The purpose of the Learning Effectiveness Indicator™ is to identify important dimensions of Learning Effectiveness.
After an extensive review of literature on adult learning with special focus on learning in managerial roles, a list of Effectiveness Dimensions was generated.

These dimensions are:
Since each individual is a learner, the question remained: If an individual is not Learning Effective, what factors are at play that create a Resistance to Learning Effectiveness? The expert panel agreed that each Effectiveness Dimension existed on a continuum, such that some behaviors created Effectiveness Resistance. These are defined as follows:
