Learning Executive Confidence Index (LXCI)

LXCI December 2008: The ASTD Learning Executives Confidence Index (LXCI) for December 2008 was 52.1 based on responses from 115 LXs to an online invitation-only survey, demonstrating that collectively LXs expect their learning functions to remain the same or marginally improve over the next six months (for those unfamiliar with the LXCI, a detailed explanation appears at the end of this report).
