Skillsoft offers their Leadership Development Program, with a number of course offerings featuring scenarios and model behavior, reflection exercises and other curricula to train learning or first-time managers.https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/MR/9K/KJEF54C9MDFP.pngDynamic Duo of a Support TeamWe use Skillsoft as a part of our Learning and Organizational Development department at EnPro Industries. We've had an ongoing contract with them now for going on six years and have been very happy with their products and, especially, their service. We use their Business Curriculum library (online learning) and their Dialogue Design software to create custom content for our organization. We have also used their compliance/Academy product (we recently went with another vendor for the compliance portion, but still have the business courseware). The best and easiest part of working with Skillsoft is their people - my Learning Consultant and Account Representative team are a dynamic duo. We went through a recent revamp of our site and an upgrade to Skillsoft 8.0 and they answered every question or found someone who could and came in with helpful and creative suggestions. Speaking of the upgrade, Skillsoft just launched their new upgraded user interface, which makes them much more user friendly. As an administrator, Skillsoft is easy to use and teach others to use - everyone from our shop floor employees to our Executive staff worldwide uses it for their professional and personal development. All in all, I would recommend Skillsoft.,Customer service/Account representation Provides useful information in the bi-yearly account reviews Updates to courses/content,They are getting better, but keeping up with the IT times and keeping their site modern and user friendly Compliance - we had 2 seperate interfaces between the compliance part (Academy) and the Business Courseware catelog and our custom content - this created a lot of confusion around what was what. Support and the usablility of Academy was not up to par with what we were used to with the normal SkillPort. Technical support doesn't always have the answer,9,Increased participation in employee development Less cost than sending employees out to training Increased knowledge in specific departments (better customer service, financial understanding for non-financial professionals, etc.),,700,20,Organizational/personal development Saving time/money on sending people out to training Ease of use,Custom content - technical/product training,Additional custom content Pre-requisits for external training,9,No,Price Product Usability Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor Analyst Reports,I wouldn't.,Don't know,Java issues - conflicting with other software programs,5,8,8,No,We've had multiple times when they've provided exceptional support. I once accidentally deleted myself as the company administrator (which is not easy to do) and emailed my Learning Consultant - she was at an offsite, company event and took the time to step away and reinstate me in a matter of minutes.,Admin General use,User upload,Yes, but I don't use it,8Skillsoft is Fundamental to your Enterprise Learning StrategySkillsoft learning solutions are utilized across the organization to provide both foundational and specialized curricula for various programs ranging from on-boarding to functional skill development to professional skill development to leadership development. With the large library of courseware, we are able to pull Skillsoft content into our programs and align with our custom developed programs so that we provide a blended and fully rounded program to reinforce learning.,Covers a wide-breadth of topics ranging from desktop / office skills to communications skills to leadership development Offers knowledge portals (Knowledge Centers) around specific topic areas such as Management Development, Six Sigma, Professional Foundations, Sales, etc - that aggregate content from the large Skillsoft resources and present it in a way that is both meaningful and relevant to the learners. Plus, they have editors update the featured topic each month. Include a wide variety of learning media such as eLearning courses, books, book summaries and videos.,Some of the courses are too long - (eg. 4 hours) - however, a learner has the option to only access 1 or more sections making it easier to consume. Some of the courses are outdated and boring. Skillsoft has gradually been updating these courses - but there is still room for improvement. Courses provide a good foundation for learning - but Skillsoft needs to do more to attract millenials with their courseware. Change their contracting to provide pricing more in line with what is needed in developing countries / third world nations.,9,With Skillsoft, we were able to displace over $10M Euros of funding that would've otherwise been spent on Instructor-led courses and purchasing of books. Skillsoft allowed us to build solid and thorough learning maps so that employees knew what learning they needed in order to advance their career. By utilizing Skillsoft's Leadership Advantage, we were able to impact the skills and knowledge of our leaders in a short amount of time. Having this resource available, our leaders were able to access a resource and get their answer in just minutes rather than doing their own research or attending a training class. With Skillsoft, we were able to quickly get new employees up to speed and functioning.,Mindtools,5,25000,2,Providing a foundational learning map for all employees Displacing costs of other L&D solutions, such as ILT and books. We displaced over $10M Euros in costs that would've been otherwise spent. Using deep links, we were able to reinforce messages / email / announcements from our Executive Team to help people learn about the topic. For example, when the financial crisis of 2008 hit, we were able to provide key Skillsoft resources to enable leaders to lead in a crisis.,Deep links for embedding Skillsoft resources into Executive Team announcements / emails / etc. Provided an additional resource to help people learn more about the topic. Customizing the Knowledge Centers helped us align them to our custom built programs thus providing a common look and feel. Having our CEO videotaped and including his messages in the Skillsoft Leadership Channel videos.,More customization of Knowledge Centers Implementation of InGenius throughout the Enterprise Integration of Skillsoft resources into our other blended programs,No,Product Features Vendor Reputation,Would not change a thing.,Implemented in-house,Change management was a major issue with the implementation,Lots of time spent marketing and managing the change across the enterprise. Educating everyone on this new solution and how to use it. Getting our single sign-on to work properly with our tight security system.,9,Yes,10,No,We had some very difficult issues with single sign-on due to our companies security system. Skillsoft support engineers were extremely diligent in working with our IT team to ensure this was corrected satisfactorily with our security team. My team and I felt that no matter what the issue, Skillsoft went over and above to help us resolve it.,Search and Go tool is very easy to use and intuitive Chapters to Go feature, which allows a user to download a book chapter, is very easy to perform Playing a video works extremely well and is self explanatory,Having to switch from the main portal to Books24x7 is cumbersome - however once in the books portal, it is easy to find stuff Having to use the Skillsoft course player is sometimes difficult as it may have problems if your PC isn't setup properly Logging into the Skillsoft portal requires the correct level of Java and that you have pop-ups turned off. Users have difficulty with this at times.,Yes, but I don't use it,8
