Uberizing Organizational Learning – Thinking Beyond Courses

ID Reflections

We have to think agile, instant, accessible, contextual, micro-sized, real time… We need to uberize organizational learning. Uberization ” has taken off as the new term that according to me has come to stand for – disruption, innovation, lean operating model, harnessing of the affordances of the sharing economy, and a hyper-connected world driven by imagination and creativity where everything is a mobile-click away – including learning. Learning is no exception.

Organizational Learning Is A Social Act

CLO Magazine

We make many assumptions about organizational learning. On the surface we seem to know what organizational learning is: People attend programs or complete e-learning modules, they learn something new and they somehow become better. But this approach doesn’t represent how people in organizations actually learn. Hence we see massive failures across the board in the effectiveness of organizational learning.

Learning measurement is one of those topics that constantly seems to need revisiting. Much of the corporate learning has moved online – even something as personal as one on one coaching is often done via some communication app between individuals situated in different geographical areas. As a result, assessment of L&D interventions should also tap into the potential digitization offers and make things simpler. Learning evaluation needs to be simpler.

7 Characteristics Of A Digital Mindset

Learnnovators

The digital five forces – Social Media, Big Data, Mobility and Pervasive Computing, Cloud, and AI and Robotics – are disintermediating, disrupting and deconstructing the old world order. The word “digital” is on everyone’s lips; however, organizations are stumbling when trying to put in place a holistic strategy and implementation plan that will take into account the mega-shifts heralded by these forces. The power of digital is transformative.

“Digital Mindset”: What Is It All About?

Learnnovators

Digital mindset” seems to have become another buzzword–rather buzz-phrase to be grammatically precise–whenever the conversation (online or offline) veers toward social business, social learning, collaboration, and other 21st Century phenomenon in general. One of the oft-repeated reasons for the failure of Enterprise Social Networks (ESNs) in organizations is often attributed to a lack of “digital mindset” in the employees or leadership or both.

Why Continued Organizational Learning is Critical to your Performance and Culture

WalkMe Training Station

The first article was “ How ‘Learning Organizations’ Beat Natural Selection” . Organizational learning allows for teams to learn exactly what is relevant to their specific tasks and specialties while other information they do not need is given to the individuals and teams that need it, with some Venn overlap between for cooperation.

70:20:10 For Trainers

Learnnovators

Learning & Development Professional has been running a poll on the following question: Is the 70:20:10 model still relevant today? It just refers to the general observation that the majority of learning in the workplace is done on the job, a substantial chunk is done by interacting with others, while a much smaller proportion is done off the job (eg in a classroom). Not only does this extend the learning experience, but it also bakes in accountability for the learning.
