Managed Learning Services is a rapidly growing business trend that seeks to leverage hosted learning technologies with outsourced training services. The goal isn’t to eliminate the training department—just the time, effort and expense it takes to operate one.

In this 1-hour virtual session, Josh Bersin, founder and president of e-learning research firm Bersin & Associates, will address:

  • The strategic drivers for organizations that wholly or partially outsource training functions. What are the benefits vs. any drawbacks?
  • What could you outsource vs. what should you keep internal and strategic?
  • An overview of the most commonly outsourced functions: 1) technology and technology operations, 2) learning content services, 3) implementation services, and 4) back office administration.
  • Best practices from leading organizations that have made the decision to outsource some or all of their training processes.
“The Managed Learning Services model means organizations can wholly or partially outsource the technical and administrative functions of their training operations,” said Mike Morrison, senior vice president of professional services at GeoLearning. “Some of the benefits to clients that we will be covering in the session include reduced costs, establishing a sharper focus on their own core competencies, and increasing the strategic orientation of staff and resources.”
