LMS RFP

Tony Karrer

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.

Request for Proposal (RFP) Samples

Tony Karrer

Based on my post LMS RFP , I've been asked several times if I knew where you could find samples of Request for Proposals (RFPs) for custom eLearning development, performance support tools, learning content management systems (LCMS), elearning authoring tools , etc. This trick works really well when you are searching for content on a wide variety of things, often I add in filetype:ppt as well to find presentations.

LMS Selection Presentation Reformulated

Tony Karrer

Confusing an RFI and an RFP. Putting the wrong requirements in an RFP. Making an RFP that will make vendors hate you. Writing an RFP that won't help you differentiate between vendors. Missing a few critical questions in the RFP or selection process. Topic #5 - Writing a Good RFP The RFP strikes me as being a big enough topic on it's own.

LMS Selection Process

Tony Karrer

I'm going to create notes in my blog as a series of posts as I think about what I'll present and then I'll turn them into slides. Help me make this presentation better. I truly need to get input or this could be a boring session - and I don't like boring sessions - see my reservations about the presentation below. Reservations: I'm somewhat concerned that there's no good way to capture this stuff in a presentation that will be meaningful and useful.

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. 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. Ideally, our practice has us performing in ways that are like the ways we perform in the real world.

How long does it take to select an LMS?

Tony Karrer

Tail of Process - Demos, Hands-on Testing, Negotiation The tail of Bryan's process is: Week 9 - Read and Grade Proposals Week 10 - Final meeting to pick system (Bryan has demos in Week 5) The tail of my process has: Demos Pilot or hands-on tests Negotiate Final selection Bryan talks about having demos earlier in the process: In my model, I have learned the value of moving the demo upfront, rather than waiting until after the RFP.

I was overheard to have said…

Doc Searls

Nice interview with Dan Levy of Sparksheet : From Part I : What opportunities does the widespread adoption of mobile smartphones present for VRM? For example, we’ll want one easy way to issue a personal RFP, or to store and selectively share personal data on an as-needed basis. This is the limitless sweet spot for VRM. Humans are mobile animals. We were not built only to sit at desks and type on machines, or even to drive cars.

Doc Searls

Searls does a great job presenting complex (and often crushingly boring) economic theory in ways that make sense to casual readers. Like”) and exercise their consumer power by broadcasting their intent via a sort of online RFP (Request for Proposal). The Intention Economy came out on Tuesday, and coverage has been spreading. Meanwhile, while I’ve been busy at IIW , where VRM mojo has been major. Notes from the many VRM sessions at #IIW14 will appear on this page soon.

I’ve been thinking around the ways to use social learning to augment formal learning, and it’s bringing interesting things together.
