Towards Maturity: Excellence in Leadership Development

KPMG has worked with with Towards Maturity, an independent benchmarking organisation, to produce the research report Excellence in Leadership Development.

The report sheds light on what is driving change in leadership development, the benefits of adopting new approaches, the barriers to innovation and the actions L&D teams are taking to address the challenges. It shows although 98% of L&D professionals want their programmes to deliver improved business performance, only 18% are managing to achieve it.

Key Findings from the report:

  • 7 in 10 find web search engines essential/very useful
  • 2 in 5 belong to networks or communities
  • 3 in 5 find face-to-face classroom training essential/very useful
  • Over 7 in 10 are using mobile devices for learning activities

Perspectives from L&D teams:

  • 30% are curating external resources
  • 3 in 10 have no plans to implement social media
  • 92% use classroom courses as part of the formal programme
  • 39% offer mobile content
