Managing to Learn, Learning to Manage in the Knowledge Economy

The Performance Improvement Blog

Companies whose roots lay in the industrial economy in which we used our hands to make things learned to “manage hands,” where success was often measured by the number of widgets that can be cranked out in a set amount of time. Most current management practices, principles and methods for learning were developed in response to the needs of that previous economy.

Learning Ethical Behavior in the Workplace

The Performance Improvement Blog

That might meet the requirements of a regulatory agency, but don’t expect your employees to learn “…to do the next right thing.” A training event, classroom or virtual, is no way to develop ethical behavior in a workforce. I’m sure each of those companies includes ethics in their employee training programs and lists ethical behavior among the values in their employee handbooks. You don’t learn this in a training program , even a highly interactive and gamified program.

Independent Learner in the Knowledge Economy

The Performance Improvement Blog

In the Knowledge Economy, people must take responsibility for their own learning. They need to learn how to learn independently and how to learn what they need to know when they need to know it. While skills are still necessary for success, the focus should shift to cultivating the underlying capabilities that can accelerate learning so that new skills can be more rapidly acquired. Support from training and HR departments is necessary but insufficient.

Reprise: The Self-Directed Learner

The Performance Improvement Blog

The most common way in which companies train employees today is basically the same as organizations have been training for the past hundred years (some would say thousands of years).

Things are quite different now and, therefore, training needs to change. Learn continuously.
