Development Dimensions International
When I got hired on at my company, we needed some quick wins and instant content to get some of the initiatives going. Having the facilitator and participant materials all ready to go (Training in a box) was extremely helpful. What would have taken me years to put together myself, I was able to put together in a few months. The materials are very user friendly.

Impraise
If you're a SMB looking for a cost-effective solution with a great team to support you in implementation, Impraise is a great solution! As you scale, or if your reviews are complex with various cycles during different timelines, this may not be the right tool for you. All and all, they provided flexibility to ensure our folks had productive feedback conversations 2x/year, and also gave folks the optionality to ask/give real-time and regular feedback above and beyond reviews.

Pros
Development Dimensions International
  • I enjoyed the process of getting certified to teach topics from DDI. Our master instructor was excellent. He gave wonderful feedback and provided an environment where we could practice our skills and be ready to teach.
  • The facilitator and participant materials are very professional and well laid out. They are easy to follow. Especially as a facilitator of the course. The facilitator guide provides very detailed content of what to say and how to teach the topic.
  • I love the additional job aids, videos, surveys and reinforcement of training tools they provide for you to use with your learners. They also are provided in various formats (mobile, hard copy, etc.)

Cons
Development Dimensions International
  • Some of the courses are a bit out of date. They don't always stay up with the times of current trends in the business world.
  • I would like to have the option of using the participant materials in a mobile format instead of having to call in and order hard copy participant materials for each course I teach.
  • I would like to see more courses converted to Industrial format. I work for an Industrial type company and some of the courses are not relevant or do not hit home for our learners. They say they cannot relate to the case studies, videos, etc.

  • Impraise was not a solution that could scale with us to 3,000+ employees.
  • It was not easily integrated with other HRIS and HR tools we were using
  • As reviews got more complex, it being less and less user friendly

I like OpenSesame for the numerous options of topics you have to choose from. However, my DDI rep really helped me drill down the topics we needed to focus on. DDI simplified the process for me so it was not so confusing on where to start and what to use. We mapped out a plan together on how to support our employees and leaders in their development.

Impraise is a strong tool for smaller teams given their high-touch customer service and flexible product. As you scale and need more integrated, complex solutions, a system like Workday may make more sense for your business.

Return on Investment
Development Dimensions International
  • We are a part of a dealer network. Before we rolled out the training and materials using DDI, we ranked 38 out of 52 dealers for our dealer loyalty score. We are now ranked #2.
  • We are seeing our leaders confidence go up. They feel much more confident in how to lead their teams. The environment within the teams has improved. They are having more effective conversations with team members. 1x1s are happening in a more consistent basis.
  • Our leaders have more tools than they have had before in how to lead and support their teams. Checklists, templates, surveys, etc.
