Our Partnership (Why the Partnership?)

The VUCA and agile world coupled with reducing attention span has disrupted the space of learning. This paradigm shift has changed the outlook towards learning engagements – a shift from event-based to learning journeys that are spaced out.

Learning, like everything else today, also needs to be personalized. HR and L&OD professionals have realized that “one-size-fits-all approach” is ineffective in learning.

Strengthscape and Skillsoft’s partnership will help organizations adapt to these strengths. Our offerings complement each other and provide a comprehensive learning solution through blended learning. This approach effectively engages people in a personalised learning journey through different modalities and improves adoption of learning initiatives.
