This month we report on a useful survey of learning surveys from our friends at Good Practice. The surveys collectively draw on research with over 2,500 learning professionals.
You can download the report through the Good Practice online toolkit.
Good Practice has produced a useful report, which is available from their site. The report covers the following surveys:
- The Learning Survey produced by the Learning and Performance Institute (LPI)

The 10 key findings they draw from these reports are as follows:

- Three quarters of organisations report a deficit in leadership and management skills and leadership development is the hottest topic for learning and development provision
- Talent management systems are focused on high potential employees and senior managers
- Where there is quantitative data, there is evidence that learning technology improves efficiency and outcomes such as speed of delivery, reduced time to competence, and reduced costs
