12 Reasons Why HR and Learning Professionals Love DDI Subscriptions
1. Cost-Effective Solution
Unlike buying individual courses one at a time, subscriptions are an easier, cost-effective way to buy development—while offering leaders a great deal more. Instantly get access to everything you need to quickly get started with digital and live learning.
2. Award-Winning Content to Meet Challenges
New challenges arise for leaders every day. And leaders experience different challenges in every role and at every level. Our award-winning content supports leaders across a wide range of circumstances, helping you acknowledge and support diverse learning needs. You can trust our content because it is based on decades of scientific research and is proven to deliver results.
3. Strategic Learning Team
Many HR teams must achieve a lot with limited time and resources. With a DDI subscription, you don’t have to do it alone. When you partner with us, you get the unwavering support of expert consultants who have worked through challenges similar to yours and can offer new perspectives.
Think of the DDI Strategic Learning Team as an extension of your own team, by your side to ensure successful implementation from start to finish. Strategic Learning Teams can help you choose competency models, build learning journeys, measure impact, and reach new heights in your leadership development. Your success is their success.
4. A Common Leadership Language
Many L&D teams struggle to create a consistent leadership culture. Every leader has a different background and approach to leadership. Making matters more difficult, leadership development programs are often disjointed or leave leaders to figure it out themselves using an online learning library. Without guidance or alignment, every leader ends up on a different path than their peers.
A subscription can help you build a consistent leadership culture across all roles and levels. Our scalable content builds on key concepts so every leader in your organization knows the shared leadership behaviors they should model and positively reinforce among their peers.
5. Agile Implementation
With a DDI subscription, you can see value fast. Engage leaders quickly with personalized digital learning—all while your Strategic Learning Team helps you strategize larger, in-person learning programs behind the scenes. They’ll help you launch your leadership program fast, providing you with customizable, ready-to-use materials to get your learners and stakeholders excited to embark on their learning journeys from the get-go.
6. Multiple Modalities
DDI’s Leadership Development Subscriptions give you the flexibility to offer our content in the modality that works best for your leadership culture.
Want to bring people together to connect in person? Engaging classroom sessions are ready at your fingertips. Is your team geographically dispersed? Opt for live virtual classroom sessions. Struggling to find time to pull a cohort together? Simply give leaders on-demand courses they can complete as their schedule permits.
Our content remains consistent across modalities so you can mix and match it according to your needs.
7. Customized Learning Journeys
We make it easy for you to find learning content and tee it up for leaders. Use our Designer tool to frame learning journeys around critical competencies. As your needs change, you can easily add or remove content from learning journeys, switch modalities, and more.
And if you need a hand, your Strategic Learning Team is always by your side and ready to assist.
8. Insight-Driven Personalized Learning
We are experts in the sciences of leadership assessment and development. Our subscription fuses these areas together to create powerful, insight-driven personalized learning experiences. Drawing on insights from sources such as skill-based assessments and personality inventories, we guide leaders with personal insights that make learning deep and relevant.
9. Frequent New Content
As a DDI subscription client, you get new content as soon as it’s available—and at no extra cost. To help you keep up with the rapidly evolving needs of your organization, we regularly add new content based on market trends, research data, client feedback, and other industry insights.
10. Competency and Business Driver Toolkit
All DDI subscriptions include our proprietary competency library, which shows key actions that every leader must demonstrate to master skills. We also include our proprietary Business Drivers, which help you focus your development strategy on the skills that align to your business’s most critical needs. Both competencies and Business Drivers provide you with a solid framework to extend across other talent systems such as career development, hiring, promotion, and succession planning.
11. Measurable Results
DDI was founded on the principle of creating behavior change, and measurement is an integral part of our subscriptions. We’ll help you measure learners’ preferences, skill improvements, and behavior change, as well as the perceptions of your stakeholders. These insights can help you understand how your learning journeys are performing and how your development strategy improves business performance.
12. Meaningful Behavior Change
It isn’t enough for leaders to learn theory. DDI’s approach to development hinges on changing behavior. We do it by turning learning into action with practice built into every course. Our digital platform reinforces learning with practice tools such as chatbots, manager support guides, planners, and simulations. We’ll also help you train facilitators to ensure effective learning in the classroom.
