LMS Consulting Services

We provide expert LMS consulting services to help clients get the most out of their learning management systems.

Learning Management System Planning

LMS Planning is our service for clients considering an upgrade of their existing Learning Management System or renewing a long-term LMS contract. We help you get an unbiased expert opinion on how your current LMS stacks up against modern competitors. 

Our planning service starts with an independent review and assessment of your current system and configuration. This detailed evaluation is a starting point for enhancements to your existing system or the launch of a selection process for a new solution. 

Our review also provides insights into how well your system supports your growth and expansion plans. Information collected in the Checkup lays the foundation for detailed learning management business requirements.

LMS System Requirements

Business requirements ensure your new LMS will support your business needs. Failure to adequately document requirements, or writing requirements that are not sufficiently detailed, will increase the risk of overlooking critical gaps in system capabilities and features.

Our LMS consultants work with your stakeholders to ensure all voices are heard and included in the selection process. In addition, we provide hands-on guidance to your stakeholders and HR leaders on formulating requirements to enable them to be tested and rigorously assessed during the selection process.

LMS Project Management

Project management is one of the most critical aspects of implementing a Learning Management System (LMS). Without good project management, implementation costs can spiral out of control, reducing the overall ROI of the LMS investment. That’s why partnering with a consulting firm with experience in LMS project management is essential. 

At SkillQ Consulting, we have years of experience managing LMS projects for clients from all industries. We understand the importance of good project management and are committed to helping our clients get the most value from their LMS investment. We also understand that good Project Management and good Change Management go hand-in-hand. 

Our process identifies change management risks and plans for change management activities early in the project so that we can avoid or mitigate potential problems later on. Our goal is to help our customers successfully implement their LMS and achieve their desired business outcomes.

Don’t overlook LMS administration when considering whether to enhance your current system or implement a new system. Perceived shortcomings of an LMS may be the result of inadequate administrator training.
