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

ID Reflections

Mostly, business as usual at work and crisis situations at home took my time and attention. Because I love what I do (and I am hugely fortunate in that sense), it’s very easy to let my work consume me and my time. Much has been written about priorities and work life balance — especially for women. To strike a work-life balance, work from home as much as possible (most of the time). This taught me a few things about work, technology and myself.

Kapp Notes

There has been a lot of talk about formal vs. informal learning in the educational blogosphere and when it comes right down to it, formal learning is the most effective. When lives are on the line, the learning process is studied, calculated and formalized to a degree of realism as close to 100% as possible.

Jane Hart

Yesterday, in my first posting on this topic, I showed how “social learning” is not just about a new training trend or about adding social media into the “blend&# or acquiring the latest Social Learning Management System, but a fundamental change in how we need to view workplace learning.

Things are moving faster, and this has all sorts of consequences: it means that change is occurring more frequently, information is doubling, our competition is more aggressive, and more.

Instead, we need to make sure everyone understands what the overall goal is, and have them work together to achieve it. Who is responsible for ensuring this works?

Learning’s Role in Innovation

CLO Magazine

Organizations are facing increasing disruptions, more information is available, and new technologies are making it easier and faster to compete. Provided that learning and development leaders could and should have a central role in innovation, what is the chief learning officer’s responsibility? And this is contrary to much of the working world where interaction is kept to a necessary minimum, time is to be spent on work tasks and mistakes are punished.

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.

Decisions, decisions. Business decisions.

Jay Cross

Jay Cross examines decision making on learning at work, and gives the lie to some myths about the use of business metrics. It is equally vital to understand that different officers of your corporation will approach decisions about learning in very different ways depending on their circumstances. Every business decision is made with less than perfect information, and every decision entails taking a risk. Knowledge Workers. There’s more and more to learn.
