest in reskilling and upskilling to ensure your organisation has the capabilities required for future.
Every business has its own set of challenges, goals, talent, and skills — this is the unique skills landscape. There is a fundamental link between the current skills landscape, digital learning maturity, and the future business blueprint for success.
To keep up with these technological and global changes, your organisations skills landscape will need to be nurtured and cultivated to become a real and scalable competitive advantage.
A structured and evidence-based approach towards digital learning maturity is a first step into identifying your organisations blind spots and possible opportunities to accelerate on the journey towards more impact.
What is digital learning maturity?
Digital learning maturity is the ability to align to constantly changing business priorities. The more mature the organisation, the more integrated, scalable, human-centric, and outcomes-focused the digital learning offer is.
Digital learning maturity can be measured with the use of 6 key areas:
Learning experience relating to the interactions end users have with their digital learning platforms and the learners’ emotional reaction or behaviour resulting from the participation of the program or course.
L&D capability referring to L&D’s ability to operate as a strategic partner to support your organisational goals.
The involvement of line managers in the learning process and the learning climate within your organisation.
The level of ownership and engagement felt by learners in their own development.
The learning architecture relating to technical platform configuration and analysed the overall level of integration of the learning environment with the enterprise digital ecosystem.
Learning analytics referring to the techniques and processes that are used to understand the contribution of learning to business performance. This also refers to how data-driven decisions are being made to improve learning strategies and learning outcomes.
Taking a closer look at these 6 key areas can help your organisation to assess their current skills landscape and identify the opportunities to increase the digital learning maturity.
