Executive Summary: Learning – The Foundation for Agility and Sustainable Performance

Ninety six percent (96%) of respondents to a recent CRF survey believe that an organisation’s capacity for learning can be a source of competitive advantage. And yet surveys consistently show that the proportion of business leaders who are satisfied with their Learning function’s performance remains stuck at around 20%. Learning should play a leading role in enabling growth and building capacity for innovation and change. However, CRF’s research has found that the Learning function is often underpowered, lacking business credibility and struggling to show how its activities improve business performance.

This executive summary provides overview of the research. The full research report is available to CRF members only. Should you wish to find out more about the research, please contact Harry Cloke, Business Development Executive on harry@crforum.co.uk. Alternatively, please call our offices on +44 (0) 2034572640.
