Your LMS in one form or another sits in the cloud too. Clouds are great because they are not location tied (just look up if you don't believe me and watch them move - unless like me you live in Tauranga in New Zealand because we don't have clouds here). So the cloud-based system from a user or administrator function has no geographical location (if not, you may want to look at how your system is set up). This means that your LMS is truly ready for a functional lead rather than a geographic one so we don't have to use the excuse of location when we set up the LMS or the team that administer or use it. It also means that you can (and should) align your LMS with your learning functional lead wherever possible to maximise its effectiveness.
Finally functions, just like clouds, should spread across all regions and areas wherever possible - the same is true of your LMS if you want it to be truly successful and aligned with your strategic direction.
