Design Thinking Culture Change in IBM

The Performance Improvement Blog

The need for creating and sustaining a learning culture in organizations is critical given the rise of digital technology, the rapid pace of change, the complexities of globalization, and the growing development demands of a diverse workforce. However, the challenge of changing the culture of an organization can seem overwhelming, especially if you work in a large, established, conventional company. To try to change a culture in a company that size is a daunting task.”.

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.

Pull, Don’t Push, Employee Learning

The Performance Improvement Blog

* This post first appeared in The Business Thinker and The Knowledge Star Blog and is co-authored by David Grebow. The major change in business today is the rate of change. Now, crowdfunding can raise millions of dollars for a new business in a few weeks." – John Psarouthakis. In a push training model, learning is test-based. The push training culture was developed to serve the old Industrial Economy that no longer exists.

Re-thinking Learning and Performance from a Business Standpoint

ID Reflections

Yesterday, I wrote a post on Learning vs. Performance – the Dichotomy. It was more of a theoretical exposition on why learning doesn’t necessarily translate into performance, and delved into some of the psychological and behavioral aspects of the same. Why is it that learning and training don’t translate into performance? Why are businesses failing? In today’s post, I have tried to analyze the learning – performance dichotomy from a more practical standpoint.

2015 - Year of the Learning Culture

The Performance Improvement Blog

The theme that cuts across most of my blog posts from last year is creating and sustaining a learning culture in organizations. As a way of review, I’ve selected five blog posts about a learning culture from 2015 that have the most interest for readers. Training Culture vs. Learning Culture What’s the difference between a “training culture” and a “learning culture”?

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. Learning isn’t in addition to a manager’s job; it IS a manager’s job. An engineer in a prototype department of a manufacturer learns how to operate a 3D printer.

How Fostering A Learning Culture Will Help Your Organization Grow!

TalentLMS

We’re talking, of course, about organizational culture. Organizational What? Initially sidelined as a ‘wishy-washy HR concept’, organizational culture has earned its recognition as one of the most influential assets an organization can possess today. A unique, immeasurable combination of the shared intellect, informal habits, attitudes and knowledge that shape how you do business. Because cultures come in different forms. Learn New Habits.

Learning to Lead in the Time of Disruption

Uber and Lyft have disrupted urban transportation, online banking and investing have disrupted the financial services industry, self-driving cars are disrupting the automobile industry, drones are threatening to disrupt the package delivery business, specialty drop-in health clinics are disrupting health care, Fiverr is disrupting the creative services business, Warby Parker has disrupted the retail eyeglass business. Nearly every business has or will have a disrupter.

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.

50 Ways to Lever Learning

The Performance Improvement Blog

In a learning culture , formal training is just one of many methods used to facilitate employee learning. In a learning culture, we start with the performance goal and then select the mix of methods that will help employees acquire and retain the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and beliefs they need in order to achieve those goals. Instructor-centered class (fact to face) – traditional classroom in which instructor controls the content and learning process.

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.

Integrating Social Learning In The Workplace

Learnnovators

I have been writing about social learning and its related concepts – communities of practices , working out loud and skills for the networked world for quite some time now. Social learning has become a buzzword in the workplace learning space, and every other organization is claiming to have “social learning” as a part of the mix. The catch is that “social learning” cannot just be implemented or enforced. How is this change related to social learning?

Games To Gamification

Learnnovators

Then, as man evolved to the agrarian stage, around 12,000 years ago, he learned to domesticate a few animals and, alongside, grow crops. Archaeological evidence shows that games and sports were an integral part of all ancient cultures. So we know that game based learning and gamification are not new. With so many types of games and sports, there should be no dearth of ideas to gamify the learning of a subject in educational and business settings.

Which Comes First? Diversity or Inclusion?

NovoEd

Inclusive and diverse work environments positively impact the bottom line for business. Less clear is how to bring about the cultural and behavioral changes needed in the workplace for the benefits of diversity to emerge. While forward progress is needed on both diversity and inclusion initiatives, organizational learning and development is critical to the development of the inclusive work cultures needed to ensure diversity initiatives thrive.

Collaboration, Communication, and Cooperation

Clark Quinn

In thinking about the Coherent Organization , the original proposal from my colleague Harold Jarche was that were two key attitudes: collaboration and cooperation. It’s time to try to reconcile those, and propose why I think collaboration is a new business watchword. He’s nurturing a culture, and I’m about developing practices. So perhaps I’ll talk about organizational learning for the long term, and use collaboration for the short term work.

L&D's Role in the VUCA World: Part 1

ID Reflections

Each area is critical today in building an organization and an organizational culture that will not only attract the best employees but will also provide them with the necessary platform to give their best. An organization may attract the best and then lose them due to an overly repressive culture, a hierarchical structure or a closed environment. However, one thing I am sure of is that we have to experiment, fail fast and learn from failures.

How microlearning can result in deep learning

Classical philosophy posits that any meaningful learning must combine an existential knowledge of the self alongside the cognitive domain. In this sense, deep learning goes beyond learning ‘content,’ and is more concerned with the gaining of long-term wisdom and critical competencies that interact with our environment and can be transferred and revised in different contexts. How does microlearning support deep learning? . Deep learning strategies .
