More Curious Learning

Learning Rebels

First we need to know our stuff, build our knowledge, work up a curiosity and not accept myths as truths – let’s take Learning Styles as an example; find research, find data, read the whitepapers, and draw your own conclusions. We take the easy path as assume tribal knowledge must be correct, it’s easier to believe the talking points than actually read the story. We should be just as curious about the business for which we work. . Original Post here.

Learning’s Role in Innovation

CLO Magazine

And this is contrary to much of the working world where interaction is kept to a necessary minimum, time is to be spent on work tasks and mistakes are punished. One realization is that most of the benefits to business are coming increasingly from so-called knowledge work, work that processes information in productive ways. People should share, and best ideas come from passion and working collectively.” The world has changed.

Curated Insights: The Human Side of Extracting Business Value from Information

CLO Magazine

If insights are buried in knowledge repositories or traditional learning management systems or learning experience platforms and not accessible via digital workplace platforms and devices that enable critical thinking, they may never make it to those in need. As cognitive systems continue to strip away routine knowledge work, expert critical thinkers will play an increasingly valuable role in driving business actions and decisions. Content curation is not a new phenomenon.

The Rise of the Servant Leader

CLO Magazine

In the 20th century, information became as important as materials, leading to what my friend and mentor Peter Drucker called knowledge work. People were no longer viewed as mere “hired hands,” and managers had to learn to encourage and inspire those who worked with them. But what does servant leadership look like to the average manager who has a budget to work within and goals to meet?

Study: Enhanced Employee Development Needed in 2013

CLO Magazine

Employees must work differently to survive where frequent organizational change, knowledge work and increased collaboration are the norm. To thrive under these conditions, employees must be immune to the complexities of change, willing to collaborate with a broad range of individuals and be able to apply sound judgment in increasingly knowledge-based roles.

What to Expect from Learning and Development in 2017

CLO Magazine

With the growing prioritization of competency-based learning, companies can expect more employees in the future to arrive at work with greater variances in their preparedness. Unfortunately, because knowledge work is difficult to measure and reward fairly, “gurus will continue to propose variations on an old theme.”. The Financial Times-IE Business School Corporate Learning Alliance has released its 2017 predictions for learning and development.

Observations of a Critical Theory newbie

E-Learning Provocateur

It’s human nature to accept knowledge that’s universally propagated. In his thought-provoking paper Critical Theory: Ideology Critique and the Myths of E-Learning , Dr Norm Friesen maintains: “The central argument of critical theory is that all knowledge, even the most scientific or ‘commonsensical,’ is historical and broadly political in nature. We live in a knowledge economy. The knowledge economy.

Trends in Learning

Tony Karrer

Environmental Changes Some of the common trends I discuss in presentations are: Decreased L&D budgets Faster pace Increased workforce mobility Shorter job tenure Increased job fragmentation - fewer numbers in any one role Constant increase in complexity Greater concept work Need for faster proficiency Changing expectations for learning The bottom line is that Learning and Development needs to do more with less these days or they will be marginalized.

Why You Should Embrace The Gig Economy For Strategic Advantage

EI Design

Embrace the gig economy work structure for a strategic advantage over out-dated workflow practices. But managers and HR departments tend to operate from a perspective of fear, convinced that employees can only complete work if they’re supervised in an office. It makes sense to insist that employees all work next to each other on a factory assembly line. This new paradigm is optimized for knowledge work, like L&D. They can work virtual of other team members.

Workscaping, part 1 of n

Jay Cross

T oday CLO magazine’s Deanne Hartley interviewed me for an upcoming story about micro-learning. In time, the words will migrate into the Working Smarter unbook. Working smarter is the key to sustainability and perpetual improvement. Knowledge work and learning to work smarter are becoming indistinguishable. The accelerating rate of change in business forces everyone in every organization to make a choice: learn while you work or become obsolete.

The Tale of Two Cultures

Jay Cross

I am going to use the concept to describe two different sorts of knowledge and the different way we learn them. #1 1 is intuitive knowledge and #2 is logical knowledge. Intuitive knowledge . Intuitive knowledge is what Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman describes in Thinking Fast and Slow as System 1. Intuitive knowledge works with patterns; it knows no words. Intuitive knowledge is also known as muscle memory. Rational knowledge.

The Best of Times, The Worst of Times: opportunities and challenges for the L&D profession

Charles Jennings

Rethink what’s gone before and adapt to change, or keep on doing what’s always been done in the hope beyond hope that it will work. The findings make salutary reading for any CLO, learning leader or L&D professional. This is all very positive, and an apparent validation of the existing work L&D departments are carrying out. In other words the majority of line leaders would actively discourage their colleagues from working with the L&D department.

He also knows ‘what works’ in the world of strategic talent. Charles: I see these shifts in learning as being driven not only by re-thinking the process of learning and development and by emerging technologies, but also by fundamental changes in the world of work. Factors such as changing organisational structures and evolving work practices are important drivers. Charles: We now know that people learn more about their work informally than they do formally.

Distractions and reflections

Clark Quinn

The other day, I wanted to read an article on the CLO site. And CLO spread the article across four pages with moving ads all over the place. I still argue that one of the best investments that can be made is reflection, particularly for knowledge work and any individual or organization that needs to not just survive but thrive in the growing flow of information and chaos.

Reflecting on the first half of 2009

Jay Cross

Any remaining training staff will become mentors, coaches and facilitators who work on improving core business processes, strengthening relationships with customers and cutting costs. Workplace learning is morphing from blocks of training followed by working to a merger of work and learning: they are becoming the same thing. They’re all facets of the same thing: the corporate commons of work and learning. The scope of the job of the CLO is mushrooming.

2008 in retrospect

Next year, I intend to start making the world a better place, and that’s going to take more oomph, focus, and work with others. Forever Beta appears in CLO magazine.
