A robust reporting function is a critical component of a learning management system (LMS) or learning experience platform (LXP).
According to a report from EY on the ever-growing importance of L&D on the future of work, “data can be a game changer within the functioning of corporate L&D and help the function earn their spot as a strategic partner.”
Industry analyst Josh Bersin also speaks to the importance of reporting in L&D. In a research paper from 2020 on adaptive learning, Josh states “the depth and ability to continually assess, learn, and act changes the game for how learning departments will operate and make investment decisions. It allows the organization to make faster, better, and more effective decisions.”
