Remove Attitudes Remove Environment Remove Groupware Remove Informal Learning

The Learning Circuits

I'd like to follow up on my last post and also weigh in on the question of investment in formal training and informal learning. Jack Welch used a much softer and holistic approach at GE, where, as we now know, there was a strong emphasis on informal communication and bottom-up creativity, aiming at creating a learning culture. Imagine my disappointment to discover their attitude was unanimously blasé and even dubitative.
