We Need to Treat Individual Contributors Like Superstars

CLO Magazine

I wrote recently that we need to stop promoting star players into management roles, but it begs the question of where do we promote them instead? And many of them take on management roles they don’t want or aren’t cut out for. Stop Overselling the Management Role.

Cornerstone OnDemand. Q: We use Cornerstone OnDemand for our LMS and have to ask – where do you see them today? And in the case of the analyst role, I usually place a sub-set of LMS knowledge exceeding 17 years in the e-learning market, and tracking of extensive number of systems (690 today).

B2B Top Five LMSs

This did play a role in them not being listed as a top five vendor. I give it an edge over Cornerstone OnDemand, who still has major UI challenges to solve among some other items, and while their e-commerce is extremely extensive, if it and the admin side for that matter overwhelms you, then not even a great e-commerce will work. If you want uber e-commerce and can deal with the subpar UI and some other challenges, then explore Cornerstone OnDemand. #4

Step right up to the LMS Sideshow

eLearning 24-7

Trust me when I say this, someone out there was the first to use Cornerstone OnDemand. The ones that are mixed – i.e. some vendors have it, some don’t are: batch upload of courses, admin home dashboard, capture multiple user attributes, learning plan can be assigned by job role, region/location, department. . Hello, hello, hello! Come over and see the show. You kid, you in the back, there are scary things in this show, come on over. (in in my carnie voice).

No Cornerstone OnDemand at the show – that was really surprising, especially since they push Learning Cloud; No Saba, again they are really pushing folks to Saba Cloud, and have stated their commitment to Learning. Gamification plays a nice role within the solution; besides a leader board and badges, you can also see where you rank, even if you are not in the top 10 or 20, and you can also see where you rank compared to someone else. Well hello there!
