Our client, a globally renowned strategic communications firm with deep local roots in the world’s key corporate and financial centers across 12 countries and a partner of the world’s third-largest communications group. Our client encountered unique challenges in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. They urgently required the implementation of a comprehensive Learning Management System (LMS) to efficiently organize training sessions with subject matter experts and preserve a repository of past sessions.
Scope of Work

The result was the adoption of an agile and accelerated four-week implementation plan known as “NOW.” Within this framework, our dedicated implementation team prioritized several key tasks:
- Training Material Management: A paramount focus was placed on uploading and meticulously organizing training materials. This ensured their accessibility to specific user groups.
- Instructor Led Training (ILT): The ILT functionality was configured to facilitate seamless and effective instructor-led training sessions.
- Virtual ILT Integration (vILT): Our experts seamlessly integrated virtual Instructor Led Training (vILT) sessions with Microsoft Teams, facilitating remote learning and collaboration.
