Why Organizations Must Encourage Collaboration: Building a Case

The premise of this post is that when an organization makes a conscious effort to move towards a more social way of doing business, it usually begins with the introduction of an enterprise collaboration platform.

One of the concerns that worry training and learning professionals most about leading culture change in their organizations is that managers will say that they don’t have time to facilitate and support employee development.

This Is What I Believe About Learning in Organizations

The Performance Improvement Blog

The Purpose of Business is Learning. But none of this is possible without learning.

Active and Passive Learning in Organizations

The Performance Improvement Blog

Many of the typical methods of learning in the workplace make the learner a passive recipient of knowledge and skills.
