Because TrainingPros is in the business of providing expert consultants for clients’ learning & development projects, we experience the full spectrum of project management approaches and experiences with our clients and consultants. We even have a separate service and talent category of project managers because we recognize how important that skill set is to the success of a training program. Recently, TrainingPros teamed up with Young Resource Group (YRG) to develop a series of project management videos that we think you’ll find very helpful.

YRG focuses exclusively on delivering project management programs and preparing professionals for the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam through its bootcamp courses. For years, we have offered their PMP Exam Bootcamp Course through the TrainingPros catalog of instructor-led training offerings. With his deep industry and technical expertise, YRG’s Gordon Young was the perfect choice to briefly walk you through managing the pitfalls of project management and possibly inspiring you to pursue additional learning opportunities that will help you more effectively manage learning and development projects.

As we finish the last chapter of 2016, it is time to take a peek at the prologue for 2017 in anticipation for what the next 12 chapters hold for all of us. I am in the unique position to observe what companies are currently doing and planning to do in the next 12–18 months in employee development. TrainingPros supports some of the most employee-focused companies in the world like AT&T, American Express, State Farm, Publicis Media, Atmos Energy, Synchrony Financial, Kimberly-Clark and many others.

These are companies that understand the value of investing in their employees. What we have observed is that, in general, the content and skills in which employees are receiving training is not changing. Organizations continue to provide training for onboarding, compliance, safety, job-specific procedures, new business applications, sales effectiveness, customer service, product knowledge, people management and soft skills. What is and has been changing is how training is delivered to employees AND the speed at which learning programs need to be developed. Faster deployments are in response to the speed at which businesses are now moving.

In the last few blog entries on Learning Management Systems (LMSs), we have installed a local copy of Moodle and added a course and some students. At this point, I am assuming that you have a working copy of Moodle on your PC. If this is not the case, take a look at the previous posts in this series by reviewing all entries under Richard Kordel. In this post, I would like to conclude this very brief tour of Moodle by adding some content.

Before we start, I would like to restate one point. The goal here is not to learn Moodle in order to adopt it for your business. It is to allow you to work with a real LMS and to make you conversant and comfortable with basic LMS activities. The overall goal of this series has been to provide the background you need to write an effective RFP for a new LMS and to evaluate the responses you receive.
