Want Results? Champion the Informal - Chief Learning Officer, Solutions for Enterprise Productivity

Want Results? Champion the Informal - Chief Learning Officer, Solutions for Enterprise Productivity | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

From Jay Cross, 21/2/14

"Formal gets all the money, but today more learning happens outside classrooms.

 

Learning is more important than ever. We have an information explosion. The world is becoming more complex. We have to learn more just to keep living our lives. That doesn’t mean we need more from training departments, however.We need to pay more attention to experiential learning, and we need to look at peer-to-peer learning. A lot of the courses out there are absolute garbage. Worse, if you look at behavior on the job, you’d be lucky to find 15 percent of outcomes are based on something learned in a course.


A formal learning structure is not a good model for learning today. Instead, look at ways people can accelerate learning. Have managers set stretch goals for employees and encourage individual initiative."

John Bostock's insight:

Some forthright views here that counter the increasing institutionalization of learning and place the emphasis on real business outcomes!
