A large box retailer is implementing a new learning and development (L&D) software program in their organization. The existing software program is a simple system run by a small team of content designers and trainers, whereas the new program will require highly specializing programming and coding skills outside of the current skill set of the team. Once implemented, the software will require ongoing support from someone with specific and unique coding capabilities. Coding may require a quick turnaround time to keep the system and the connected pieces of training running smoothly.
