The View is Worth the Climb

The Deloitte 2016 Global Outsourcing Survey states that cost, enabling core business functions, and solving capacity issues are primary drivers to outsource. It further states that while companies seek innovation from outsourcing agreements, many are unsure how to define, motivate, and track it. In fact, 65% do not currently measure the value created through innovation.

Yet, when it comes to delivering value, whether it is in terms of cost, innovation or business results, for all of our customer journeys, we believe that the view is certainly worth the climb.

If you are unsure about outsourcing, assessing where you are is a great way to get started on your journey of running training like a business.

We have simplified this for you – take our Running Training like a Business survey of 11 questions. This survey will give you a quick assessment of where you are with a free personalized report. You could also follow up on your report with a detailed discussion with our consulting team.

Assessing the Opportunity

If it is self-evident to you that the costs of your learning function are high, or if you need to optimize operations, then you can start considering a roadmap for implementation.

If you are still unsure and would like to take an in-depth look at your L&D function, NIIT can help with either a comprehensive or a service-specific assessment. NIIT works in close partnership with you to assess the current state of the training organization or the service – its desired future state, and the gaps between the two. We then identify recommendations for helping you move to the desired future state with an associated business case.
