General Motors Digital Transformation Initiatives

About the Customer

General Motors Company, commonly referred to as General Motors, is an American multinational corporation headquartered in Detroit that designs, manufactures, markets, and distributes vehicles and vehicle parts, and sells financial services.

Scope and Challenges

As a part of their digital transformation, the company sought to create a more efficient e-learning program and reduce the redundancies of its various legacy solutions to address the needs of a global workforce.

Four primary technical areas were identified in need of extensive certification resources and to support corporate objectives with better ROI including finance, IT, Six Sigma and project management.

Outcome and Implications

Automating processes with improved employee access means that not only are career advancement goals and certifications achieved more effectively, but a personal development within the company has also improved.

This deployment from Skillsoft has provided GM with better cost savings, improved IT, project management and finance manager productivity. As a subset of IT productivity, performance improvements within the company’s specialized Six Sigma data analysis certification program has driven faster, more precise decision making across the organization.


“The scope and breadth of GM’s business enterprise require a skilled labor pool and an improvement in ongoing finance and time costs associated with physical learning materials and training time spent away from the workplace, including books and travel expenses. Skillsoft built a learning model that efficiently spans all technical business lines across all business units." - said Barbara Peck, an analyst at Nucleus Research (a global provider of investigative, case-based technology research and advisory services).
