Instructional Technologies Inc. today formally introduced its Professional Services Group. Best known as the No. 1 provider of online training for the transportation industry, Instructional Technologies (ITI) said this not-quite-new consulting group will help clients plan and execute projects large and small.
Experienced Hands for Big Endeavors
“Through budget cuts, automation, and acquisitions, companies have rolled multiple jobs into a single person. And often that person needs an extra set of capable hands to pull off big projects,” said Laura McMillan, VP of Training Development. “They don’t necessarily need more permanent employees, but there’s an execution gap between the ideas and the people to get things done. We provide those experienced hands needed for a big impact on the company.”
“Other times, it has required a little more planning,” continued McMillan. “The clients we work with are incredibly smart and driven to succeed. They’ve got a great vision for what needs to happen within their company. We’re able to stand with them to build the strategy and tactics to accomplish the goal.”
Not Quite a New Group for ITI
Instructional Technologies has offered custom and consulting services of one type or another for the past 20 years, said Dr. Jim Voorhees, CEO. Training consulting and custom courses have been the most common. “When we finally added Laura, we knew we’d be able to grow the team and services quickly,” he said.
