Dinosaur? Necessary Evil? Critical Strategic Tool?

Is the learning management system (LMS) as we know it dead? Not at all, judging from the number of calls that Clarity Consultants receives each year from clients seeking help with selection, implementation, integration, and maintenance. But although those calls suggest that the LMS is alive and well, they lead to an additional conclusion: selecting and implementing an LMS is difficult. There are many choices on the market, and those choices are morphing into talent management systems, social learning systems, and systems tailored to specific industry verticals.
