Q. how do I find data for training and development budgets

Budget for 450 – 500 employees
Research on what technology and media companies are spending in development and delivery for each department
Research on the elements and budgets people have for courses per year
How much should we spend on developing trainings – hosting lunch and learns, traveling to deliver trainings, hosting conferences
Is it faster, cheaper, and better to bring in training from the outside?
My questions about the budget portion so far…
Where to find case studies and/or bench marks?
