Designing & delivering classroom training 29% 62% 8% 1% 8
Creating online courses and resources 14% 48% 30% 8% 6
Running webinars and online training sessions 17% 60% 20% 3% 7

Helping individuals learn from their daily work 4% 14% 54% 28% 3
Helping individuals become independent continuous learners 1% 12% 53% 34% 1

What these results show is that L&D respondents would like, in 2019 to spend

  • LESS time on designing and delivering classroom training AND creating content and online courses
  • a little MORE time on running live virtual training AND curating content and web opportunities
  • much MORE time on helping managers develop their teams AND helping individuals learn from daily work ND share their knowledge experience
  • with the MOST significant increase in time being spent at helping individuals becoming independent continuous learners – which becomes the No 1 priority for 2019

There is therefore a clear recognition of a need for change. Whilst carrying out some training activities is inevitable, there is now increasing interest in enabling and supporting learning in many other ways across the organisation. But what does this actually mean in practice? Find out on the next page.
