The automotive sector, like many others, is under pressure to achieve more with less and is looking to technology-enabled learning for help. This means working smarter, targeting training where it can deliver most value, and ensuring no-one is being held back for lack of access to the appropriate resources.
This independent study has been designed to support L&D teams in the automotive sector who are on this journey.

This study was commissioned by Raytheon Professional Services and carried out by Towards Maturity, a not-for-profit benchmarking practice, building on their benchmark research over the last ten years with over 2,900 organisations.
Automotive OEMS were invited to take part in the summer of 2013. A total of 52 respondents took part in the online study representing 44 manufacturing organisations from 19 nations. 76% of those who took part were senior managers in HR or Learning and Development.
Delivering bottom line results
When compared to other participants in the 2013-14 Towards Maturity Benchmark study, we found that the sector enjoys above-average budgets of 5m Euros for learning and development. It also e-enables more formal learning (33% vs 26% on average) and spends more than most on each hour of e-learning content.
The sector is also more likely to report that they are realising the benefits that they hope for with 73% of the Automotive Participants agreeing that learning technologies are helping them to implement business processes and products (vs 47% on average).
Expectations for the future are buoyant with many anticipating an increase in overall training budget. 25% of their L&D budget is spent on technology (20% across the private sector as a whole) and this proportion increases year-on-year.
