The Cornerstone Effect
OCTOBER 13, 2014
First off let me be clear, this post is not about the Cornerstone OnDemand LMS in the sense of whether it is a good or bad platform. Cornerstone is not to blame because they didn’t do anything wrong. It was those statements, which based on the Cornerstone platform, created assumptions that those folks had misinterpreted as being universal, when in reality, they were not. Talk to the vendors who pitch this term as if it is similar to your city being destroyed by Godzilla, and you will find that it similarly aligns with Cornerstone OnDemand’s platform.

Cornerstone OnDemand. When you play that game, you will lose – and lose big. Q: We use Cornerstone OnDemand for our LMS and have to ask – where do you see them today?

Cornerstone OnDemand. Oh, you can bulk upload – but that has to be done through Cornerstone – they will do it for you – for a fee. IMO Cornerstone is more of a HCM (Human Capital Management) platform. If I was to compare the Big Dog Four – SuccessFactors, Saba, Cornerstone OnDemand and SumTotal by Skillsoft, Saba would win hands down. I should note that Saba is another HCM possible player, and that the majority of their customers also buy two modules (learning and performance). Welcome, welcome all! Some would call that vapor.

The most commonly-owned solutions are SharePoint, Yammer, and Cornerstone OnDemand. Over the course of the last few years, there’s been a lot of conversation about “social” learning and its rise in popularity.
