A typical LMS can take months, if not a year or more, to implement and can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Getting it right is critical; getting it wrong can be a problem for both you and your business. To help you do it right, we’ve just launched the first of four reports on the best practices of implementing an LMS.
Written by Gary Woodill, Ed.D., director of Research and Analysis at Brandon Hall Research; David Fell, vice president of Business Development at Operitel Corporation; and Christopher Woodill, enterprise architect at Novantis Corporation, Planning and Evaluating Business Needs for an Enterprise Learning Management System covers the critical first phase in the process of implementing an enterprise LMS:
- Developing a business case
- Considering alternatives to an LMS
- Developing a “project charter”
- Developing an implementation strategy and project management plan
- Developing the communications and marketing plan for the project
- Identifying all stakeholders for an enterprise LMS
- Developing “use cases” for each business unit and group of stakeholders
Getting this first stage in an LMS implementation project right provides a firm foundation for success in all the later stages. Find out more.
