Learning Executive Confidence Index (LXCI)
The Learning Executive Confidence Index (LXCI)
assesses the expectations of learning executives for the learning function in organizations for the next six months. ATD publishes the LXCI
each year in January (for Q4 of the previous year), April (Q1 of the current year), July (Q2 of the current year), and October (Q3 of the current year).
The LXCI is measured on a 100-point scale, in which a higher index score reflects a more optimistic outlook for the learning function in organizations and a lower index score reflects greater negativity. An index score of more than 50 indicates more positive than negative responses.
The LXCI score is based on learning executives' six-month forecasts for four key indicators:
• the ability of learning executives to meet organizations’ learning needs
• the impact of learning on corporate performance
• the perception of the value of learning within organizations
• the availability of resources needed to meet learning needs.
The LXCI is modeled after the Conference Board Measure of CEO Confidence, which rates CEOs’ expectations for the economy on a quarterly basis.
