This research, conducted by Oxford Strategic Consulting and the Chartered Management Institute, looks at the current use of digital technology in management learning and development, the challenges and barriers to its use, and ways to fulfil the potential benefits that digital offers.

It is based on a survey of 1,184 CMI members in June 2015, plus 20 in-depth interviews and case studies.

Key findings include:

  • 97% of managers spent at least one day on e-learning over the previous 12 months.
  • Perhaps surprisingly, older and more senior managers are more likely to prefer digital learning over classroom-based learning.
  • The proportion of people who like self-directed learning is similar to the number who like learning in groups, reflecting the different learning styles that exist in organisations.
  • Only 68% of organisations provide their managers with access to digital learning resources for self-directed learning, and 53% to support formal learning programmes.
  • 59% of managers said management learning and development is closely aligned to their organisation's business strategy. This is higher for more senior managers and smaller organisations.
