We’re pleased to bring you a guest post by Ann
Collins, a Skillsoft Learning Strategist.
Mid-Atlantic region recently hosted a user group event at the Pragmatics, Inc.,
headquarters in Reston, VA. We were
thrilled to have almost 60 existing and potential customers — representing 40
different companies in attendance!
We were equally
as thrilled that Jerry Nine, our Chief Operating Officer, was able to attend
and kick off the session with an overview of current trends in e-learning and
how Skillsoft is optimizing our own investments, such as Skillport® 8.
Two of our
customers shared their stories with the group. CACI’s session highlighted how they are leveraging Skillsoft’s services
group and a customized Skillsoft® KnowledgeCenter™ Portal to connect formal and
informal learning and align learning to core capabilities and leadership
competencies. CSC presented their
solution for managing large-scale certification programs for PMP® and ITIL®.
Through Skillsoft’s certification management services, CSC is able to
experience tremendous cost savings while maintaining a “best of breed” program
with significantly high pass rates.
presented a session on using the Impact Analysis (core tool and service for our
customers) to measure the business and financial impact of targeted learning
programs, or estimating the value/ROI of a broad set of learning solutions.
We are already
thinking about our next user group, and hope to have even more people in
attendance. The ability to network and share stories and challenges with other
customers, especially for those who could not make it to Perspectives, was
invaluable. We’re certain that the cute
mugs with biscotti and free breakfast didn’t hurt, either!
