Manage Training Outcomes

Creating change in an organization of any size can be difficult. We know that real life happens, which is why we built Training Plans to help enterprises meet their training goals.

  • Assign training to teams by role, function, or in preparation for a project
  • Get notifications, nudges, and progress reporting to keep your program on track
  • See who’s on track and how skills are improving
  • Choose from dozens of role-based Training Plans or build your own

 

Turns out, assigning a Training Plan quadruples the likelihood that training gets done on time.
