What standard?

If I’m better tomorrow than I am today my performance will have improved in relative terms. If my performance is still below the expectations of the business, it’s not improved in absolute terms.

Knowing whether to measure to absolute or relative standards is important. Your business is likely to want absolutes; if you can only show relative improvement, you’ll find demonstrating the value of your learning function much more difficult.
