Your Challenge

  • Organizations often have difficulty with increasing internal course participation, measuring training effectiveness, and increasing training accessibility.
  • Processes are often manual, resulting in wasted time and resources and a lack of traceability and visibility between departments.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • A disjointed and departmentalized approach to learning technology will inevitably fail.
  • Ensure you have a holistic learning technology strategy through the necessary convergence of people, process, technology, and content.

Impact and Result

  • Connect a strong learning and development (L&D) strategy with a robust learning technology strategy to increase L&D efficiencies, develop in-house talent, and provide a competitive advantage to organizations.
  • Identify your solution alternatives across people, processes, technology, and content. Create a comprehensive roadmap, prioritizing initiatives and identifying dependencies.

Research & Tools

2. Map current state

Conduct a learning audit, create learner profiles, map learning processes and systems, and identify key systems integrations.

4. Establish governance and evaluate solutions

Determine guiding principles, process owners, and governance, and develop a strategic roadmap for vendor selection.
