(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Learning Management System (LMS), an e-portal for the training of civil servants for effective service delivery, has been inaugurated by the Lagos State Government .
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu launched the e-portal on Wednesday at the Adeyemi Bero Auditorium, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos. It is one of the outcomes of a reform introduced by the Lagos State Government’s civil service to leverage innovation and technology in driving radical change in the public sector and addressing capacity deficit, enhance efficiency and competence among civil servants.
LMS is a technology-driven platform developed with Envivo Communications – a tech firm – to enhance capacity development in the public workforce through continuous training. From the platform, the State Government can seamlessly administer, document, track report and deliver educational courses and training programmes for staff in civil service.
The innovation phases out low training quota in the State’s civil service, in which Lagos Government, prior to the Sanwo-Olu administration, used to train an average of 3,000 staff in four years. With the introduction of LMS, the State can successfully train an average of 50,000 staff of its workforce in a year. Already, 42,446 of the State’s over 150,000 civil servants have been on-boarded on the e-learning portal.
PROJECTED IMPACT: The initiative will raise the bar of service delivery among the civil servants as it will expose the personnel to a wide spectrum of opportunities for enhanced competence and efficiency.
