Skillsoft Leadership Development Program

They have a large library - make sure you clearly study the library offerings and choose the courses that are best for you as you will never be able to use all of them. Make sure you survey your user base before purchasing the licensing of the library courses so the courses are 'marked' with an employee in mind to keep costs minimized. Only purchase the Books 24x7 if you have a large IT department - otherwise you might want to lease a smaller content portion. Their Leadership Development, Project Management, business series and critical thinking and technical products are exceptional.

  • The investment for many courses may exceed what some companies can budget.

Currently we operate in developing nations. If Skillsoft had a pricing program for those nations versus what they use in the Americas / Europe, we would greatly consider it. Right now though, the Skillsoft pricing, while affordable for advanced nations, is out of reach for the developing nations. We hope that changes.

The integration between the main Skillsoft portal and Books24x7 could use improvement. Most users don't realize there is actually a separate books portal because the link to it is not that visible. Yet, once they discover it, they realize that the books portal is actually easier to use to search for books, ebook summaries, and videos.

Just that it takes a village. It cannot be done alone. Everyone needs to know what you are doing and what their role is in the implementation. Tightly managing the project management schedule and resources is important in ensuring that everything gets done on time, and with quality. Education is KEY

lynda.com is still used at internally along with Skillsoft mainly because much of our staff are visual and gain a lot from the bounty of videos and courses lynda.com has to offer on an array of subject that are not always as technical to the library we posses in Skillsoft.

Udemy is used for different profiles. There are some specific skills that some people need to learn that other platforms don’t offer. On the other hand, this platform is sometimes cheaper than others.

Return on Investment

Skillsoft Leadership Development Program

  • The ability to have on-demand training saves money in not having to have an in-house trainer.
  • Employees can complete training on their own time (even at home), so if they need more time for a training, they can complete it on their own time.

  • The most important impact Udemy has had in our Business is that continuing education is making them happier for a low cost, and everyone can choose a topic of their interest and the interest of the company.
  • It has reduced the amount of people quitting their jobs because we care about their personal growth.
  • Some of our areas have become more efficient.
  • Remember that it is less expensive to train people even if they leave your company than it is having someone not trained with a lack of knowledge in your company!
