Skillsoft + SumTotal Risks and Challenges

The constant SkillSoft's revenue decline is mainly due to low customer retention, and new sales.

While Skillsoft will continue to bank on its leadership position in eLearning with an extensive library of tools, content and compliance offerings, much more work needs to be done to shore up support from a diverse installed base by delivering more relevant, user-friendly and innovative products and services.

The upcoming release of Project Artisan could be a catalyst for Skillsoft to delight its customers once again as it aims to meet and exceed user expectations regardless of their background. That's particularly important to ensure that Skillsoft's products resonate with a new generation of users accustomed to a host of learning content on Youtube and Pinterest, coupled with the need to step up its fight against apps rivals that have zeroed in on the more sticky learning tools as the key to continuous talent management and improvement.
