Manager's Role in Learning and Performance Improvement

The Performance Improvement Blog

What should be a manager’s role in employee learning? In answering this question, the first thing managers have to understand is that continuous learning is the modus operandi for all high performance organizations. Individual, team, and enterprise performance can’t improve without learning. By “learning” I mean acquiring the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and beliefs that help individuals, teams, and whole organizations improve performance.

Learning Agility and its Role in Leadership

CLO Magazine

Learning agility, which focuses on the ability to perform in the future, provides an answer. Warner Burke, professor of psychology at Columbia University, has studied learning agility for six years and describes it as being in an unfamiliar situation, not knowing what to do and figuring it out. Ross School of Business, summarizes learning agility as involving two elements — speed and flexibility. Performance risk taking.

Leveraging the Capabilities of AGILE Instructional Design Strategies

eLearning Brothers

For many learning organizations, the term “AGILE” has become a hot topic. Often, when referred to in a business sense, AGILE strategies tend to focus on more project management or software development areas (such as with achieving continuous improvement, maintaining scope, increasing flexibility, obtaining team inputs, and with delivering high-quality products) than on instructional design strategies. Does this model support or hinder the learning experience?

Is Agile Methodology Lipstick on the Training Pig?

Learning Agility: Re-Invention with Performer Support

Living in Learning

After sitting on a similar panel the previous year, I noticed immediately that the role played by just-in-time learning had increased in these three leading companies. Two reasons: Traditional approaches to learning still fall short on delivering sustained performance. In other words, learning must be designed for consumption in (or near) the workflow – learning needs to be agile. When and where we support the performer becomes a crucial design consideration.

Learning Technology: How it can support workers to deliver results

Docebo

For L&D to remain relevant, we need to develop new, business-focused and technology-enabled ways to support workers (and how they work) to deliver business results. Beyond automation, the increasing power of machine learning, AI and other new technologies offer L&D a multiplicity of ways to improve organizational performance and support learning at ‘the speed of business.’. Learning and development’s future is set to be impacted by three key factors. .

Agile Teams Create Agile Learning Organizations

CLO Magazine

Agility is the emerging trend for companies in thinking about how they structure teams to accomplish work. Agile methodology began with software development, but, with its focus on adapting to change rather than following a process, it has become relevant in other areas as well. Radical changes will be necessary for companies to become agile learning organizations that will be able to continuously learn and adjust to disruptions more swiftly.

What Agile Means to Me

Needless to say, an understanding (albeit very rudimentary) of the Agile philosophy supersedes all other learning (and that has been plentiful too).

This is the state of being truly adaptive and agile. Expertise KM learning Agile Workplace Learning

Performance Support Second?

Clark Quinn

I previously argued that social should be our first recourse in addressing performance and learning needs. But also, unless we absolutely need a course, we should look to performance support next. Frankly, the learner ideally gets the minimal amount of help to get past their current gap, and if it’s a bit of information or decision support help, why would you make a course if you can avoid it?
