RALEIGH, N.C. May 12, 2020 — Training is a critical component of corporate strategy and operations, but with fewer than one-fourth of training departments optimizing their processes, many organizations are missing a key competitive advantage.

For the first time, Training Industry Inc. is releasing a report summarizing over a decade of research into the processes and practices of the highest-performing training organizations. This report offers recommendations on how to shift training departments from good to great.

“This research uncovered eight processes that are key to training organization success, chief among them being strategic alignment with business goals,” said Alyssa Kaszycki, learning project manager at Training Industry and the lead author of the report. “By understanding the best practices of high-performing training organizations, we’re able to offer suggestions on how training departments can optimize their capabilities to create lasting business impact.”

The research is based on data gathered from thousands of learning leaders across a range of company sizes and industries. The report shares fresh insights into:

  • The most critical processes for training organization performance.
  • How to improve those critical processes for optimal training department performance.
  • Resources to guide training department structure and practices.

“We are excited to share this report for the first time with the learning and development community,” said Amy DuVernet, Ph.D., CPTM, director of training manager development at Training Industry. “Developing capabilities within the training department is a key focus for L&D. This report offers a roadmap for all L&D professionals to enhance their training function through the strategic use of both internal and external resources.”
