The Performance Improvement Blog

The nature of work is changing. People are no longer being judged on the basis of how hard they work or how much they produce. Work is no longer about simply doing a job; it’s about becoming adapting to new jobs, new technology, new ways of working with others, and anticipating the unanticipated. Now tasks done by humans are being enhanced by the Internet, providing the collective knowledge of the world at their fingertips. Training Is Not Learning.
