How Artificial Intelligence Improves Learning Programs and Business Performance

Traditional learning programs and technology can be valuable tools to build behaviors, strengthen your talent bench, adhere to regulatory requirements, and more.

Learning isn’t static; it happens continuously and in many different places; Hence, the trending phrase, the ‘learning experience.’.

Creating a Learning Culture in Highly Regulated Industries

The Performance Improvement Blog

During the first session of a workshop I facilitate for ATD, one of the participants asked, “What does a learning culture look like in an electrical power generation plant, where most of the training is for the purpose of meeting industry regulations?” This is an excellent question that got me thinking about learning in a highly regulated work environment. First of all, one-time, or even annual programs, is not how the vast majority of people learn.

And tempting as it was to remain in the woodwork this year, after reading a few dozen “learning trends” posts, I felt there was something missing. There were predictions a-plenty on what technology we would love, on the needs of the Millennials, and the learning modalities du jour. But it seems like nobody is addressing the real question: How will learning align with and drive the business? Successful Learning Organizations will have a seat at the table.

The Performance Improvement Blog

Leaders in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, who have prior experience in many different kinds of organizations, are intentionally creating truly unique work environments that are structured differently and operate differently from mainstream, bureaucratic, business-textbook organizations. These leaders are asking why a business has to be autocratic, hierarchical, and controlling.

Learning for a Rapidly Changing World

The Performance Improvement Blog

The safest prediction is that reality will outstrip our imaginations. Professor Mullainathan argues that, in this age of disruption when constant innovation results in creative destruction of businesses, we need to think differently about the education of people throughout their careers. I don’t think we want to subject adults to the kind of learning experiences typical of a 13-year-old’s classroom. In the Knowledge Economy, learning cannot end with school.

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.

Hire Learners for the Knowledge Economy

The Performance Improvement Blog

The Knowledge Economy needs people who are self-directed learners, who know how to get the information and skills they need when and where they need them, who can think critically in terms of evaluating the accuracy and usefulness of this information, and who can learn from both successes and failures. Maybe some organizations can teach people how to learn fast, but most do not have this capability. They need to hire people who already can learn fast and learn well.

4 Reasons Systems Training Isn’t Really About Systems

Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Training Evaluation: A Critique

The Performance Improvement Blog

While better than nothing, for many training programs (as well as for coaching, mentoring, simulations, self-directed learning, etc.), this approach does not produce the information needed to continuously improve performance and achieve business results. First of all, there is low correlation among the four levels (reaction, learning, behavior, and results). Knowing one level does not predict outcomes at the other levels. That’s part of the learning process.
