AGILE Is As AGILE Does

Living in Learning

As with earlier conferences that I’ve spoken at this year, there is once again a lot of buzz around the concept of AGILE. AGILE what? That is a key question to ask because from what I’m seeing, not all AGILE approaches are scoped equally when it comes to learning and performance solutions.

Agile Learner; Agile Leader

The Performance Improvement Blog

I have to admit that prior to hearing Elliott Masie talk about “learning agility” last week at the virtual Human Captial Media Symposium for CLOs , the concept was not on my radar. However, aspiring to be agile myself (mentally and physically), I’m willing to learn something new and, maybe, discard some old notions about human development and leadership. It appears that there are at least three definitions of learning agility being used in the field.

Everything You Should Know About Agile eLearning Before Investing

Your Training Edge

Agile eLearning is a critical attribute in today’s learning that has been greatly enhanced through technology. In agile eLearning , the content of a given course is created by use of short and iterative cycles that are usually referred to as sprint. The importance of agile eLearning is that it has a greater focus on such attributes as regular feedbacks, speedy prototypes, collaboration, as well as shortening the development time of a training course.

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.
