JUNE 19, 2009 Making Your L&D Department Meaningful & Relevant
Fewer had The UK CIPD’s 2009 annual survey published in April also indicated that biggest change anticipated by L&D managers over the next five years is a closer integration of learning and development activity with business strategy (65%). It’s a good question to ask. There’s no silver bullet solution for increasing the impact and the profile of L&D. Action 1. It is 3-tiered.

DECEMBER 1, 2009 TRUST – if L&D is to have any impact, it's vital
Trust is very important in our lives. As children we put our trust in our parents. As we grew we learned to make decisions regarding when we should trust and when we should be more circumspect. When we start a new job or project we spend time figuring out who we can turn to for advice, who we can trust, and whose advice we need to double-check. think we're all aware of that. The difference is this.

MAY 29, 2009 Accountability for Business Results
UK politicians have been in the spotlight over the past few weeks with their creative use of the parliamentary allowance scheme. Flipping” was one common way that some found to maximise their allowance income. Then they’d “flip” and claim expenses on the other house. This was a really neat, if totally immoral and possibly illegal, way to spend taxpayers’ money. That’s the way found it at Reuters.

- performance.learning.productivity: Getting to the Core of Learning Content in the Internet Age
There is an argument that we all need to learn less if we want to know more. The ‘learning’ referred to here is what we know as formal structured learning activities - classes, courses, programmes, and eLearning. The argument goes like this. Although formal learning only constitutes about 10-20% of the actual learning that occurs in organisations, it’s the visible part of the iceberg and the part where most of the budget and L&D resource is focused. When we look at the structured learning taking place in organisations we find that the vast majority is content-rich and interaction-poor. MORE >>
- The Power of X – Experiential Learning in Today’s World
It’s generally accepted that most of the learning that occurs within our organisations takes place outside formal training and learning events. The majority of our learning comes from the new and different experiences we have in our daily work. Our learning also comes from practice and from conversations and from taking the opportunity to reflect on our experiences and on those of others. Good managers do this in a number of ways. Of the three actions that have most impact, two involve experiential learning. The table below shows the top three actions this research uncovered. MORE >>

- 70 years on and still relevant: The Sabre-Toothed Future
This first post is a long one. certainly expect my regular jottings to be more succinct. But I thought it a good starting point for a new blog about performance, learning and productivity. In early 1939 McGraw-Hill published a profound little book that should be on the reading list of everyone involved in learning and training today. Copies can still be found in dusty bookstores and even on Amazon at times. Selling at $1, this book was a light satire on education and educators that carried a heavy, and still very relevant, message. It’s called ‘ The Saber- Toothed Curriculum’. MORE >>
- What Does a 21st Century L&D Department Look Like?
A month ago, on April 21, Jay Cross at learntrends co-ordinated a round-the-globe series of online conversations on how learning can impact performance in organisations. Starting on the US West Coast and ending somewhere east of New Zealand, these virtual conversations opened up a whole Pandora’s Box of issues around the challenges and opportunities that learning & development faces if it is to really have an impact of organisational effectiveness. Jay’s reflections on the event are worth reading. Here are some of the core capabilities identified: 1. the ability to ‘speak business’. MORE >>
