Workplace Learning in a World “Beyond Automation”

Learnnovators

With automation, AI and robots looming over the job scene, there seems to be a constant fear of humans losing out to computers and technology. It’s akin to one of our childhood sci-fi movies finally becoming a reality – the machines are taking over. The digital disruptors in the shape of Robots, Big Data and Sensors are here. However, this HBR article takes a different view of automation and digitization of work, going beyond the gloom and doom mindset.

The differences between learning in an e-business and learning in a social business

Jane Hart

In my recent webinar I shared a slide that showed the 5 stages of workplace learning. This has attracted a lot of interest, and I’ve been asked to talk more about the differences between “learning” in Stages 1-4 and Stage 5. Although the advent of e-technology in the late 1990s changed businesses into e-businesses, this was essentially about automating existing business thinking and practices. LEARNING IN AN E-BUSINESS. Community management.

Re-imagining Work & Learning in a Networked World

ID Reflections

"The nature of work is changing. The changes to society will be vast" by @gapingvoid We are on the eve of 2015! Most of us do a retrospection of the year gone by, and a future-spection of the year to come. These are The Shift: The Future of Work is Already Here by Dr. Lynda Gratton (a book review coming up soon), and The Second Machine Age by Andrew Mcafee and Erik Brynjolfsson. This has wide-ranging implication on learning and the future of work.

The Changing Face of Work and Workplace Learning

Now that my disclaimers are in place, let me explain the premise of the post title and what I intend to discuss in this post. Companies take birth and vanish; business models come and go; technology appear, evolve and transform everything. I am not doing (at least trying not to) today what I did five years back--not only in terms of professional and personal growth but with respect to the demands of the time. Workers will move from "jobs for life" to a "life of jobs".

Is it time for a BYOL (Bring Your Own Learning) strategy in your organization? #BYOL

Jane Hart

My previous blog post that revealed that around 70% of respondents in my recent survey found training (including e-learning) “unimportant” or only “somewhat important” has generated quite a bit of interest. A number of comments focused on how we now need to make training/e-learning more “engaging” or “effective” to recapture the interest of these people. Success of learning is therefore measured in terms of their new or improved performance.

Why Content Curation Should be in Your Skillset

Jay Cross

It can save millions, reduce frustration, and boost the velocity of information in your organization. You expect the curator of an art gallery to know the collection and to: search out the best items. They have the same job but instead of paintings, deal with digital artifacts such as: blog posts and Tweets. Instead of satisfying art lovers, corporate curation saves enormous amounts of time, keeps teams on the same page, and equips everyone with the latest insights.
