Leadership development is the top priority for L&D teams over the next 12 months according to a new survey from Video Arts, in the UK.
417 learning and development professionals were asked about the training they plan to provide over the next year.
61% of respondents identified Leadership Development as something they intend to provide.
Other key priorities for learning revealed by the survey are people management, coaching, teamwork, customer service, time management, and change management, how it is delivered and their plans for the future. The survey also highlighted that classroom learning will continue to be the most popular form of training delivery: Classroom training, used by 90% of organizations, remains the most popular form of delivery.
The survey also revealed that 79% of learning and development teams use video as part of classroom-based training courses; 50% provide short pieces of bite-sized learning; and mobile learning is a small, but growing component of training.
“Although the take-up is still relatively small, mobile learning is the fastest growing medium for training,” said Martin Addison, CEO of Video Arts. “This reflects the interest in learning on-the-move, using hand-held devices such as smartphones and tablets. L&D teams are predominantly using m-learning to reinforce the messages from classroom training or e-learning.” (Source, PRLOG)
