"Tools and skills are easy-to-fill buckets, but meta-competencies of learning to learn and working in digital networks take significant time, effort, and support to fill. A long-term strategy to support these meta-competencies is lacking in many organizations today. Everyone wants a quick fix. Projects are designed around clear short-term deliverables. Few measure competencies for the long term."

The Management Thinker We Should Never Have Forgotten

The Management Thinker We Should Never Have Forgotten | Learning | Scoop.it

W. Edwards Deming believed that we can improve worker performance only when we improve the entire system they work within. And he believed that managers wrongly apply incentive pay plans, forced rankings, and all sorts of carrots and sticks to create the illusionof control without solving root performance problems.

LearningFlash June 2016: Wake and Grow Up- Learning and Declaration of INDepe... | Learning | Scoop.it
My favorite quote from this issue: “Training (any mode) does not guarantee learning, and learning does not guarantee performance.”

Does the following sound familiar? 
"Here's how it usually plays out- a manager has a problem and it's gnarly. Not only does s/he not know what to do about it, but also doesn't have the capacity or time. Let's call Training! Throw the issue over the cubicle and make sure it lands on another scapegoat- Training is the perfect candidate. Best case, the training works. Worst case, we blame Training for not working."

Best advice in this issue: “Don't start until all stakeholders have agreed to the metrics and how / when they will be measured.” 
Who are your sponsors? Where are the metrics that prove your value to the organization?

Hey everyone,

 

A couple of months ago I was interviewed by sales guru Will Barron over in the UK about increasing sales through storytelling. The interview was published today so I'm thrilled to share it with you.

 

The video is 35 minutes long, and is also available on iTunes for download: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/salesman-podcast-learn-how/id1007344621

 

We had a great time and Will is a terrific interviewer. Enjoy the show and hope you get some great tips :)

Are You Meeting All Five Moments of Learning Need? by Conrad  Gottfredson & Bob  Mosher : Learning Solutions Magazine | Learning | Scoop.it
In this second article in the Performance Support series, the authors ask, “Isn’t it our core mission to develop learning solutions that ensure people can perform effectively when they are called upon to act?” The authors begin to explore what it means to broaden the scope of our work to include the Five Moments of Learning Need.
Elizabeth Bowden's insight:
1. When people are learning how to do something for the first time (New);

2. When people are expanding the breadth and depth of what they have learned (More);

3. When they need to act upon what they have learned, which includes planning what they will do, remembering what they may have forgotten, or adapting their performance to a unique situation (Apply);

4. When problems arise, or things break or don’t work the way they were intended (Solve); and,

5. When people need to learn a new way of doing something, which requires them to change skills that are deeply ingrained in their performance practices (Change).

4 Ways Being An Ambivert Has Helped Me As A Leader

4 Ways Being An Ambivert  Has Helped Me As A Leader | Learning | Scoop.it

Advantages of Being an Ambivert

When you understand what it's like to be both an extrovert and an introvert, it can help you relate to the people you work with better. Especially, if you are in a leadership position.  Here are the ways I've used being an ambivert to my advantage.

 

1) I know when to give introverts time to collect their thoughts. Introverts aren't comfortable being put on the spot. They appreciate time to contemplate and then respond. I allow my introverted coworkers ample time to review and come to their own conclusions so they can feel comfortable articulating their ideas and responses.

 

2) I know when to give extroverts the opportunity to speak their mind. Extroverts want to openly contribute. They are energized by speaking and engaging with others. I create opportunities for my extroverted coworkers to talk and share their thoughts and feelings so they can be heard.

 

3) I can sense when an extrovert is overwhelming an introvert. When an extrovert is spending too much time talking, it can be a major distraction for the introvert. There are times when I need to step in and create opportunities for the introvert to have some quiet time to calm his or her brain.

[PDF] The digital talent gap: Developing skills for today's digital organizations

[PDF] The digital talent gap: Developing skills for today's digital organizations | Learning | Scoop.it
The shortage of digital skills in the current marketplace is unprecedented. It is estimated that over 4.4 million IT jobs will be created around Big Data by 2015; however, only a third of these new jobs will be filled. Martha Lane Fox, the UK’s digital inclusion champion, believes over 16 million people in the UK lack the basic digital skills to fully benefit from the Internet. Even Millenials are a matter of concern. In a survey comprising over 800 middle to upper management executives from over 50 industries, nearly one in five Millenials in the modern workplace are perceived to be lacking in analytical skills.
 
The reasons driving this skills shortage are not hard to identify. The usage of mobile, social and analytical tools is permeating the length and breadth of every function across the organization. Unlike the past, the impact of these digital technologies and tools is felt not just in the IT department. This means that the magnitude of training and re-skilling thatis required is enormous. Moreover, each new technology cycle has brought forth new requirements and these cycles are increasingly getting shorter. Employees must now refresh their skills more frequently if they wish to stay relevant in this rapidly changing digital environment. The head of India R&D Labs of software firm SAP succinctly states: “The shelf life of a software engineer today is no more than that of a cricketer – about 15 years. The 20-year-old guys provide me more value than the 35-year-olds do.
 
Organizations are beginning to recognize the magnitude of the problem. Our own research with the MIT Center for Digital Business has revealed that 77% of companies considered missing digital skills as the key hurdle to their digital transformation. Digital leaders or ‘Digirati’ a are already investing in digital skills and reaping significant benefits in comparison to other companies (see Figure 1). On average, ‘Digirati’ are
26% more profitable than their industry competitors.
 
This skills shortage is creating a ‘war for talent’, where companies have to compete for the best talent with new categories of players. Unlike in the past, the hunt for the best talent is no more limited to localized skills in certain departments. In this case, the talent war is manifest across the entire organization. The important questions are: Do organizations include digital skills as a key component in their workforce plans? Are HR departments equipped and skilled to bring innovative solutions to bridge the digital skills gap? How are Digiratis developing digital skills?

Via Edumorfosis
Elizabeth Bowden's insight:
The Human Resources Function is Not Actively Involved in Digital Skills Development - An added challenge appears to be the fact that HR is not in the driver’s seat when it comes to steering digital skills development. We found that only 30% of organizations have mentioned HR as being actively involved in skills development. So, the question remains who is managing the transformation of skills if it is not HR? In over 60% of the companies we surveyed, it was the senior leadership, IT division, functional teams and employees who were spearheading digital skills development .

"The car mechanic has studied and developed a set of skills. He cares deeply about the problem in front of him, and wants my car to run safely and efficiently. He knows that a bad set of brakes, a failure in the steering, or a host of other issues could literally kill me or others. There’s an analogy here.
