Re-thinking Workplace Learning: extracting rather than adding | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

A decade ago the Corporate Executive Board published a report detailing the findings of a study into the role managers can play in employee development.

 

By almost any standards the sample in this study was large – 8,500 cases drawn from 14 organisations across six industries in nine countries.

One clear finding presented was that:

 

“those activities that are integrated into manager and employee workflow have the largest impact on employee performance, while those that are distinct events separate from the day-to-day job have less impact.

Individual Management Learning - the new LMS? | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Learning can only be managed by the individual in whose head the learning is occurring.

Of course external factors – such as other people (especially your manager and your team), technology, prevailing culture, general ‘environmental’ factors, and a range of different elements – can support, facilitate, encourage, and help your learning occur faster, better, with greater impact and so on.  But they can’t manage the learning process for you. That’s down to you alone.
