Uberizing Organizational Learning – Thinking Beyond Courses

ID Reflections

We have to think agile, instant, accessible, contextual, micro-sized, real time… We need to uberize organizational learning. Uberization ” has taken off as the new term that according to me has come to stand for – disruption, innovation, lean operating model, harnessing of the affordances of the sharing economy, and a hyper-connected world driven by imagination and creativity where everything is a mobile-click away – including learning.

The Performance Improvement Blog

One of the barriers to creating and sustaining a learning culture in organizations is the no-time myth. Managers resist attending formal training events and participating in other kinds of learning activities (elearning, mentoring, coaching, action-learning, communities of practice, internal wikis, etc.) using the excuse that they are too busy. In the blog post titled, Are the managers you’re training “too busy”?,

How to Create a Learning Culture in Organizations

The Performance Improvement Blog

Several excellent blog posts have recently come to my attention that, when combined, provide a how-to for creating a learning culture in organizations.

This Is What I Believe About Learning in Organizations

The Performance Improvement Blog

The Purpose of Business is Learning. Yes, the purpose of business is to make a profit, retain customers, be sustainable, satisfy shareholders, and, for some, make a difference in the community. But none of this is possible without learning. At its core, any high performing organization is about learning; continually using new information to become smarter, better, and more effective. Companies must learn more deeply about their customers and markets.

No Time to Learn

The Performance Improvement Blog

One of the concerns that worry training and learning professionals most about leading culture change in their organizations is that managers will say that they don’t have time to facilitate and support employee development. These managers don’t value learning. Maybe there was a time when you could learn a set of skills in your youth and then build a career around those abilities. The only way to keep pace and maybe even get ahead of the curve is to keep learning.

Demystifying Working Out Loud

In this post, I want to demystify working out loud and highlight the organizational as well as personal growth that accrues from the practice. It has helped me to develop my personal learning network (PLN) and enabled my PKM. Disruptive business models are upending traditional org structures. It is perfectly possible to share one’s experience over a “lunch & learn” session; however, if that session can also be aired on Hangout, the impact is amplified tenfold.

A Productive Learning Culture

The Performance Improvement Blog

In a blog post titled, "Building a Productive Learning Culture", Thomas Handcock and Jean Martin say that businesses, because of need and demand, are increasing employee participation in training but failing to increase productivity.

From this study, they conclude: Organizations around the world are struggling to strengthen their leadership pipelines, yet over the past year businesses fell further behind, particularly in their ability to develop Millennial leaders. and then applying that new found learning.

Learn From Success or Learn From Failure: You Decide

The Performance Improvement Blog

We learn more from studying successes than we do from studying failure. We can see this in the contrast between the approach of columnists Dan and Chip Heath and that of Harvard Business School professor Amy Edmondson. Humans have a strong tendency to gravitate to things-gone-wrong when the best course of action often is to learn from things-gone-right. The "report card" for our diet, or our marriage, or our business, is full of Cs and Ds and Fs.

6 Steps To Creating Learning Ecosystems (And Why You Should Bother)

Learnnovators

70:20:10 has shone a spotlight on the limits of formal learning. In contrast, social and experiential learning continue to be veritable goldmines of productivity, placing learners at the centre of their story and demanding a major shift from Learning & Development professionals. Central to this cultural shift is the understanding that learning happens by learners, not to them. That’s where learning ecosystems come in.

Aligning Employee Learning with the Organization

The Performance Improvement Blog

Improving employee learning and performance in organizations today means systems change. I wish it were otherwise, but learning is not just a classroom activity anymore, it must be a total system activity that takes into account strategic goals of the organization, the culture of the organization (values, beliefs, artifacts, structure, etc.), Learning that makes a difference occurs when all of these factors are aligned. .

Leaders Learning about Learning

The Performance Improvement Blog

I explained the limitations of formal training and the need for taking an organizational learning perspective. I argued that in order for any kind of learning intervention (training, coaching, mentoring, action learning, etc.) to have a positive impact on achieving the organization’s goals, managers had to take an active role in supporting learning. They wanted to know specifically what they could do to facilitate learning.

Six Obstacles To Building Communities In Organizations

MAKING BUSINESS DECISIONS: THE HEART AND THE HEAD. Jay Cross examines decision making on learning at work, and gives the lie to some myths about the use of business metrics.

The Great Training Robbery Continues

The Performance Improvement Blog

When I ask the training and development leaders who participate in my ATD Essentials of Developing an Organizational Learning Culture workshop to say what percentage of employees who attend training programs actually apply what they’ve learned on the job, the answers range from about 10% to about 50%, with most at the lower end of that range. Then the training must be followed up with more learning on-the-job.

Organizations Don't Learn

The Performance Improvement Blog

The culture of most organizations prevents them from learning. And without learning they are destined to have disengaged employees, high turnover, low performance teams, unproductive workplaces, inadequate responses to competitive pressures, an inability to keep up with the pace of change, and an unsustainable business. What prevents organizations from learning? They write: Why do companies struggle to become or remain “learning organizations”?

L&D Professionals: From Trainer to Learning Coach

The most important role of L&D professionals is to coach managers in facilitating learning in organizations. The days of instructor-centered employee learning are over. globalization, workforce diversity, hyper-competition, and demands of a new generation of workers make continuous learning the core activity of organizations today. Companies can no longer depend on L&D departments (and serendipity) to meet the evolving learning needs of employees.

Continuous Workplace Learning

The Performance Improvement Blog

I might quibble with Jane Hart’s assertion that continuous learning is a new role for learning and development professionals. And they need L&D professionals to help them with this learning. Hart writes that L&D professionals must change their role in these ways: From “order takers” to business partners [working as a partner with team managers]. From teaching “old skills” to modeling “new skills” [working and learning in a collaborative and networked world].

Evaluating Informal Learning

The Performance Improvement Blog

Informal learning in organizations is finally being recognized as a key aspect of employee development and performance improvement. But how do you evaluate something that is as unpredictable and serendipitous as informal learning? Learning occurs in "informal" (another term that I don’t like but is gaining traction) settings and online, as well as in the classroom. Managers could follow these results for the purpose of assessing impact of team learning.
