Learning Can Help Change, Transformation and Disruption

Measuring Culture Change

Clark Quinn

Someone recently asked how you would go about measuring culture change, and I thought it’s an interesting question.  I’ll think ‘out loud’ about what might be the possibilities.  A learning culture is optimal for organizational innovation and agility, and it’s likely that not all elements are already in place.  So it’s plausible that you’d want to change, and if you do, you’d like to know how it’s going. Culture change is a journey, not an event, after all ;). And indirect would be activity likely to yield that outcome.

Performance Learning Productivity

We know that the results of learning and development activities can only be determined by changes in behaviour (after all, at its heart that’s what ‘real learning’ is) and behaviour change needs to be measured in terms of what individuals, teams and organisations can do and are doing, that they couldn’t do previously, or what they’re doing better than before.

Learning is changing

Learning with e's

Learning is changing. In some ways learning has no need to change. So why am I claiming that learning is changing? This is contentious, but I believe learning is changing because what we can learn no longer has any boundaries. Learning is also changing because we can contribute to knowledge on a global scale. In other ways, it is vital. Unported License.

Clark Quinn

Is there an appetite for change in L&D? There really isn’t any burning desire for change, or willingness to move even if there is. That was the conversation I’ve had with colleagues lately. And I have to say that that the answer is mixed, at best. The consensus is that most of L&D is comfortably numb. That L&D folks are barely coping with getting courses out on a rapid schedule and running training events because that’s what’s expected and known. This is a problem. The sad part of this is the promise of what L&D could be doing. Can we, please? social strategy

Becoming a Social Business – Beyond Culture Change

Learnnovators

We have become accustomed to blaming the culture of an organization for the failure of any initiative, and more so when the change calls for redefining and re-imagining how people work and interact. No matter how hard we try to change the culture – and I do believe that leaders and managers are trying – the discourse we use lets us down.
