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.

Bigger is not better

Harold Jarche

There is a belief that large companies have to buy products and services from other large companies. I have worked on both sides of the RFP/Proposal & purchasing/selling continuum. Often, it excluded the product or services that we, the operational users, really wanted. 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.

responding to an RFP) that has enough deliberate ambiguity to generate productive discussion is great. I recall an academic colleague who responded to my query about not using games by relating how expensive digital production was, but how inexpensive group activity was.

Comment: Did you struggle with how it is that we're talking about knowledge, which feels like a product these days, and how you feel about the learning in social organizations, that may never become a product. How do you evaluate the learning that comes out of a social movement, which is not a product. We can look at the product, but we can ask, how did we get to this point. Learning there is not looked at as a product.
