MOOCs and Performance Support

Your Training Edge

And when you start to actually look at the numbers, it becomes apparent that many traditional forms of instructor-led training are frankly not worth it: people forget 90 percent of what they learn sitting in a classroom, often by the time they walk out the door. A combination of knowledge transfer and performance support. Effective performance support is embedded (i.e., Let’s flip the whole dynamic learning and support ecosystem, not just the classroom. ”.

Organizational Learning Tools

The Performance Improvement Blog

What are the tools of organizational learning? As I’ve stated in a previous blog post , a high performing organization needs a comprehensive approach to learning and a set of tools to facilitate learning. A training program, or an educational event, or even a CEO’s speech about the importance of learning is not enough. These categories of learners and tools translate into a four by three matrix of learners and learning tools.

Cultural Barriers to Organizational Learning

The Performance Improvement Blog

Some cultures support learning more than others. Some cultures stifle learning by marginalizing the training and development function, by discouraging risk-taking, by not rewarding learning, by not allowing opportunities for informal and social learning, and by undermining performance improvement efforts. It’s not that managers are sitting around discussing how they can prevent learning; this is rarely consciously intentional.

10 Principles of Organizational Learning DNA

The Performance Improvement Blog

How do we know if an organization has the “DNA” that predisposes it to organizational learning? Gary Neilson and Jaime Estupinan have been studying and writing about "organizational DNA" for the past 10 years.

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.

Manager's Role in Learning and Performance Improvement

The Performance Improvement Blog

What should be a manager’s role in employee learning? In answering this question, the first thing managers have to understand is that continuous learning is the modus operandi for all high performance organizations. Individual, team, and enterprise performance can’t improve without learning. Learning isn’t in addition to a manager’s job; it IS a manager’s job. An engineer in a prototype department of a manufacturer learns how to operate a 3D printer.

The 70:20:10 model for Learning and Development states that individuals acquire 70% of their knowledge from job-related experiences, 20% from interactions with others and a mere 10% from formal educational events. I would suggest the use of performance support to extend formal training. Why Performance Support is Crucial for Organizations. How Performance Support is Different from Formal Training.

Performance Reviews Are Bad for Learning

The Performance Improvement Blog

A survey of SHRM members conducted in August indicates that although most organizations say that a performance management system is important to them, few think that their companies are doing a good job managing performance. Given that having annual and semi-annual formal performance reviews is a key aspect of performance management in nearly all of these organizations, it’s no wonder that HR leaders don’t rate their organizations highly in this regard.

Learning and Performance Improvement in 2013

The Performance Improvement Blog

Charles Jennings offers this picture for the year: A confluence of technology and improved connectivity, increasing pressures for rapid solutions and better customer service, and demands for higher performance, will force the hands of many HRDs and CLOs to refocus from models of ‘extended formal training’ to place technology-enabled, workplace-focused and leader-led development approaches at the core of their provision. Increasingly, workers will learn their jobs by doing their jobs.”

Re-thinking Learning and Performance from a Business Standpoint

ID Reflections

Yesterday, I wrote a post on Learning vs. Performance – the Dichotomy. It was more of a theoretical exposition on why learning doesn’t necessarily translate into performance, and delved into some of the psychological and behavioral aspects of the same. Why is it that learning and training don’t translate into performance? Why are employees still not performing as expected? What does matter – critically – is performance and the impact on business.

Organizational Learning Infrastructure

Clark Quinn

However, then the easy, and uninteresting answer, is to fall into talking about elearning, performance support, mobile, portals, knowledge management, all that stuff that makes people’s eyes glaze over if they haven’t seen the light. What I realized today was that what I’m really about is improving organizational learning infrastructure. It’s about knowledge and skills how to learn alone and together, using the infrastructure.

Why Continued Organizational Learning is Critical to your Performance and Culture

The first article was “ How ‘Learning Organizations’ Beat Natural Selection” .

ASTD Webcast on Manager's Role in Employee Learning and Performance Improvement

The Performance Improvement Blog

I did a webcast for the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) on the topic of the manager’s role in employee learning and performance improvement.

Supporting the Social Workplace Learning Continuum

Jane Hart

In my previous blog post I explained how I recognized it is difficult for a lot of organisations to support informal and social learning in their organisations, because they are unable to jump the two mindset hurdles of (a) thinking that learning only happens in training courses, and (b) that all organisational learning needs to be controlled by Training/L&D departments. But in order to support the full SWL Continuum, there are 5 points to take on board.

Supporting self-managed team learning in the organisation

Jane Hart

This is a post in a series that I am writing about how the future role of L&D is moving from “packaging learning” to “scaffolding learning”. In the first post I explained that “packaging learning” involves organizing and wrapping up everything an individual needs to learn in a neat parcel, delivering it to them on a plate, and making sure they do it, whilst “scaffolding” is about supporting learning in many other less top-down organized ways.
