Strategy for a Successful Learning Management System (LMS) Replacement

Strategy for a Successful Learning Management System (LMS) Replacement
January 11, 2013 at 11:00 - 12:00 PM ET
Jason Marceau, Chief Operations Officer(Meridian Knowledge Solutions)
John Leh, VP Sales and Marketing(Meridian Knowledge Solutions)
Industry data and trends show that one out of every three organizations is looking at replacing its LMS. This shows that there is dissatisfaction with the current offerings and the ability to meet organizations needs and requirements. With greater importance being placed on learning, compliance, and analytics organizations have begun to search for improved offerings to meet their needs. When the time comes and replacement is inevitable, the first step should not be product demonstrations – but rather the development of a replacement strategy.

But, even if change is necessary, it is not always easy. A little upfront work goes a long way towards a successful LMS replacement and implementation outcome. The development of a replacement strategy will take you from the business case through the launch of the new system. To provide guidance on the considerations and approach this session will cover common pitfalls, the replacement process, selected case studies, a 10-point replacement strategy framework, and how to partner effectively with your selected LMS provider (which is critical to ensure a smooth transition). Upon conclusion you should be armed with a solid understanding that allows you to understand the elements of a replacement strategy, key practices by industry and complexity, and lessons learned and pitfalls to avoid.

Join Jason Marceau, Chief Operations Officer from Meridian, as he outlines key elements of an effective replacement strategy, and key practices for successful replacement implementations. Since joining Meridian in 2005, Jason and his colleagues have consulted on and implemented systems of all sizes for more than 100 of the world’s best-known private- and public-sector employers. He speaks on the topic of learning and performance management and technology for various learning and development industry organizations.
