Product Review: Plateau TMS (Talent Management System)

eLearning 24-7

I’ll be the first to admit, that I was not a big fan of the previous versions of the Plateau system. After viewing the Plateau TMS, my concerns in one area have been eliminated, in others, not so much. Plateau LMS is a Talent Management System, made up of four modules. Plateau Learning. Plateau Performance. Plateau Career and Succession. Plateau Compensation. Front end (what the end user sees) UI – A giant Kudos to Plateau.

What to Do When You Hate to Hate Learning

CLO Magazine

If we don’t jump to a new learning curve, the plateau may become a precipice. I love to learn. But when it’s actually time to learn, it’s not always as fun as I’d hoped. I can feel clumsy. I worry about appearing inept. I may fight fatigue and hunger.

Special Post – Why the Big Four are not on my latest Top 10 LMS List

eLearning 24-7

Plateau is long gone and buried and people should realize that. Since my Top 10 list of LMS vendors has been posted online, I have received quite a bit of e-mail wondering why the biggest names: Cornerstone On Demand, Saba, SumTotal and SuccessFactors are not on the list. A LMS should first be a LMS. When I talk about a LMS, I am saying specifically a learning management system and the vendors themselves should see their own product first and foremost as a LMS, not as a TM/PM or whatever.

For example, a Plateau case study (PDF) talks about: The biggest benefit Reuters has seen from its Plateau LMS to date is from deep linking functionality. With deep links in Plateau, users can launch content in two or three clicks. I've had a similar discussion several times over the past few months. These discussions center on what requirements should go into an LMS RFP and more broadly how the LMS should really be integrated into the organization.

Five Years of Blogging

Experiencing eLearning

Monthly views plateaued for most of 2009 and 2010, but started increasing again in 2011 as I posted more often. Five years ago today, I published my first two posts on this blog. As I noted in my first post, five years ago I was developing a course on social media tools for K-12 teachers called Building Collaborative Online Environments. I didn’t feel that I could really encourage teachers to use these tools with digging in to use them myself.

Advice for High-achievers and Leaders Who Coach Them

Training Industry

If you are a star performer, you will plateau at some point in your career if you can’t make and learn from mistakes. Your ability to do things well could keep you from taking risks.

Big Dog (Saba, SumTotal, Plateau, Cornerstone OnDemand, Learn.com). If you are seeking TM as your focus and you want one of the big dogs – I found Plateau’s system to offer appropriate functionality for it, but found some real concern in other areas (see my product review). Your competitors are not always the Big Dogs – Learn.com, Saba, Plateau, etc. So, how can I honestly say to myself, Plateau is my top competitor, when my yearly revenues are 3M?
