Learning Execs Optimistic

Learning executives continue to be optimistic about the outlook and expectations for the learning function, according to the latest measurement by the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD).

The Learning Executive Confidence Index (LXCI) for the fourth quarter of 2009 remained stable after significant growth across the second and third quarters. The current LXCI surveyed 271 learning executives about their expectations in four areas: impact on corporate performance; ability to meet learning needs; status as a key strategic component; and availability of resources.

Learning executives revealed plateauing scores in key indices in the fourth quarter, suggesting a continued sense of optimism in most key areas.

The effects of the economy continue to be evident, as a significant majority indicates the current economic conditions will impact the learning function. Conversely, only a small proportion (9.9 percent) of learning execs indicates it will have no impact on the learning function in the next six months.
