Deloitte: L&D Lags Tech Advances

Though traditional employee training is being revolutionized by flipped classrooms, learning-centric models, and other technological advances, most training and development organizations have not kept pace with advances in technology or the evolution toward employee-centered learning, says a recent report by Deloitte.

According to the Deloitte report, more than two-thirds of companies in a global survey see the online learning trend as “urgent” or “important,” yet only six percent believe they have mastered the content and technology capabilities needed to make online learning an accessible tool and a compelling experience for their employees.

The report demonstrates an overall slow adoption of leading edge learning tools:

>>32 percent of respondents say their companies are weak in efficiently managing learning and development operations;

>>38 percent say they are weak in developing a culture of apprenticeship and on-the-job training;

>>63 percent say they are weak in providing social and mobile learning;

>>67 percent say they are weak in using MOOCs;

>>71 percent say they are weak in using advanced media (gaming, video, simulation);
