Presenter will discuss a six-phase one-year schedule for implementing an enterprise-wide Learning Management System. Phase One is technical needs analysis and product evaluation; Phase Two is LMS software acquisition, installation and configuration; Phase Three is population of the LMS with existing learning materials and user data, and the pilot testing thereof; Phase Four is LMS rollout and training; Phase Five is maintenance planning; and Phase Six, is courseware development. The goal of this process is to complete the implementation on time and on budget. The technical needs analysis phase is focused on technical requirements, and it is the key to this approach. We know that when projects of this type fails, it is almost always due to lack of initial analysis and planning. If data integration is not seamless, if management reporting is inadequate, if the system is not secure, stable, scalable and easy to use, then momentum will be lost.
