Learning Delivery

Global challenges need global solutions

As the need for fast, efficient organisational learning increases, learning and development (L&D) teams are continually challenged to do more with less. Learning and development (L&D) teams must also compete for limited resources as external pressures compel organisations to focus attention on core competencies.

In such an environment, learning and development (L&D) budgets often get cut. Critical learning initiatives get put on the back burner. The development of new learning delivery processes shuts down. In many organisations, learning loses the attention of senior leaders – whose support is essential for effective learning to take place – and its importance as a strategic objective.

Structure and optimise your learning and development (L&D)

When faced with market disruptions, focusing on core competencies that no longer align with new market realities may no longer provide the solution. Even when senior leadership supports organisational learning as a strategic priority, global learning presents many challenges.

  • Multi-generational workforces with different learning preferences
  • Introduction of new learning technologies with steep learning curves
  • Local learning goals not aligned with global objectives
  • Difficulty in measuring learning results and Return on Investment (ROI)
  • Lack of expertise, skills and staff to deliver learning around the globe

For many organisations, the solution lies in outsourced learning services tailored to the organisation and its workforce.

Global resources, local results

GP Strategies has the global resources and expertise to deliver cost-effective learning and development (L&D) solutions that sync with your global, regional, and local business objectives. Our broad spectrum of managed learning delivery services ensure the completion of critical learning and development (L&D) projects on time and on budget anywhere you work. Our many-faceted learning and training delivery methods include:

  1. Training coordination

    Link your learning strategy to a global deployment model that delivers cost-effective, high-performing, and consistent learning delivery. We ensure a positive Return on Investment (ROI) with built-in quality checks, programme management and evaluation, and digital tools for fast, efficient tracking, reporting, and billing.

  2. Instructor sourcing and management

    Our global instructor network includes some of the top learning professionals in the world, and allows us to select from hundreds of internal and external instructor resources to meet your training delivery needs. Our efficient instructor management and learning administration system ensures uniformity of quality in the recruitment, certification, and evaluation processes.

  3. Content design and curation

    Content curation sets the tone for effective learning. Yet, organisations often cut corners when acquiring or developing learning content. Using leading-edge curation practices, such as virtual instructor-led training (VILT), we deliver custom content solutions that create a more interactive and visual approach to content design and improve the effectiveness of your learning.

  4. Performance-centric approach

    Effective learning depends on expertly curated content, but quality of content does not guarantee the results you want. Incorporating the best elements of ADDIE – analysis, design, development, implementation, results – we shift your organisation from training-centric learning to a performance-centric model for optimal results.

  5. Mobile learning strategies

    With today’s increasingly mobile workforce, learning needs to take place when and where people can access it. Our mobile learning strategies use technology to shift the focus from live events to more blended solutions that make learning on the go accessible and effective.

  6. Virtual learning

    Organisations often have learning scenarios that cannot be taught in the real world due to prohibitive costs or unacceptable risks. Our Virtual Reality (VR) solutions shatter these limitations by supporting you in the design and production of 'impossible' scenarios that deliver a new level of learning.

  7. Onsite support

    Our global service delivery centres in the Americas, Europe, and Asia blend in-region and local resources with remote, on, or offshore teams to deliver eLearning solutions that fit your and achieve business results.

  8. Measurement and evaluation

    Measured learning results and a good Return on Investment (ROI) will get the attention of senior leadership every time. Our learning experts partner with you to design and implement measurement strategies to assess the efficacy of your global learning programme, identify opportunities for improvement, and demonstrate learning and development (L&D)’s value to the organisation.
