ASTD Research has released its Learning Executive Confidence Index for the second quarter of 2010. 257 learning executives (LXs) responded to an online invitation-only survey, contributing to a Q2 LXCI of 62.0. This is a 1.0 point increase from the Q1 LXCI of 61.0, and is the highest value on record, indicating increasing optimism in the performance of the learning function. Highlights from the report include:

  • The overall LXCI for Q2 2010 was 62.0, reaching its highest value to date. This demonstrates that collectively LXs expect their learning functions to improve slightly over the next six months.

  • Expectations for outsourcing on external services that aid in the learning function showed minor changes in Q2, with an increasing number of LXs foreseeing a continuation of the status quo or an increase in outsourcing.

  • More than seven in ten LXs anticipated WLP funding to increase or remain the same in the next six months, similar to Q1.

  • A majority of LXs who anticipated a decrease in their learning expenditures over the next six months predicted an improvement in their organization's WLP expenditure from Q1 2012 onwards.
