The Fosway Group 9-Grid™ report for Learning Systems is a multi-dimensional model that can be used to understand the relative position of solutions and providers predominantly in the UK and European markets. It allows you to compare different solutions based on their Performance, Potential, Market Presence, Total Cost of Ownership and Future Trajectories across the market. The report is updated annually.

In order to understand how to interpret the research properly, we strongly recommend that you read our background paper ‘Introduction to the Fosway 9-Grid™’ which explains the model in detail.

What we have seen in the last three years is a convergence in solutions where traditional LMSs have upped their game in terms of next gen features for learner experience, collaboration and gamification. Meanwhile the next gen learning platforms have been forced to back-fill traditional functionality around face-to-face training and compliance by customer demand. This meeting in the middle leaves everyone confused about what the terms mean and what they really need to support learning in their organisation. So, as of 2020, Fosway is changing our classification for the 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems to segment into Suites and Specialists.

There is a very important difference between 9-Grid™ and other analyst models. In the 9-Grid™ all of the nine zones have value, and more interestingly, have an associated set of actions that can help you to maximise the value of the relationship with different vendors.

This means that being in the top right is not the only valid selection point. For some organisations, top right may not even be desirable. There are many other zones that offer success, especially when balanced against Total Cost of Ownership. In order to understand how to interpret the research properly, we strongly recommend that you read our background paper ‘Introduction to the Fosway 9-Grid™’ which explains the model in detail.

It’s an understatement to say that things have changed rapidly during 2020 and L&D is now more than ever at the forefront of supporting extraordinary changes to how we all work and learn.

Fosway Group and Learning Technologies are aiming to get under the skin of your priorities and the new demands being placed on L&D by organisations, stakeholders and learners. And we will be looking to share priority access to the results with respondents as we enter the Spring.

The survey should take around 20 minutes to complete. Please note that all responses are treated in the strictest confidence and no views or information will be directly attributed to a person or company in any of the published results. You can view our Privacy Policy here.
