What is The LPI Capability Map? 

The Learning & Performance Institute (LPI) Capability Map is a tool that defines the 25 most essential skills for modern, effective and future-ready Learning and Development (L&D) teams.

The map is generated from self-assessment data gathered from learning professionals in 67 countries across 38 industries. The highest skill results on the map show where L&D is succeeding, while the lowest show where it needs attention.

Who is the map for?

The LPI Capability Map is a valuable asset to a number of different individuals and teams who are employed in the workplace learning sector:

  • Individuals: As an individual, the map gives you the ability to assess your current skills and compare them with those of your peers. The LPI Capability Map highlights your strongest areas and shows where you can make improvements.
  • Learning departments and Managers: Assess entire teams to see a broader view of L&D skills. By using the LPI Capability Map  as a heat map, you can pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of the whole department and compare to industry averages.
  • Buyers of learning services: By insisting that external trainers and L&D contractors have been assessed via the map, you can ensure that people with the relevant skills are being deployed to the right projects.
  • Suppliers of learning services: By putting your consultants and contractors through the LPI Capability Map, you’ll strengthen your proposition when tendering for projects.
  • Researchers: The LPI Capability Map is one of the largest views of an L&D professional’s skill set, compared to an industry standard. With the data available, researchers are given a unique insight into the skills held by learning professionals today.
