We can help you make informed decisions, faster.

In today’s world, the demand is to turn data into insights and insights into action, quickly, to be effective. The Towards Maturity Research programme is the most comprehensive review of learning innovation in the workplace, gathering data from over 3,500 organisations and 15,000 learners since 2003. We have used this data to identify 21 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that make effective benchmarking possible.

What is benchmarking? Why should I do it?

Benchmarking is the process of comparing one's business processes and performance metrics to best practices from other industries.

Organisations then develop plans on how to make improvements or adapt specific best practices to increase performance within an organisation or in key areas of the business environment. To be effective, it must become an on-going, integral part of an improvement process with the goal of keeping abreast of ever-improving best practice.

Towards Maturity is a benchmarking practice that provides independent, authoritative research and expert advice to help assess and improve the effectiveness and consistency of L&D performance within organisations.

Our consultants bring their expertise and knowledge to make that happen so you can deliver results faster.  Whether you are a single L&D department providing a central service or a global multi-business unit organisations looking to create an internal benchmark as well as comparing externally.
