About a month ago, I was soaking up the rays on a beautiful beach in Mexico when I started receiving a series of texts and phone calls on my personal mobile number from an automotive sales rep that I’ll name “Jim”. I had no idea how he got my number and, since I was trying to take a break from work, I let him know that when I got back from my vacation, I’d follow-up with him.
But Jim persisted; he didn’t want to wait. He works for an organization that had started a pilot program with Axonify, but got cold feet about moving forward, despite incredibly positive feedback and results. The L&D team simply could not get past the significant investment they’d made years earlier in their LMS. Part of that was a deeply embedded “check-the-box” course completion mentality, even though the LMS had become a largely administrative tool. They’d become out of touch with the needs of their employees who require and desire so much more than their LMS could deliver.
