Make Employee Training Part of Your Management Consulting Engagement
Updated: 5 days ago
In today's rapidly changing business environment, the need for employee training has become more critical than ever. Evolving technology, more stringent regulatory requirements, and increased complexity in the workplace shifted employee training from a luxury to a necessity.
Employee Training and Management Consulting Engagements
Depending on the specific needs and goals of the organization, employee training can be a valuable part of a management consulting engagement. Management consultants are typically hired to help organizations improve their performance and achieve their objectives, and employee training can be an effective tool for achieving these goals.
Here are some reasons why employee training can be a beneficial part of a management consulting engagement:
By providing employees with the skills and knowledge they need to perform their jobs more effectively, employee training can help improve overall organizational performance.
Addressing Skill Gaps
Employee training can help address skill gaps within the organization, such as in areas like technology, leadership, or communication.
Enhancing Employee Engagement
When employees feel that their employer is investing in their development, it can enhance their engagement and motivation.
Supporting Change Management
If the management consulting engagement involves implementing significant changes in the organization, employee training can help support the transition by providing employees with the tools they need to adapt to the new environment.
Enhancing Organizational Culture
Employee training can be used to reinforce the values and culture of the organization, helping to create a more cohesive and aligned workforce.
The Shift to eLearning
In recent years, the availability of powerful new SaaS-based technologies, combined with increasingly remote workforces has shifted employee training away from an in-person, classroom-based approach in favor of online learning, commonly referred to as corporate eLearning.
The foundational technology supporting corporate eLearning programs is a Learning Management System (LMS). This is the application that is used to build, deliver, manage, and track an eLearning program.
The LMS Portals Multi-Tenant Architecture for Management Consultants
At LMS Portals, we provide our clients and partners with a SaaS-based, multi-tenant learning management system that allows you to launch a dedicated training environment (a portal) for each of your unique training audiences.
Our platform is ideal for our management consulting partners as it allows you to launch a customized training portal for each of your corporate clients.
In addition to our multi-tenant architecture, the LMS Portal platform provides several unique features to enhance a consultant-led employee training program.
Each portal you launch can be uniquely branded with elements that can include images, logos, videos, headlines, colors, and more.
Course Authoring Tool
The system includes an embedded course authoring tool that enables most anyone to build engaging courses quickly and easily using existing digital content, such as videos, PDFs, SCORM files, PowerPoint presentations, and other forms of digital content.
Our Learning Path engine allows you to combine courses for delivery in a logical progression. Learning Paths add structure to a training program and ensure that each learner has achieved a level of foundational knowledge before moving on to more complex topics.
Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT)
The LMS Portals platform supports virtual Instructor-Led Training sessions as part of a course or learning path. The combination of these sessions with on-demand courses is referred to as Blended Learning and is considered a best practice in employee training.
The platform allows you to launch any number of Discussion Boards to promote social learning. This allows learners to communicate with instructors and each other to support and enhance the learning process.
Reporting and Analytics
With LMS Portals, you can generate and share multiple types of reports to review learner engagement and progress as well as the overall performance of the program. If you choose to, you can even allow your client stakeholders to login at their convenience to run ad hoc reports.
