Podcast 51 - How does your L&D function compare with top performers?
Towards Maturity's annual benchmark gives you an opportunity to reflect on your department's achievements, then compares your performance with every other participating organisation. By doing so, you can come up with a plan for where to go next and learn what works for top performers.

You can take part in the Benchmark, now called the Learning Health Check, by visiting: https://emeraldworks.com/research/learning-health-check

The academic paper Ross referenced, on the impact of visualised performance data on learner motivation, was: D., Dawson, S., Siemens, G. 2015 .Let's not forget: Learning analytics are about learningTechTrends, vol 59, no. 1, pp. 64. It's available at: www.research.ed.ac.uk/portal/files/19113410/techtrends2015.pdf
