Each week Raytheon Professional Services (RPS) will highlight a trending issue with importance to the training industry. These observations are the product of ongoing conversations with customers, analysts and professionals within the business and training communities.
This week’s observation: Financial services companies are in a constant battle to refresh, maintain and develop new curriculum to remain compliant with ever-changing industry regulations. While these are necessary standards, in some cases they can cause unintended difficulty. For companies with policies that require their contingent workforce change every 12-18 months, this can cause inefficiencies with development processes, workload, assimilation of new talent, and more. To help drive consistency in deliverables and performance, companies can look for a training partner to help support the transition, especially when it comes to managing vendors or providing integrated design and development solutions.
