The 0% Solution to Learning

The Peformance Improvement

The implication of striving for an “isolation score of zero” is that the whole organization owns learning, not just HR and the CLO, and when the organization needs performance improvement, training is not the first course of action.

You see in Linkedin groups – go check out the ASTD Linkedin group and see how many times they focus on ILT vs WBT. Until a few years ago, ASTD didn’t offer a standalone E-Learning conference, yet e-learning has been around for more than a dozen years. ASTD is not the only ones. E-Learning (web based) has been in existence for more than 12 years, yet its impact in terms of the masses is still relatively low in comparison with other training approaches. Within the e-learning space, there has been fast adoption with social learning and with mobile learning. ILT. .

Think about it at the next CLO Symposium. A landmark study by ASTD and IBM interviewed CLOs and CxOs at 26 leading companies across 11 industries (see The C-level and the Value of Learning , T+D magazine, October 2005). C-level officers want their CLO to build the foundation for transforming the company not just to get people up to speed on today’s needs. Try it.

It focuses the CLO on performance and outcomes that are important to the organization, and it helps CLOs translate learning into business imperatives that appeal to and are understood by the decision-makers and influencers in their organization.

The Picture Is Bigger Than It Appears

CLO Magazine

Our 2012 CLO of the Year, Pat Crull, group vice president and chief learning officer of Time Warner Cable (TWC), certainly exemplifies this kind of visionary, holistic leadership. As the company’s first CLO, she built it from scratch, taking ownership of TWC’s organizational-effectiveness efforts and diversity and inclusion practices along with learning and development. While I have no vote in the CLO of the Year selection, I am thrilled to see someone I admire so deeply receive the recognition. It means seeing the forest as well as the trees.

What Can You Expect in 2013?

CLO Magazine

According to the 2011 ASTD State of the Industry report, many organizations are investing in technology-based delivery systems and methods, relying on technology to deliver content through social media tools. The CLO role is shifting from a learning mindset around a curriculum to a mindset of developing a highly proficient workforce to support the business. Apps, videos and more sophisticated blended learning and collaboration schemes are just a few of the learning trends to watch and implement in the next year. With mobility, learning and work are not conducted in isolation.

Top eLearning Sites?

Tony Karrer

And there are sites like ASTD that go well outside the world of eLearning. e.g., ASTD (which has good traffic), CLO Media (which doesn’t seem to have good traffic volume) Sites that I can’t get accurate numbers separate from the base site. Learning Circuits is part of ASTD. I was asked what the biggest traffic sites are in eLearning that were not vendor specific sites.

Essential Reading (and Other Skills) for Staying Ahead in the Learning Space


Another way I stay current is by networking with industry professionals, attending conferences, and participating in discussion groups on Linkedin, the CLO Network and on #lrnchat , a Twitter chat of learning professionals.

Give Back to the Profession

CLO Magazine

The American Society for Training & Development, or ASTD, does its part by recognizing a top dissertation each year.

Establishing Connections on LinkedIn

I started off by joining the ASTD, and CLO groups and I think I'll look into the eLearning Guilds group next. Everybody talks about how great LinkedIn is so a while back I set up an account to see what everybody was talking about. And that's about as far as I went, I set up an account then didn't really know what to do with it. I found that without connections it's hard to make any use out of it. So that raises the question; how do you establish connections on LinkedIn? Here's what I did to start establishing connections whose expertise I might be able to tap into.

Big Dog, Little Dog

One of the first definitions for e-learning is ASTD's , who define it as covering a wide set of applications and processes, such as Web-based learning, computer-based learning, virtual classrooms, and digital collaboration. ASTD's definition is somewhat different in that it basically defines anything that is electronic (electronic learning) as e-learning. Comments welcomed
