9-Grid™ is a five dimensional market analysis model that is used to understand the relative position of solutions and providers in the learning and talent systems market. 9-Grid™ has been in evolution since 2008 and is driven by demand for analysis and insight designed for European-based companies. Too often, organisations have had to rely on a US-centric view.
We created 9-Grid™ based on Fosway’s unrivalled, independent research in the Next Generation HR and Learning markets over 18+ years, and with the insights and experience of our Corporate Research Network. This comprises over 150 leading global companies; typically enterprise-scale organisations with a large European presence.
A key difference of the 9-Grid™ to other analyst models, is that all of the nine zones have value and a set of actions to maximise that value. 9-Grid™ explicitly prompts real conversations around the trade-off between customer performance, solution sophistication and total cost of ownership.
