Do you know what the advantages of e-learning are for companies with distributed teams?

isEazy

Large companies or multinationals tend to have teams that are distributed over a large geographical area. And these aren’t the only types of businesses that have this problem: it’s increasingly common for businesses (especially startups) to hire talent around the world to work remotely instead of having their physical headquarters in a city. New technologies allow companies to work incredibly well this way, but training is where things can get tough.

The Next Generation of Workplace Learning Practices in the Age of Knowledge Sharing and Collaboration

Jane Hart

Last week I wrote a post about Connected Learning and how it offers a semi-directed, semi-structured approach to workplace learning that fits between the directed, structured knowledge sharing (aka training or e-learning) that has been the way that L&D has traditionally operated, and the unstructured, self-directed knowledge sharing that happens in work teams and groups [.].

Aligning coherency

Clark Quinn

For one, those work teams can be at any level. There will be work teams at the level that the work gets done, but there’ll also be work teams at the management and even executive levels. Those groups, at every level, need to be working in alignment with the broader organization’s goals, and vision.

Supporting workplace learning in the network era is more than delivering courses through a LMS

Jane Hart

People who can seek new information, make sense of it, and share it with their colleagues, will be an asset to any work team. However, they need access to their learning networks while at work, and this is often a challenge. Harold Jarche, in his recent post, Supporting workplace learning , uses a great little diagram to show that -. “It takes much more than courses delivered through a learning management system to support workplace learning in the network era.”

Starting a revolution?

Clark Quinn

In thinking a bit about the Future of Work, one of the issues is where to start. If we take the implications of the Coherent Organization to heart, we realize that the components include the work teams, the communities of practice (increasingly I think of it as a community of improvement ), and the broader network. So, a natural place to start small is the team itself. The goal would be to draw upon a diverse team meeting a real need, but facilitating their tool use.

A bit more detail

Clark Quinn

In the Coherent Organization model that we (the ITA ) came up with, it talks about how work teams are fed by and feed up to communities as they too feed up to and are fed from social networks. They are the ones who form teams. And they’ll work together in those teams, for short term needs or on an ongoing basis. A good team member will bring their community expertise into the team, and likewise feedback their learning from their team work.

I had, as Harold’s original model provided the basis for, separate groups for Work Teams, Communities of Practice, and Social Networks. In Work Teams, I had included: share problems, co-coach, assist, brainstorm effectively, continuous feedback, welcome contributions, learn from mistakes, align with mission, narrate work, champion diversity, and measure improvement.
