Taking Stock and Making Choices: Working from home and other such stuff

ID Reflections

I have come back to blogging after a hiatus of almost 5 months. I didn’t realise how deeply this constant tussle and tug of war have been affecting me at a sub-conscious level till I had to sit down and weigh some of the choices. We just need to bring back the human spirit into all of the interactions we keep getting involved with. To strike a work-life balance, work from home as much as possible (most of the time).

Successful Online Employee Onboarding Strategies

TalentLMS

That’s right, most of us remember our first day at work with the “fear of the unknown”. Gone are the days when individuals would feel lucky to be part of a successful organization. With the proliferation of dot com and brick and mortar companies all around us, companies consider themselves lucky when a new employee accepts an offer and continues to stay with them beyond six months! Many of us have been through an unorganized and mismanaged onboarding process.

Where is L&D heading?

E-Learning Provocateur

The topic of the evening was Where is L&D Heading? and some questions were posted through by the attendees ahead of time, while others emerged through the discourse. Here is an overview of my answers, plus elaborations and suggestions for further reading, for each of the questions that was (and was not) asked. Is the race to the bottom on time and price for degrees affecting employers’ perceptions of universities? The moot point of MOOCs.

Personal Learning Networks: For Ongoing Learning in a Connected World

ID Reflections

I have recently joined the open section of #MSLOC 430 - a graduate course in the Master''s Program in Learning and Organizational Change at Northwestern University. The four topics we are planning to deep dive into in the first two weeks are: a) Networked learning, b) Personal Learning Networks, c) MOOCs, and d) Communities of Inquiry. These are all areas of interest for me, and my hope and plan is to find (make) sufficient time to explore each of these in depth.

Learning Visions

10,000 or so training and development people here to extend their practice. We have been in a period of instability and it won’t be stable for a long, long time…. Corporations have yet to organize in high-end guilds like world of warcraft. The half life of any skills is shrinking to less than five years. We move from stocks to flows…. Stocks = assets that we packaged (the old order of corporate training). A lot of it is still tacit. Kineo.

What the ACCME Is Saying about Tailoring Your CME Experience

EthosCE

Their standards reflect the values of the educator community and respond to the evolving healthcare environment. As a result, clinicians and teams can drive improvement in their practice and optimize care for their patients. They use real-world practices to help build a community of practice that enables CME providers to learn from each other, continually improve their education, and demonstrate how accredited CME measurably improves healthcare.

Portrait of a learning architect: Rob Bartlett

Clive on Learning

Throughout my book The New Learning Architect I take time out to look at real-life examples of great learning architects in action. Rob has achieved success by integrating formal and informal learning activities in pursuit of clear strategic business objectives. On the other hand, the culture of the bank is still very much one where representatives get out to see customers face-to-face as much as is possible.

On the other hand, the culture of the bank is still very much one where representatives get out to see customers face-to-face as much as is possible. Each new employee is supported through the programme by a team of mentors. The three weeks of residential classroom training are interspersed with assignments and conference calls.

When Social means Business …

Last week news was abounding that Microsoft are about to announce their acquisition of social media company Yammer for $1.2B. Although not yet confirmed, it comes hot on the heels of other social media buy outs such as Salesforce.com snapping up Buddy Media for close to $700 million to complement its existing Chatter social media platform; Oracle adding Collective Intellect and Vitrue to its portfolio of social media-related acquisitions and SAP acquiring Ariba for $4.3

The NBA’s New MVP

CLO Magazine

When Mike Kennedy joined the National Basketball Association in 2012 as director of learning and leadership development, the organization was stuck in an old-school learning environment under long-time commissioner David Stern. The curriculum was limited, managers decided whether their people attended courses, and there was no clear vision of what effective leadership looked like. Kennedy himself had begun to wonder if he could build a long-term career in that kind of environment.

Have Your Training Projects Entered the 21st Century

Rapid eLearning

I took it out of storage to show my kids. The idea of a digital instruction guide made no sense unless you were Marty McFly. Right before you do something new, they give you quick instructions and a practice option. Game players are often connected to other game players and learn through their community of peers. How does any of this relate to how we build courses today? Most of the elearning courses I see aren’t overly complex.

Weapon of mass detraction

Learning with e's

I'm talking about the use of Twitter as a weapon of mass detraction - as a means of heckling keynote speakers at conferences. Tweckling has happened several times over the course of the year in high profile conferences. On the conference's social network site the conference backchannel tool Twitter is announced as "what it means to embrace a truly free and open stream of communication in the digital age." It's not the only occurance of 'harshtagging' either.

Revamping 70-20-10

CLO Magazine

The 70-20-10 model for professional development is a valuable but dated approach in need of a checkup. There is a core set of frameworks that support the way organizational learning and development is conducted. Many of these, such as the Kirkpatrick evaluation levels, carrot and stick motivational programs and the ADDIE model have been around since the 1960s. The world of mobile and social learning and Google, however, requires new measures.

Merger mania in and around eLearning

First, on Monday, WebEx buys intranets.com for $45M in cash ( details ) then today SumTotal buys Pathlore for $29M in cash ( details ) and $19M in stock. Anyone familiar with my posts and company knows that I am a big believer in the power of collaboration (and ideally done to such a level of integration that it results in mentoring not just with 'experts' but also with your peers) so it is heartening to see that finally we are moving past 'simplistic' collaboration (i.e.

Not Your Father’s ROI

Jay Cross

The July issue of Chief Learning Officer is now available online. It features an article in which Jon Husband and I delve into how to measure the impact of learning in the network era. The industrial age has run out of steam. We are witnessing the death throes of management models that have outlived their usefulness. One cherished industrial age concept that is proving particularly difficult to let go of is return on investment (ROI).
