Pharma companies use Learning Management Systems (LMS) as vital tool for demonstrating to regulatory authorities that they are maintaining and ensuring their staff training efforts are up-to-date. Most LMS systems frequently claim unlimited functionality and scalability but have limitations that companies should be aware of in order for them to overcome and be able to use effectively. One of the most problematic areas in most LMS systems is the development of the training curricula. Every system presents its own unique challenges and eats into time which one does not anticipate. Moreover, many of us have training as an ancillary responsibility and we do not have the luxury of time to create and maintain a complex array of curricula.
