Becoming a Social Business – Beyond Culture Change

Learnnovators

The usual culprits are the hapless organizational culture closely followed by hierarchy and leadership lethargy. The crux of the problem lies in our inability to see how the culture of organizations stem from and is shaped by the very discourse of management that we have collectively subscribed to ever since the Industrial Revolution and the manufacturing era. Currently, our management discourse is permeated by the language of two metaphors – the military and the manufacturing.

Develop Work Skills

Tony Karrer

The element that really resonated with me is the adhoc nature / the real-time learning that we do today. Eg some can ask questions and harness a network. There are also several studies of knowledge worker practices that suggest that a lot of what is effective is quite personal. That said, I think there is a tendency to lean on the skills that we are good at and not use other approaches when they are called for. Let’s face it organizations that learn faster win.

What Makes a MOOC a MOOC?

ID Reflections

MOOCs have taken the world of higher ed and corporate learning by the proverbial storm. When George Siemens , Dave Cormier and Stephen Downes came up with the concept in 2008, they had a vision of how a “learning design” based on Connectivism could change the face of learning and collaboration. Most organizations (hopefully) have accepted that learning is crucial to their strategy for growth and performance, and if done right, has a direct impact on the bottom line.
