The new tool helps match initiatives with employees.

GeoLearning, Inc., a leading developer of e-learning systems and Web-based training solutions, has unveiled MyPlan, a Web-based competency management tool that enables organizations to better match initiatives with the best employees, select qualified employees internally, carry out succession planning and perform career management and employee development.

A component of the company's GeoLearning Center and GeoExpress learning management platforms, the integrated module is delivered using the same application-service-provider model and requires no end-user software or plug-ins.

"The power of MyPlan lies it its flexibility and ease of use," said FrankRussell, president and CEO of GeoLearning. "Whether an organization uses Management By Objectives (MBO), a competency model, skill set assessments, certification, self-directed development, or a combination of methods to manage employee performance and development, MyPlan can be used to more effectively link corporate objectives and strategies to skill development activities."

MyPlan enables managers and employees to develop competency plans, add individual learning tasks, assign due dates and provide advance reminders via e-mail. Tasks and events may include any number of e-learning courses, instructor-led classes, tests, assignments, surveys and physical media tracked via the GeoLearning LMS, thereby supporting a fully blended approach to learning and development.

System administrators and managers can also generate reports on individual employees or groups of employees to use in career management and employee development planning, candidate selection, skill reviews, managing professional and technical certifications, and tracking re-certification deadlines and regulatory compliance.
