The Learning Experience Framework (LEF)® illustrates the principles, methodologies & processes required by professionals involved in learning technologies, skills development and workforce planning.

Developed in 2015 the LEF establishes the classification and maturity model for the enterprise learning ecosystem necessary to improve learner experience.

A blueprint for transforming your learning ecosystem

High performing companies have a history of innovation and are valued based on their continued ability to innovate. Learning is the essence of innovation.

Employees share an inherent desire and enthusiasm for learning. Learning leaders recognize this fact and oftentimes struggle to capitalize on it. Leaders also recognize that segregated learning technologies such as the LMS, LXP, LCMS, microsites, etc. tend to constrain employee curiosity and their preference to learn in the flow of work.

Traditional learning solutions lean administratively centric with most development requirements originating from tenured learning administrators seeking a more effective way to deliver, track and report compliance training. Modern learning capabilities are broad in scope and can be best leveraged when integrated to provide a seamless employee experience ranging from third-party content to employee created content using a video platform.

The Learning Experience Framework (LEF) ® provides a blueprint for transforming underwhelming, isolated learning and talent technologies into a cohesive learning ecosystem that promotes and enhances employee curiosity, performance, and workforce agility.

LEF will help you as a learning leader:

  1. Develop and execute holistic learning strategies
  2. Ensure your company has the skills needed to win
  3. Demonstrate ROI and maximize learning budget
  4. Cultivate business partnerships
  5. Create and/or fortify a learning culture

If employee engagement with your organization’s learning capabilities is stodgily based on compliance training and not leading to insights or increased talent mobility . . . and you are exploring a shift in employee learning behavior to that which exceeds a Google search while generating bilateral support of business objectives, the Learning Experience Framework can be your guide.
