How A Culture Of Learning Makes Teams More Productive

How A Culture Of Learning Makes Teams More Productive | Learning & Organizational Development | Scoop.it

Make it okay to ask questions

 

“We have weekly Q&A sessions where the whole company comes together. This was true when we were 20 people and it’s true now when we’re closer to 100. People can ask questions of [CEO Adam D'Angelo], of other managers, or each other. It's really about being encouraging of what people what to know about in the company.

 

The second area is making it okay to ask outside. We feel comfortable consulting with other companies we might have some connections with, where they might have similar challenges, where we might learn if we share best practices with each other. An example: Recently, we hosted a roundtable where startups came to Quora to talk about infrastructure. A lot of us use Amazon Web Services and we were starting to think about how we could improve cost. We wanted to learn from bigger companies and smaller companies what they had taken on."

This article is give us four ideas of been  learnt more productive as a team from other culture. Ask questions is good and to be encouraged  to do it. And trust people can learn whether where they belong to the   Culture, investing people to learn. Other idea is that creating the opportunity  to help the team to learn, and able to get feedback from people very fast and efficiently. The process of getting data includes running experiences, getting data, getting feedback and tackling the problems. Finally the important factor of culture learning is that learning to prioritize proper.

 

All of those ideas show that the team have an attitude of dealing prioritized questions and data throughout the culture learning.

it is also about the two channels of communications in the team to better serve a company been more productive.

John Michel's curator insight, September 20, 2014 9:18 AM

You can’t really learn in a vacuum--the more opportunities you have to practice, the more you can learn. One big aspect for that is making sure you have the ability to get feedback really quickly.

Joyce Valenza's curator insight, March 27, 2014 8:57 AM

Are we using the right metrics to evaluate the success of MOOCs?

"Stephen Downes hits the nail on the head in a new post about this issue, Like reading a newspaper. If we compare a regular course to a book which must be read from cover to cover then a MOOC is more like a newspaper that you read very selectively. . . Downes suggests that the connectivist MOOCs he's associated with offer learners a range of learning paths and a flexibility in approach that is unlike a regular course."

With many developing nations having strong roots in critical and libration pedagogies its not surprising this situation arises.  The teacher as little more than a subject matter expert has had little relevance to education for half a century at least.
