Adaptive Learning Organizations

Why do adaptive learning organizations spend less time and resources on L&D and deliver more value?

Adaptive Learning Organizations

Over years the ability to adapt to an everchanging landscape of business and talent priorities has been key to L&D's success. In 2020, NIIT's Consulting Team and Josh Bersin Academy conducted this research on Adaptive Learning Organizations which involved in-depth conversations and surveys with more than 100 large, global companies.

We found that Adaptive Learning Organizations are leading in three critical areas, the ability to sense and analyze external and internal market changes, decide and lead quickly on the right direction, programs, and resources, and evolve and transform their ability to deliver advanced business-centric and personalized learning solutions.
