Financial and investment analysis firm Standard & Poor's Corp. is to ramp up its online training provision through the adoption of an learning management system (LMS). The firm hopes that the expansion of its corporate university will make the training offered to its 5,000 global workforce more consistent. Most of the e-learning content on the system will be constructed in-house due to the highly technical and specialized nature of the courses, many of which deal with statistics.
