In other words, this is a look at the entire system and what you want to accomplish.

Propose a specific 1-2 and a less specific 2-3-year vision.

  1. Ensure tight integration between business, human resources, and knowledge and performance management.
  2. Focus on the learner, learning, and improved performance, not the tools and technology.
  3. Provide evolving policies, systems, strategies, processes, and prototyping that implement products over incremental improvement cycles.
  4. Transition analysis into comprehensive, long-term, evolving problem-solving objectives and strategies (i.e., identify the gaps, fulfill requirements for today, and plan for tomorrow)
  5. Provide strategies for developing on and offline blended solutions that support enterprise-wide infrastructure, individualized environments, supportive online learning relationships, collaboration, communication, and e-learning culture.
  6. Provide strategies (design and technology) for sharing or repurposing resources (e.g., interweave transition between instruction, performance, and knowledge management).
  7. Provide realistic learning and performance objectives and solutions. Measure not only improved business and performance, but also improved online learning ability (more self-motivated, self-directed, and self-assessed learning).
  8. Benchmark today’s solution and provide evaluation criteria for today’s and tomorrow’s evolving solutions.
  9. Consider scalability, security, global standards, global communication and infrastructure, and evolving requirements.
