Who it’s for: L&D, HR and procurement professionals tasked with implementing new tools and systems such as an LMS, into their organisation, who are looking for a robust step by step framework to help get it right!
Successfully selecting a computer based system to assist with achieving staff learning and development goals is not a simple process, and yet many treat it as such, leading to failed implementations and the inevitable recriminations.
The factors involved are usually complex, and there are often many people involved, each of whom can have their own ideas on what should be happening.
This free best practice guide gives you a method that breaks down this complexity into simple steps, and provides a framework and process within which to work so you can make a robust and defensible decision that minimises risk.
Following a robust process is a far cry from the risky way that many systems are selected on the basis of supplier reputation, or internal politics, or the fact that a system already enjoys success with your competitors.
