Key Findings & Highlights

NelsonHall's market analysis of the Learning BPO industry and learning BPO trends consists of 84 pages.

The current learning BPO market continues to grow and is heavily focused on solving specific training needs, while future learning BPO demand will increasingly focus on transforming the learning process to make training more effective and engaging.

Implementing a centralized and standardized training process that supports dispersed workforces and makes training more accessible is the top driver for learning BPO. Cost reduction continues to be an important driver among organizations, followed by accessing best practices and innovations.

Resisting change due to loss of control, lack of buy-in from management, and obtaining the funds to invest in learning BPO are the top barriers to learning BPO.

Selective learning BPO bundles dominate learning BPO activity, accounting for ~80% - 85% of contracts in the last 18 months. Approximately one quarter of learning revenues came from training for the extended enterprise.

Organizations implementing blended learning approaches have higher levels of learner engagement and effectiveness. Delivery modalities continue to evolve to address trends for on demand and just-in-time learning.

In the last 18 months, vendors have been enhancing their learning BPO offerings by improving the learning experience and reducing time to deployment. The main initiative for vendors in the next 12 months is to develop simulations and gamification, and incorporate digital.
