Continuing on from my earlier posts: LMS Selection Presentation Reformulated LMS Selection Team and Stakeholders LMS Selection Process From several comments and from looking at my list of issues, I realize that writing a good LMS RFP is challenging and it's easy to make lots of mistakes. LMS RFP Resources John Theis wrote a dissertation on the contents of 25 RFPs submitted to an LMS vendor. But, what I see as the most common problem in LMS RFP documents are the requirements.

Light Rail Heavy Force Now

Nine Shift

The city has announced an RFP (request for proposals) for a company to build a non-stop light rail service from downtown Chicago to O'Hare Airport. And the other way of course. From grocery store in - - Portland of course. Here's the latest light rail news: 1.Los Angeles.

The RFP is for a measurement framework that reflects current industry standards. of course, there has to be something to curate, and that is only available when most people in the organization freely share.

Amazon's New HQ

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The Request for Proposals (RFP) identifies a desire for a metro area of a million people or more "with the potential to attract and retain strong technical talent." Canada also offers a number of advantages not listed specifically in the RFP. Every Amazon employee in Canada comes to the workplace with a lifetime of public health case support, and of course public health insurance continues while they are on the job. Originally published on CanTech Letter.

Model responses

Clark Quinn

I’m talking about things like writing up an RFP, or a response letter, or creating a presentation, or responding to a live query. We did this in a course on speaking, where learners ultimately dialed into an answering machine, listened to a question, and then spoke their responses. I was thinking about how to make meaningful practice, and I had a thought that was tied to some previous work that I may not have shared here. So allow me to do that now.

Bigger is not better

Harold Jarche

I have worked on both sides of the RFP/Proposal & purchasing/selling continuum. However, most large corporations and government agencies write their requestes for proposals (RFP) in such a way as to exclude small operators, thinking that they are mitigating their risks. Common business wisdom used to be that nobody gets fired for buying IBM. Implicit in this statement is that it’s best not to rock the boat if you want to keep your job.

Rapid Learning Management Systems

Tony Karrer

Two years ago, after quite a bit of discussion with most people who had this general question, I would figure out that it was going to be relatively easy for them to figure out how to author the eLearning courses, but it was going to be a harder decision on how to get that posted somewhere and available to their existing or new clients. So here are some of the requirements I see for this customer that are a bit different from what you would find in a normal corporate LMS RFP.

The Outcome of Our Outcomes

The most important question to ask yourself before you start: If measurement shows you are not on track to achieve your goals, are you willing to change course or establish new goals altogether? It’s a preamble to an RFP. Flickr Photo By Mastery of Maps.

eLearning Portal Integration

Tony Karrer

These discussions center on what requirements should go into an LMS RFP and more broadly how the LMS should really be integrated into the organization. Many LMS vendors provide portlets, gadgets or widgets that allow for access of learning content (most often meaning courses and courseware) through the corporate portal. the general conclusion was that the LMS was really about housing finished course materials that need close tracking.

Also at the complex end, you should be able to issue a “personal RFP&# in the form of a request to the whole market for something you’re ready to buy, without having to go into a silo such as eBay or Amazon. Conversation of the figurative sort, of course, is what this is about.
