BizLibrary

I truly believe BizLibrary can be used in any setting. It is beneficial especially when combined with classroom training to reinforce the concepts. It is benifical as a tool to address individual limitations and development. It is beneficial to use with overall training. I have nothing bad to say about it. My training program would not be as effective without BizLibrary and my performance is hindered without the connection and guidance I get from my client success representative.

The presentations helped me develop a deeper understanding of a subject. The information is a nice combination of [being] well organized and applicable to real life information. The test questions are clearly worded and really make you think (but not crazy unrealistic scenarios). I feel very confident about my ability to perform my job.

Cons

BizLibrary

  • There is some depth lacking around very-specific technical and analytics competencies. Though I understand that not every company has the same "big data" needs as we do in our industry, the basic tools or skill set is one which is easily transferable and a value add to other roles/industries.
  • It would be great to see an LMS built into the BizLibrary platform !
  • A suggestion made recently by one of our VPs (which I agree with) was that it would be nice if there was a section of more-advanced content in areas around leadership development, conflict management, operating across boundaries... the kind of critical thinking skills people need to advance their careers from an individual contributor level into management.

Alternatives Considered

BizLibrary

I used SkillSoft at my previous company and the content is great, however I found that more of the BizLibrary is mobile compatible. I am also able to purchase SkillSoft content through BizLibrary if there are courses I would like to leverage in addition to the BizLibrary content.
