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.
