How to Select an LMS
Choosing the right LMS is a key component of creating an effective training strategy, and integration is an important element. So is a robust tracking mechanism to make sure you can demonstrate value. Here are some important points to keep in mind.
The Big Picture
An LMS is part of a larger suite of learning management tools. The other components can include a content management system, online collaboration tools, analytics and reporting software, virtual classroom integration software, social networking elements as well as performance and compensation management systems. Choose an LMS that integrates these components to streamline talent management.
The Right Vendor
Choosing the right vendor is critically important. There is a range of vendor types, including those who sell standalone solutions and those who provide modules that integrate with existing ERP systems. One way to make sure you choose the right vendor is to insist on a live demonstration or negotiate a free trial.
The Ability to Adapt
Your talent management needs will continue to evolve after you’ve deployed an LMS. For that reason, it’s important to select an LMS that allows you to add new content from diverse sources and accommodate changing global standards such as SCORM and AICC.

Choosing an LMS is a big decision with far-reaching implications for your talent management program.
