Question 1 - As the notion of “learning as an event” begins to be replaced with true “just-in-time” learning, (in the form of learning communities and availability to portals of knowledge and information) do you think off-the-shelf eLearning programs in professional skill development will continue to be one component of a learning solution? This is further complicated by the fact that there’s expectation that learning is going to be more and more part of day-to-day knowledge work.

I had planned a month''s "blogging leave" which has stretched to almost four for various reasons--some of these being the absolutely new and challenging world of work I am currently in. But before I sketch out who or what Umesh is and what I learned from him, I have to set the context of my work. One of the current projects I am working on required me to meet the well-known Neelam Chhiber of Industree/Mother Earth fame. And embodied what Harold Jarche says: Work is learning.

What Agile Means to Me

ID Reflections

My interpretation of the Agile philosophy I am trying to acquire better ways of learning and building personal knowledge networks and helping others do it. With the unknown and the complex becoming the norm in knowledge work, adaptability is the key to dealing with challenges, to be comfortable with ambiguity, and to move to a state where we are constantly learning. I complete exactly 3 months at ThoughtWorks today.

Slow Learning – #change11

Clark Quinn

Our formal learning approaches too often don’t follow how our brains really work. We have magic now; we can summon up powerful programs to do our bidding, gaze through webcams across distances, and bring anyone and anything to pretty much anywhere. In short, all of this is in conflict with how the human brain works! We see that we learn by being engaged in meaningful activity, and working with others. The notion is a sort-of personal GPS for your knowledge work.

Q&A With Student from King's College

Kapp Notes

I was asked to do quality control on a computer-based learning program. The program was very elementary. Then, a short-time later in graduate school we were introduced to an early version of HyperCard a computer-flip card program that allowed for linking and branching, then I knew that online learning would be revolutionary and that it was just a matter of time. The same sort of thing happened when factories were automated and when knowledge work became automated.

In the days of textile factories in Manchester, railroads criss-crossing continents, and assembly lines mass- producing automobiles, most work was physical. In fact, Frederick Taylor told workers, ‘You’re not paid to think’ Along came knowledge work.

Any remaining training staff will become mentors, coaches and facilitators who work on improving core business processes, strengthening relationships with customers and cutting costs. We are scrapping lengthy program development projects in favor of quick-and-dirty rapid development. Building a learning ecology is a different exercise than building a training program. These qualities are at the heart of the discipline of agile programming. My new car is one year old!
