Leadership Development: Into the Workplace

“The classroom” is not included among managers’ top three methods of learning delivery any more. According to unique research by Towards Maturity (which benchmarks learning metrics in the U.K.), managers prefer solutions that delivered learning on-demand.

Learning online can be such an integral part of “doing” that leaders and managers who learn to solve challenges in this way may not consider this traditional “training.” At LMMatters — the U.K.’s partner to Harvard Business Publishing — anecdotal evidence notes that a learning-on-demand approach works. But surprisingly, until now, there has been little or no research into the effectiveness of online leadership and management development — despite the fact that, according to research by Towards Maturity, 50 percent of all leadership and management programs are now e-enabled.

Another groundbreaking research study by Towards Maturity reveals that on-demand is indeed the way that busy managers and executives like to learn. And that learning technologies are enabling leaders and managers to access knowledge immediately, effectively and seamlessly, where and when they need it.

Harvard ManageMentor, the popular resource from Harvard Business Publishing, has been designed to fit around the busy work life of leaders and managers, offering practical help to foster good management skills that can be applied on the job, immediately.

Towards Maturity carried out the independent research: 180 participants contributed to the study, collectively providing development opportunities to more than 35,000 leaders and managers.
