Government agencies face increasing pressures to become more responsive, cost efficient, and flexible to the needs of citizens. Implementing a Learning Management System (LMS) to centralize employee training and skills management can dramatically improve organizational performance by shortening training times and facilitating optimal allocations of specific skill sets. IT stands to benefit considerably from an organizational LMS and should lead this initiative by piloting a system for IT skills management.
The Benefits of Centralized Learning Management
With an already high uptake among academic institutions, LMSs are quickly finding their way into other industry sectors. A growing number of enterprises have identified the benefits of implementing an LMS to create single learning and skills management portal – including a quick ROI in most cases. As the industry focus continues to expand beyond academia and towards the lucrative corporate training market and more advanced personnel management capabilities, public sector agencies are being presented with LMS solutions better suited to their needs.
