Best practices for a successful LMS implementation
11:00 – 11:30, Theatre 1
The successful implementation of any enterprise system requires solid business support and deliberate planning. This is especially true for systems that impact regulatory compliance, such as a Learning Management System (LMS). NetDimensions won together with Moody’s Analytics the Gold award for Best Enterprise Learning Platform Implementation in the 2016 Learning Technologies Awards.
Based on their experience across highly regulated industries, NetDimensions recommend 8 best practices for success, which they will present at this seminar. Attendees will learn about best practices, such as:
- Making sure your LMS is aligned with the organisation’s strategy
- The importance of having an executive sponsor, who can help bring teams from different departments together (such as L&D, IT and Legal
- Defining clear objectives, avoiding vague requirements and poorly defined success metrics, which often contribute to failed LMS implementations
- Good planning to make sure you have resources available to work on the implementation
- Ensuring you have a robust plan that contains all the key steps of an implementation process
- The value of time spent on formal training and informal practice
- Preparing your organisation for change. Many successful technical implementations fail because organizations do not prepare people for the changes.
- Maintain the buzz around the LMS after the implementation is completed.
