Involve stakeholder and user feedback throughout the selection process
It’s typically not enough to simply choose an LMS that checks off all of your required features. To truly know if Pinnacle Series is the right fit for your team, you’ll need to make sure that the system aligns with your organization’s goals, as well as the needs of your employees.
This means involving stakeholders, such as managers and department heads, throughout the selection process. Additionally, it’s essential to get input from the end-users who will be utilizing the system on a day-to-day basis. Doing so lets you gain insight into what specific features or functionalities are critical to your team.
Ensure the libraries have content relevant to your work
Having access to relevant, up-to-date training content is vital to the success of any learning platform. A critical factor in determining if an LMS is the right fit for your team is to ensure that the software libraries contain content that is relevant to their specific work.
Pinnacle LMS offers industry-specific training materials geared toward real challenges faced by the AEC & M industries, which means your team can access targeted content that will help them improve their skills and stay up-to-date with industry changes.
Identify champions willing to help with onboarding.
Changing the way your team works can be a challenge, especially when introducing a new LMS platform. That’s why having champions in your organization to help with the onboarding process is essential. These champions can help ensure that the new system is adopted and used to its full potential.
Identifying key players in your organization who are willing to be champions for the new system before you choose one, and are enthusiastic about the finalists you’ve selected, can make all the difference in the success of your adoption efforts.
Take advantage of the customer support and resources offered
Consider the level of customer support and resources available when choosing a new learning system, especially if it’s been a while since your organization has rolled out new technology.
Pinnacle LMS provides an array of resources to support the successful implementation and use of the platform. With ongoing support from our Customer Success team, and resources like live webinar events and learning plans that target individual skills gaps.
Track progress and measure success regularly
Finally, it’s important to track progress and measure success on a regular basis. This means setting measurable goals and benchmarks to help track improvements and ensure the system you selected is having the intended impact on your organization. If not, it maybe be time to start researching replacements.
Pinnacle Series offers reporting and analytics to help track progress and identify areas where further training may be needed to ensure your team is achieving its goals.
