Questions that you need to answer to achieve a clear understanding why you need an LMS in the first place:

#1. What are we looking to achieve from implementing eLearning?

  • Management of training?
  • Cost savings?
  • Regulatory compliance?
  • Tracking training processes?

#2. How will eLearning benefit the overall business objectives?

  • Training aligned to business processes
  • Training aligned to job role competencies
  • Better analytics and correct data.

#3. What additional benefits will eLearning bring to the business?

  • Better trained employees
  • Structured career progression for employees
  • More engaged and happy staff
  • More productive workforce

These are some examples of the questions you need to answer but of course not all. After answering these questions, you will more than likely come up with more yourself.
