The answer is out there… or is it? Learning solutions can come in all sizes and shapes and additionally they can come from inside or outside one’s organization. The decision-making process to determine if one should allocate time, money and resources to build a solution or look outside and vet potential 3rd party options can be daunting. But is there a hybrid option to be considered or maybe the solution is looking you right in the face from the learners themselves?
