How to choose the right LMS

eLearning 24-7

Should we have a company picnic at a park or will the work cafeteria do the trick? Should we demand that the vending machines charge only 50 cents for a candy bar or do we run over to 7-11 and stock up for rainy day? Some of these approaches work, others are just stop gaps.
