U.S. Department of Justice Increases Training Satisfaction and Decreases Costs with PDI Ninth House

The U.S. Department of Justice’s organizations face retirement and transfers. Succession planning and retention are key objectives. Leveraging technology to cut costs is part of the E-Gov Initiative.


The Department of Justice (DOJ) comprises many organizations. Throughout, a mature workforce, including many top-level employees, is nearing retirement. Combined with the rising trend of employees leaving the DOJ, two critical issues arose: planning for the succession of key management positions and retaining the talent currently working at the DOJ.


The DOJ engaged PDI Ninth House to assist in the planning and deployment of a solution to address the challenges of embracing dynamic change, talent management, planning for succession, and building corporate culture. The solution included Ken Blanchard’s Situational Leadership II® e-learning course and customized management e-learning courses.


An internal DOJ study estimated that training with PDI Ninth House saved approximately $2,489 per person compared to the cost of traditional classroom training. By leveraging online learning with PDI Ninth House, the DOJ was able to deploy high-quality management training to employees in the field who normally would not be able to attend in-person training.
