Have you ever felt like the influx and outflow of L&D demand is like riding a rollercoaster? Managing the unpredictability of L&D projects is a critical part of leading an L&D team. Workloads and demands on your team frequently oscillate based on moving deadlines and expanding project scopes. Relying solely on in-house resources is wasteful during slower times, and can’t meet demand during busier times? Fortunately, there’s a way to even out those ups and downs. Imagine being able to align your resources with your ever-changing needs, ensuring costs stay predictable, with flexibility to effortlessly scale your operations up or down, adapting to whatever curveballs the business world throws your way.
The fixed-only pricing model gives rise to significant challenges:
- It is difficult for L&D teams to determine up-front which services will be needed for a given project.
- If services are scoped for a project but not used, this wastes money as you are under-utilizing resources for which you still need to pay.
- If specific services are not scoped for a project but are needed once the project is underway, L&D teams need to revisit the contracting and approval process to add new resources.
