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. Then you can provide autonomy and the paths to mastery (the other two elements) and get people working from intrinsic motivation.

Agile: An incredibly freeing way to work

Torrance Learning

Doesn’t the project team think this is just incredibly controlling?”. The project team makes the plan. The project team includes the client, subject matter expert, team members and the project lead. The beautiful thing about this is that the entire process sets up what I like to call a “work-directed work team.”. In the 90s, I spent a lot of time studying self-directed work teams.

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.”

Coherent Implications

Clark Quinn

And right now I’m working with the Coherent Organization model and looking at the implications for decisions. There are three layers: work teams composed of members from different communities of practice, that are connected outward to broader social networks.

I ended up with the following diagram, which is very much a work in progress.

What does change(d) look like?

Clark Quinn

Employees would be tightly coupled to their work teams, and more loosely coupled to their communities of practice. Teams would be diverse and flexible, and group work would be the norm. Much curation would happen by individual in communities monitoring the larger network, individuals in teams bringing in relevant elements from their communities, and sharing back reflections and outcomes that inform the community while communities would share back to the larger network.

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.

Working with other learners adds another layer of learning, practice, and retention.
