CLO Business Intelligence Report 2007 available

Chief Learning Officer magazine has published its 2007 CLO Business Intelligence Industry Report, based on a survey among almost 2000 professionals in the Business Intelligence Board. The executive summary is available for free at their web site, the full report is paying.

Some numbers out of the summary I stumbled upon:

  • There is more spending for learning and development. The increase averages 10-15%. The strongest spending growth is among small companies. Spending goes a.o. to leadership development and learning technologies.
  • Classroom is the major delivery format, but its share decreases a bit and that of elearning increases a bit.
  • Only 20% of companies track informal learning and only 8% have a strategy for it. More than half of companies expect to increase support for informal learning.
  • Talent Management is on the rise.
  • Learning functions look at their staffing, most are understaffed. Also outsourcing rises slighlty.
  • In general, CLOs are more optimistic than a year ago.
