Case Study

One of the great things about running a business that provides a range of services is that work comes from all directions. One day we might be sourcing contractors, for example, and the next evaluating the ROI of a company-wide initiative. This specialist knowledge means we can often help our clients see a bigger picture, saving them money and helping their projects have a deeper impact. 

Here’s an example. We were recently approached by a long-standing client who needed our help sourcing a team of instructional designers. Our first step was to find out more about the project to make sure we sourced the right people. After establishing that the client was planning to roll out a new company-wide system, we sourced six contractors with the right skills from our stable of IDs. 

However, when we let the client know that we’d found suitable candidates, it turned out that a rethink was needed. Not only was the project rapidly changing shape, but we also began to realise that perhaps the client’s requirements were quite different from what we’d initially imagined. It was time to dig a little deeper.

SavingsA little exploration showed us that a specialist was needed – not just in terms of instructional design, as the project hadn’t yet reached that point – but also in terms of scoping out the work required. We suggested to the client that instead of the proposed team of IDs, we start by bringing onboard an L&D specialist with project management experience who would be able to assess the project with an expert eye and come up with a plan based on their experience. This would save the client money and ensure that when it came to designing the training, the company could be confident that the project had benefited from the attention of a specialist. 

The client agreed, and we placed a specialist PM on board to re-evaluate the project requirements. Their specialist expertise has already got the programme off to a healthy start. It’s also saved the client money and the return on investment of this revised approach was a very healthy 63%.
