Have to go agree with Anthony, that the advice from Sue is very good. Also use the search box at the top right of the page to have a look at comments/articles on this subject.

I would probably start with your existing clients. Surely a good way of introducing them to new products and services first and providing you with a good additional sell, as well as giving you the ability to have a little flexibility in terms of managing their expectations as you work out any bugs etc?
There have been a fair few of these types of products in the last 2 years- and I would do some more research as to their relative success/failures, see how they have developed, and also how they are positioned as a part of an overall prodcut range.
There are some valuable lessons to be learned!
Marketing these kinds of services needs to be well thought out, your message clear, and the type of delivery sensitive to the current market. I can give some advice on this if it would be useful, some please feel free to contact me directly here at TrainingZONE on 0117 9158652.

Sorry that I can't directly help! But if you do have a scoop for TZ please contact the Editor!!

Have a look at the TrainingZONE expert guide 'How to get your training accredited' available as a free download at https://www.trainingzone.co.uk/news/expertguides/ .
Also consider contacting the major accrediting bodies such as Edexcel https://www.trainingzone.co.uk/partnerpages/partners/edexcel/ or the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA)http://www.qca.org.uk (the 'guardian of standards in education and training')who should be able to provide good advice.

I would also go and look through the Edexcel Partner Page for suitable alternatives at https://www.trainingzone.co.uk/partnerpages/partners/edexcel/
the full contact details can be found there, and I am sure they will be able to point you in the right direction.

Have a look at http://www.knowledgeboard.com which is a european KM community run in partnershipwith the EU. Some aspects are every academic, but you may find some extremely useful contacts/content/resources.

There are several different products taking this approach, SOME examples are:
-Insights Training And Development
However to use some of these team profiling systems you will be required go through a process of accreditation to be able to use them.
March's theme on TrainingZONE is on Developing Teams, so you can expect more on this subject over the coming weeks.
As ever use the search box at the top right of the page to research previous articles, interviews, product information and Any Answers questions.

Have a look at the key Note market reports here on TrainingZONE.
They are renewed and published each year and can be very valuable.
