Welcome to the 2017 Towards Maturity Benchmark
The Towards Maturity Benchmark™ enables people professionals to confidentially review their technology-enabled learning strategy, compare their approach with top performing organisations and establish priorities with personalised results.

Our Benchmark is considered one of the most comprehensive independent reviews of how organisations are establishing successful learning strategies in the workplace. Until 31 July, the Towards Maturity Benchmark is free for all learning professionals around the globe – complete a review to receive a free Personalised Benchmark Report (£300 value).

The benefits of benchmarking
Benchmarking can help you bring lasting change, faster. It identifies the priority actions that will work for you and the tactics that need to be implemented or improved. You'll receive a free Personalised Benchmark Report,  which will score you on a variety of performance improvement benchmarks and includes insights to help you improve business alignment, increase learner engagement and make informed decisions about new models of learning, like 70:20:10.

Completion time
Benchmarking is a reflective process - a comprehensive review of your learning strategy. The Towards Maturity Benchmark should take around 30-40 minutes of your time; more if it is done as a team. If you don't have the answers to hand, or cannot answer a particular question, just leave it blank and skip to the next question, or come back to it later.

If you need to leave before you're finished
If you have to stop at any point, make sure to finish the page your in and click "Save for later." This will prompt you to enter your email address so that we can send you a personal link. Once you are ready to resume your review, just click on the link we sent you.
