Ever hire a consulting firm to design and develop an internal training program and end up less than thrilled with the results? Many of my clients report they have experience hiring the wrong vendor on one or more occasions. Do you have a process? Is it working? Are you using the process? Here is a basic process that works and ten tips for making this very important decision.
While this is a logical process and you may already have one too, here are some tips that seem to make it all work to make the best choice.

In summary, have a process and follow it. Refer to the tips above to refine your process and fine a great vendor. Good Luck.
