“Simply the best session for me, of the entire conference.”
“Well delivered. I like Katrina’s sense of humor.”
“Very knowledgeable and engaging speaker. Loved her war stories. Her tips will be very useful for me.”
“I needed this session about a year and a half ago when I took a job that included a disaster of an LMS implementation. Every bit of the content was great and I bought the book.”
“...Katrina did a stellar job and this session, by far, was the highlight of my time at ASTDTK2014.”
“Extremely useful information since my company is in the process of selecting a new LMS.”
Book Review Excerpt (Taken from Amazon.com) “Easy to read, the book focuses on much more than the technology. It also helps you think through the needs of the ‘people side’ of the LMS, from change management, to getting executive buy-in, to ways to encourage the students to accept the new system. Ms. Baker's experience with LMS's shows, as does her sense of humor."
