“Having a training outsourcing partner like LSA to support our training and development needs has been a real benefit. In an emerging company where typically you can’t afford the infrastructure necessary to provide a full range of development venues to meet the broad needs of an organization, having an external partner who offers everything from a wide range of open enrollment programs to customized organizational development consulting is almost as good (and in some cases better than) having your own internal Training and Organizational Development function.”
Chris Wells | VP Human Resources and IT | Xoma

“For our go to training outsourcing and consulting partner, LSA provides exactly what we want. As always, they deliver outstanding work!”
Elizabeth Siebert | Director, Organizational Excellence | Intuit

Now, more than ever, leading organizations see the value in leveraging training outsourcing services and solutions for all or significant portions of their learning and development functions.

According to a recent study, two-thirds of Fortune 1000 companies are currently outsourcing some of their HR function. Our research indicates the number of companies outsourcing their training functions will continue to increase as executives face pressure to:

  • Reduce and control training costs
  • Create a variable cost structure
  • Gain access to training best practice processes and learning technology
  • Take advantage of training best practice expertise that they do not have and cannot effectively build internally
  • Focus solely on their own core competencies
  • Increase the business value from their investment in training
  • Create a single point of accountability and responsibility for training
  • Increase quality of training solutions
  • Reduce training risks
  • Accelerate business results

Following Training Outsourcing Best Practices and Training and Development Best Practices, LSA Global has been delivering training outsourcing services and solutions for over a decade.

From managing entire training functions or initiatives to sourcing, designing, delivering, and evaluating a single eLearning or Instructor-Led workshop, we tailor each training outsourcing service and solution to meet the specific business needs of our clients.

Representative outsourced training services include:

  • Training Needs Assessment and Planning
    Determine the current situation, the desired state, and a learning plan linked to the business strategy to achieve your goals using proprietary, research-based tools and models.
  • Solution Sourcing
    Solution identification, qualification, contracting, negotiations, management, auditing, and certification. Similar to an all-star game, only 10% of potential resources pass our high quality vetting process.
  • LMS Lite – Training Marketing, Registration and Reinforcement System
    A customized Learning Communication and Registration System to help clients manage the marketing, registration, planning, scheduling, delivery, resource allocation, reinforcement, and results of learning solutions without the hassles associated with a cumbersome LMS.
  • MicroLearning Library
    Get access to research-backed sales and leadership microlearning libraries with over 200 videos, articles, job aids, facilitation guides, and quizzes that focus on competencies that matter most.
  • Solution Implementation and Training Measurement
    Design the most effective solutions for maximum impact (quality and return) and deliver to the right target audience in the most efficient (cost and time) manner.
  • Administrative Support
    Reporting, logistics, tracking, and administration so that participants can focus on learning and your internal resources can focus on adding value.

This is exactly what we needed to get to the next level.

The action-learning leadership project has been very beneficial to me, our leadership team, and the entire organization. The balance of development and results has been excellent. We have made huge progress, and I was also able to identify 2-3 high potentials while having the extra benefit of people stepping up to carry key strategic projects forward. The experience was better than anticipated.  I could not be more pleased.

Thank you for a great leadership development session today. The facilitator was brilliant. The team got a lot out of it (as did I).

LSA’s executive coach based his approach on understanding our business circumstances and strategy, as well as our leadership aspirations. The customized coaching covered all aspects of leadership; it was not simply a touchy-feely endeavor. In fact, the focus on clear business outcomes and real life circumstances challenged me to develop my thinking and actions related to leading the business.”

We recently hired LSA to help us take our client delivery methodology to the next level as we continue to grow and help our clients succeed. The custom strategy and design session exceeded our expectations. They really understood our business and delivered within tight time frames.  They were the best I have seen for this type of complex, visible, and strategic work. LSA’s ability to get a group of 20+ executives from around the globe on the same page, push their thinking to new heights, and ensure an executable plan was excellent. I would recommend LSA to anyone looking to take their strategy and strategic execution to the next level.

The LSA customized Organizational Alignment Survey gave us a comprehensive view of how our employees experience our culture, talent and strategy.  Equally important, the survey and implementation process goes well beyond the typical engagement survey.  The systemic approach provided us with a great forum to discuss the strengths and opportunities in our organization, and then to quickly get focused on the key actions critical to executing our business and people strategies.

LSA was very thorough during all phases of our customer service strategy process: the pre-meeting, the meeting and post-meeting. Their time spent with management and our employees went very well. LSA’s write-up of what was said was very insightful. Their suggestions for the future were also very valuable. I can’t think of any phase of the process that wasn’t first class.

As a high growth digital marketing agency with cutting edge talent, we hired LSA Global to help clarify our strategy and work with our executive leadership team to help implement strategic changes in a way that made sense for our unique culture. The work was so successful that we also hired them to coach our key leaders. LSA has been instrumental in helping us transition to a new leadership team and triple revenue. In this age of useless consultants, I highly recommend their practical and business-oriented approach to strategy, culture, and talent.
