    5. 5. Introduction to the players and the project/2 <ul><li>SITUATION: </li></ul><ul><li>The Belgian Ministry of Finance had been relying on classroom-based education to train employees. Some courses had waiting lists of more than 15 months, and many employees lost valuable time traveling to Brussels to take classes. To improve employee productivity and speed education delivery, the Belgian Ministry of Finance wanted to modernize its educational system by introducing e-learning. As the organization considered how to proceed, it was challenged by the lack of an e-learning infrastructure and a workforce that was unfamiliar with information communications technology (ICT). </li></ul><ul><li>SOLUTION: </li></ul><ul><li>The Belgian Ministry of Finance implemented an intranet-based platform based on IBM Workplace Collaborative Learning V2.5 software to deliver and track all e-learning courses. In only two months, IBM Global Business Services was able to implement the new infrastructure, which supports 4,000 employees and accommodates approximately 900 concurrent users. To introduce the solution, the Global Business Services team worked with the ministry to develop a communication plan and campaign to promote e-learning among employees. </li></ul><ul><li>BENEFITS: </li></ul><ul><li>The waiting period for courses in highest demand at the Belgian Ministry of Finance dropped from 15 months to just one month . </li></ul><ul><li>Rather than taking a two-day classroom training session, employees can now complete the necessary training in the office in only 11 hours. </li></ul>
