Program Overview

Program Overview

Whether you are selecting a new LMS vendor, or choosing one for the first time, it is an important decision. A failed system selection and implementation experience can greatly damage the reputation of the learning and development (L&D) function in an organization, and demoralize the organization’s staff. Learn best practices gleaned from L&D thought leaders around the globe and find out how to select, implement, and adopt the best choice for your organization. The course is based on the July 2012 July Infoline “Selecting and Implementing an LMS” by Stacy Lindenberg, and will guide participants to create a comprehensive and robust plan to identify internal and external partners, create winning project plans, and set and execute a strategy for success.

What to Expect:

  • Technical Requirements: Each session of the workshop is conducted in the WebEx Training Center platform with a toll-free teleconference or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) option for the audio component. Special software is not required. You only need a standard web browser and telephone or VoIP capability to participate. In addition, it is strongly recommended to use a desktop or laptop computer as using a tablet or phone severely limits your ability to fully and actively participate in the program.
