Towards Maturity announces new partnership with Elearnity
New partnership to provide L&D departments with resources and toolkits to improve the impact of learning technologies in large organisations was announced at Learning Technologies 2010 today.
Towards Maturity and Elearnity have created a strategic partnership to combine resources and capabilities to accelerate the transformation of large organisations through more effective application of learning technologies.
Large organisations in the private and public sector are under significant pressure to rapidly up-skill new and existing staff, and respond to business demands faster with fewer. Many are turning to learning technologies as part of the answer but have had poor experiences and low take-up. Complex, multisite organisations with multiple decision makers and stakeholders often struggle to leverage the full opportunities that learning technologies can offer.
Over many years, Towards Maturity and Elearnity have built up resources and independent research to identify the activities that influence success in large organisations.
Towards Maturity has focussed on developing a unique e-learning benchmark. The Towards Maturity Model of effective learning technology implementation has been developed as a result of independent research, benchmarking 700 organisations over the past five years. The model identifies six strands of implementation behaviour that consistently deliver more business impact, more staff engagement and more take-up of new learning methods at work.
Elearnity, Europe’s leading Learning Analyst, has been independently researching and analysing the corporate use of learning technologies and other areas of learning innovation since 1996. Based on its extensive research, Elearnity has developed a detailed understanding of corporate learning technology strategies and realities together with an extensive range of supporting analysis and decision tools, independent vendor assessments, and other research materials.
The new partnership will combine capabilities to provide workshops, independent advisory services, toolkits and resources specifically to address the learning technology challenges faced by larger organisations in the public and private sector.
”In 2010, Organisations are taking a closer look at what learning needs to deliver to rapidly changing businesses, and learning innovation needs to accelerate” said David Wilson, Managing Director of Elearnity. “This partnership will help us to support our clients more effectively with the addition of Toward Maturity’s e-learning benchmark capabilities as well as extending the reach of Elearnity’s independent learning technology research and know-how to a broader audience.”
We are thrilled to be working with Elearnity, large organisations face two main barriers to implementing change – reluctance of staff to change and lack of skills of L&D to take advantage of what technology can offer. Through this partnership we can offer independent, practical support for organisations, grounded in years of research and analysis of the corporate market to help them step up to the challenge.
