5 Effective Tips to Rolling Out a New LMS/LXP in Your Organization

When rolling it out to your organization, a new LMS/LXP can be a daunting task. It’s crucial to execute a plan effectively to ensure a successful rollout. Here are five tips that we’ve found helpful when implementing a new LMS/LXP:

  • Plan, Plan, Plan!:

The most important step is planning everything out before you start. Make sure you know your goals and how the new system will help you achieve them.

  • Communicate with Stakeholders:

Make sure everyone impacted by the change knows about it and is on board. This includes managers, employees, and even customers or clients if necessary.

  • Train Employees:

Employees will be using the new system daily, so it’s essential to train them on how to use it. Depending on their role, this should include both basics and more advanced features.

  • Involve your learners:

The learning experience is all about the end-user, so get them involved as early as possible. An important thing to consider as you prepare to roll out your new platform is planning a soft launch. It’s well worth getting a focus group of users together and collecting valuable feedback before launching to the whole organization.

  • Make a pilot run:

The extended team should do the pilot run, which should keep a check of the platform on particular aspects like contextual-based upgrades, assessment quality, learning paths, etc., from their respective fields. The early test is helpful and helps understand the characteristics of a great learning solution.
