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.

Top 10 eLearning Predictions 2011 #LCBQ

The explosion in the world of mobile learning (mLearning) is fueled by the numbers, but also by the need to provide new kinds of learning and support that can be used at the point of need. The answer is simple: Information Overload provides inherent opportunity for curation.

eLearning Portal Integration

Tony Karrer

Many LMS vendors provide portlets, gadgets or widgets that allow for access of learning content (most often meaning courses and courseware) through the corporate portal. The first stage of integrating this content is to simply provide links to individual content items that are housed in the LMS. Many LMS vendors provide this capability. And it can be really important if you want to create web sites outside the LMS that might provide context to a set of courses in the LMS.

LMSs, TMs and HCMs

eLearning 24-7

True, HR at some companies provide “training”, but I have found it is always better to have the two entities as separate departments. Oracle then followed suit by acquiring SuccessFactors who had acquired Plateau in the past. I’m sure the people who had purchased Plateau or even SuccessFactors Learning system were delighted to hear the news. Please note : I personally find great benefit in HCMs and the capabilities they provide.

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. Can you research best practices or case studies that will provide you with fresh ideas? Your ability to do things well could keep you from taking risks. A common pattern among high-achievers and leaders who have a history of excellence is a consistent focus on the tried and true. They won’t venture beyond what they know they will do well.

SuccessFactors added LMS provider Plateau to its growing suite of integrated talent management products. As big providers focus on the enterprise-wide integration of learning into talent management systems, opportunities are opening up for others to expand.

Can we jumpstart new tech usage?

Clark Quinn

The Gartner Hype Cycle talks about the ‘Peak of Inflated Expectations’ and then the ‘Trough of Disillusionment’, followed by the ‘Slope of Enlightenment’ until you reach the ‘Plateau of Productivity’ (such vibrant language!). And what I want to suggest is that the slope up is where we realize the real meaningful affordances that the technology provides.
