Consultant time is valuable—and therefore costly. Every hour invested in training is an hour unavailable for billable work. Being effective and efficient with learners’ time was critical. IBM chose adaptive simulations to help personalize learning delivery, allowing for customized "just-in-time, just-enough, just-for-me” skill building for its consultants around the globe.

You'll also learn about the adaptive simulations that are reducing learner fatigue and helping to upskill at scale, improving time to competence.
