Developing an LMS Remains a Priority for Global Companies

Learning experts tend to view traditional learning management systems (LMS) as less important than newer, more integrated talent management and content management systems, social media, and informal learning tools. Yet, many multinationals say that implementing a new learning management system (LMS) is a critical priority in the coming year.

Companies such as Shell Oil and Lloyds Banking group still regard creating an LMS as critical to maximizing their existing learning solutions and managing their resources in tough economic times, according to David Wilson, Managing Director of Elearnity, a European Learning and Talent Analyst firm.

“What we discovered in our discussions goes against some of the rhetoric around Learning Management Systems,” Wilson said. “It seems the LMS is still viewed as a solution that is going to help organizations through this challenging period. And now there has been a clear shift in the systems to encompass business areas like employee performance, talent and succession planning as well as learning, their value to organizations appears to be increasing.”

Many of these companies do plan to develop next generation learning tools in the long term.
