LONDON — July 26, 2021 — Today, Mind Tools for Business’s launch of the new Learning Performance Benchmark demonstrates our commitment to supporting a performance driven learning community of practice.

The Learning Performance Benchmark is a free, independent, and confidential L&D comparison tool, that measures the impact of your organization’s learning strategy and helps you understand the level of learning maturity in your organization.

By completing the Learning Performance Benchmark L&D leaders can accurately benchmark their function’s strategy against peers and reflect on current strategy with gap analysis.
