Solution

With a global workforce of highly mobile consultants, this organization needed to evaluate the market of new learning technologies and identify which platforms would give them strategic advantage.

Impact

After a period of paralysis, the insights of an outside strategy consultancy to help identify the best roadmap enabled the organization to make a selection and move to implementation with a clearly identified roadmap and budget for socialization.

Details

While this strategy firm had identified the guiding themes for their learning and talent development team going forward, the team needed the resources of an experienced outside team who understood the nuances of the market, potential M&A activities, and trends around how learning technology and the HCM market were converging. During this six month engagement, the team guided them through an assessment of their current state, evaluating their maturity across a defined set of organizational competencies, working with stakeholders and learners to identify critical feature sets for future platforms, and identifying a roadmap along with guiding principles to make platform decisions. An RFI/RFP was conducted and the first platform on the roadmap was set to begin implementation at the completion of our landscape analysis.
