The Secret to Picking the Right Learning Platform

With hundreds of learning platforms in the market, it is not surprising that many organizations feel completely overwhelmed at the prospect of selecting the right system for their needs.

Many simply throw up their arms in despair and delay the decision for the future. Others try their best but either quickly succumb to “paralysis by analysis” or simply take a stab in the dark only to wonder in the days, months, and years after “Did we really make the right choice?!

But it is possible to select a learning platform with confidence. To narrow down rapidly to the choices that really fit your organization’s needs. To bring all stakeholders along for the ride, garner consensus, and arrive at a choice that you feel confident will meet your needs for years to come.

One way to do that, of course, is to hire consultants who know what they are doing and rely on their expertise and experience. That’s a great option if you can afford it, but many organizations can’t.

Fortunately, there is another option.

The Middle Path

You see, the “secret” to picking the right learning platform is not to hire expensive consultants or to dedicate scarce internal resources to months of culling through all of the options and still not be sure in the end.

There is a middle path that empowers your organization to use internal resources effectively, efficiently, and confidently to arrive the right choice.

The secret to that middle path is to have a process that works.

And that is what the Learning Platform Selection Boot Camp offers.

The boot camp gives you access to our decades of experience with building, selecting, and implementing learning management platforms for membership organizations. It offers an incredibly cost-effective way to run a faster, less risky, and ultimately much more successful selection process.

Big Value, Delivered Conveniently

The boot camp is designed to help you:

  • Understand the most important emerging learning technology trends
  • Put together the right team for participating in a selection process
  • Clarify and document your objectives and requirements for the desired platform
  • Identify the learning technology options best suited to meet your organization’s goals
  • Confidently lead a selection process that ensures long-term success!

If you plan to work only with your own staff and volunteers to select a learning platform, the boot camp will ensure that you are as well prepared as possible.  Even if you plan to bring in a consultant,the boot camp will ensure that you are prepared to get maximum value out of the consulting engagement. The boot camp consists of:

  • A series of live, Web-based sessions  in which we discuss in detail key elements of our time-tested, 7-step selection process (The sessions will also be recorded.)
  • Access to us and a group of peers through live Q&A and e-mail to get answer to your technology selection questions
  • Key documents and templates for use in running a successful RFP process
  • Explanation of and practice at how to use the documents, templates, and overall processes effectively
  • The option to earn CAE credit from ASAE.

The upcoming session of the boot camp is going to be a pilot for a dramatically updated, on-demand version that we will release this fall. Because it is a pilot, it will be very high touch – you will get plenty of quality time interacting with Jeff and Celisa directly to get their advice and guidance.

The content that will be covered in the boot camp has been delivered many times and is based on deep experience, but because this version is a pilot, and we will be asking you for feedback along the way to make the experience even better, we plan to offer it at a special price.

We plan to open up enrollment within the next few days. Enrollment will be offered on a first come, first served basis, determined by when you sign up for the notification list. So, click below to sign up today!

(Please note: The boot camp is currently open only to employees of trade and professional associations and association management companies.)
