Internal or External Consultants: How the Best Learning Managers Make the Critical Choice to Stay Inside or Go Outside 

Program Description:


Many companies reach a point where they need outside help to grow their business. In such cases, they often turn to consultants who bring with them a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and skills. But how do those companies select the right consultant? What criteria do they use to evaluate their choices? What does it take to seal the deal with so many competitors potentially vying for the same piece of business? 

Find out the answers to these questions – and many more – from an esteemed panel of learning and development executives at our October Monthly Chapter Meeting event. You’ll learn why they opt to outsource a project versus keeping it “in house” and what they look for in an outside consultant. They’ll share the lessons and insights they’ve learned along the way to help you make the right decision for your business.
