eLearning 24-7

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.

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.

What is formal learning and why you should expand your learning plan


Formal learning is important, but it shouldn’t be the cornerstone of your training program. As technology trends evolve, so do our learning preferences. Research shows that today’s workers retain knowledge better and they are more engaged at companies that have adopted the 70:20:10 learning model. This means we learn the most when we acquire 70% of the information we need at work via on-the-job training, 20% through collaboration with the experts and peers in the organization and 10% through traditional, formal training.

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! Why am I so happy?  It is HR Tech. 

Why Retention Is the Achilles’ Heel of Your Sales Kickoff (and What to Do About It)


Research shows frequent, two-way communication is a critical component in aligning sales with strategy ; a good kickoff is the cornerstone of that communication.

Cornerstone Learn – The LMS for CoD has improved, but is it something I would buy? While I do not know who WD will focus on in the market, my belief is that it will be SuccessFactors (an easy win),  Cornerstone (mixed results), Oracle (victory!),  SAP (if they can’t win this one, they shouldn’t be in the game), SumTotal Learn (mixed results – and how important – unknown) and to a very lesser degree Saba. It is a common misconception and one that can have and often does have negative results. Yeah, yeah, I know. What does this really say?  Dated UI.

The UX designer, thinks about existing patterns of behaviour, to try to reduce the confusion make the decision-making easier. Is it pushed to us?
