The Search for the Best Learning Management System
I attended the China Aviation Training Forum 2016 in Beijing on October 18-19. This two day forum presented some interesting insights into the challenges facing the aviation industry in China, especially in terms of the supply and demand for pilots.
Over the next two decades, fast growth in China’s domestic market will make it the largest domestic market in the world, and air traffic within Asia is set to become the largest travel market. More than 1.5 billion passengers are expected to travel by air within China in 2035, almost four times the number of passengers in 2015.
The successful implementation of any enterprise system requires solid business support and deliberate planning and this is especially true for systems that have a wide impact on regulatory compliance, such as Learning Management Systems (LMS). These implementations require detailed planning and cross-organization collaboration to guarantee success.
Trying to evaluate the impact that learning and development has on your people and ultimately, the business is not a new challenge. Learning should be a strategic investment that drives business performance and builds business capability. But knowing ‘how’ to achieve this measurement is not always easy.
There are different approaches to evaluation that I have explored with NetDimensions in our recent webinar and the accompanying paper. However, the time has come for us to move beyond just evaluating learning activity. At Fosway Group we often say that L&D has a habit of delivery. So to embrace impact as a central ethos, L&D needs to stop taking orders and just tracking completion rates, number of events run and happy sheets returned. Instead, we need to look at whether or not learning delivers a positive result – ideally for both the learner and the business. And if it doesn’t, we shouldn’t do it.
But 80% of the attendees at the webinar rated themselves as ‘OK’ or ‘Poor’ at measuring learning impact. And our current research into over 1000 learning professionals also shows there is considerable room for improvement with only 54% of respondents saying that their learning technology ‘always’ or ‘frequently’ delivers a positive impact for their organisation.
