Why Corporate Training is Broken And How to Fix It

Jay Cross

Workers are disgruntled 10. Training is out of sync with the times 11. The world around corporate training has changed. What worked twenty years ago doesn’t work well in the social, always-on, networked world of business we now inhabit. Traditional training departments cannot build courses fast enough to keep up with the speed of change. The 20th Century was the great age of training. Drucker wrote The Practice of Management.

Learning and KM: Separated at birth?

T wo years ago, DevLearn and KM World took place simultaneously in downtown San Jose. I sensed that learning and knowledge management were converging and invited bloggers form both sides to get together at the Tidehouse to share viewpoints and guzzle beer. KM World 2009 is next week. Looking through the program, I’m delighted to see that many of the sessions could easily play at DevLearn and vice-versa. People already share knowledge within the enterprise.
