Recently SkillSoft held a special call for former Element K Customer Advisory Council members to meet and discuss how the integration of the two companies is progressing. Participants also heard from Scott Eblin – the author of The Next Level: What Insiders Know About Executive Success – on how leading organizations get to the next level, visualize success, and handle disruptive trends.
Jerry Nine -- the Chief Operating Officer at SkillSoft – shared with the council the progress made during the past five months since the acquisition of Element K was announced. During this time SkillSoft has:
- Added over 70 experienced customer-facing and support individuals and over 40 experienced product development individuals to the company.
- Deployed a unified content and platform strategy that focuses on adding approximately 400 Element K courses to the SkillSoft product line and the addition of key capabilities from the KnowledgeHub platform to SkillPort.
- Expanded our investment in innovation with the conversion of over 325 business courses to support devices such as Apple iPad, Blackberry PlayBook and Android tablets.
