Natixis, and its parent company BPCE, have a workforce 130,000 people strong. Training a workforce this large poses huge challenges. Previously, it was insurmountably difficult to set up the needed training programs. The costs were high to produce such materials, and they would quickly be outdated.
Often, training materials were required to be updated sooner than the company was able to hire content makers to update it. Natixis was struggling to take the training concept from reality to the point where they could disseminate content on a large scale.
According to Pascal Aubert, Digital Learning Leader at Natixis, "I think that, for us, e-learning is over. We won't return to this. SCORM has too many constraints, it works one day and no longer the next (because of a browser or a system update). Speach always works."
Many orgs don’t own their training materials, but outsource that to a third party. The problem with this is that you need to wait several months to receive your customized trainings, and you cannot modify them afterwards because it was recorded and created by using tools that are not yours.
