Corporate Learning Long Tail and Attention Crisis

Tony Karrer

The average knowledge worker has access to an increasingly large set of information resources and corporate learning is an ever smaller part of this set.

Tom Spiglanin

The answer lies across several domains of a knowledge worker’s practice. These are good practices that help us grow our knowledge, but what we really need are mindful, disciplined processes for managing it on a daily basis.

In a similar spirit, Ikujiro Nonaka, author of The Knowledge Creating Company , characterized knowledge-creating companies as places where “inventing new knowledge is not a specialized activity… it is a way of behaving, indeed, a way of being, in which everyone is a knowledge worker.” In fact, in the busy working life, one often doesn’t have time to learn in the traditional way, so access to learning materials in the flow of work is paramount.

PDR Design Model Supports Shift to Learning Design in the Work Context

Living in Learning

Our tactics need to shift because we no longer serve the expanded scope of the knowledge worker’s environment. We are behind the flow of business, and many of us do design and develop solutions for the bigger slice of the learning opportunity pie. If knowledge workers are not in training, they must be at work. We sell product during business hours – not take training. We have level two evaluations that confirm knowledge transfer.

Informal Learning – the other 80%

Jay Cross

This paper addresses how organizations, particularly business organizations, can get more done. Workers who know more get more accomplished. Most of what we learn, we learn from other people — parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, playmates, cousins, Little Leaguers, Scouts, school chums, roommates, teammates, classmates, study groups, coaches, bosses, mentors, colleagues, gossips, co-workers, neighbors, and, eventually, our children.

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Learning is the business. That bears repeating: In the Information Age, learning is the business. Every business has a life cycle. Businesses are born, they grow, they prosper, they mature, they taper off, they die.
