Fear of Change in Learning & Development

Your Training Edge

These training programs are based on all types of training, from a 1 day in-house Excel excellence workshop to a yearlong change management initiative. Managing all these complexities have turned out to be quite hard in such rapidly changing times and need changes in skills, behaviors and most importantly mindsets. Employees might take it as stop-down of knowledge management and not show much initiative. Commitment from senior management is not enough.

Regardless, it’s easy to get ignored as soon as they hear ‘learning’ So then you can look at another channel to come in, and the obvious alternative is knowledge management (KM).

How to Make A Thousand Training Videos for YouTube FAST (Customer Story)

Building a knowledge base, or any tools, is pointless if you can’t get user adoption,” said Knerr. “I

I Believe in the Value of Working out Loud

The alternative was poor grades and disappointed parents. In organizations comprised largely of knowledge workers, each with unique responsibilities, tasks may not follow reproducible processes, just as every artist’s creation is unique. Still, every worker’s current activity uses skills developed through past experience, draws upon his or her whole knowledge base, and has some relationship with past and future work of the organization.

Value of Investment (VOI) vs. Return on Investment

Kapp Notes

Perhaps the constant effort to find the ROI of higher education or even training programs is mis-placed, should we be asking ourselves if an alternative exists? The result is that collaboration tools, knowledge management systems, student portals, online communities of practice, streamlined and automated back office services and productivity improvements are now essential determinants of value and effectiveness for today’s community colleges.

Online Learning Space: Why Teachers Should Use It?

ProProfs

With the massive worldwide adoption of the web at the start of the 2000s, a lot of brand new learning technologies were developed, allowing learners and teachers alike to have an alternative experience.

Tacit vs. Explicit Knowledge - Decisions Learning Professionals Make Everyday

Tony Karrer

A post by Jack Vinson pointed me to What's so great about tacit knowledge? and What's So Great About Tacit Knowledge? Basically, a lot of what we do in Workplace Learning is trying to extract tacit knowledge (in people's heads), make it explicit (write it down) and then we even turn it into something that can be learned so it will become tacit knowledge in our learners heads. He essentially argues that its only a matter of cost of extracting tacit knowledge.
