[berkman] Dries Buytaert: Drupal and sustaining collaborative efforts

David Weinberger

Drupal has 10,000+ modules, 300,000 downloads a month, 1.5M Module developers can get funded from LSD. The 15,000 modules are maintained by the community. Patches go through a workflow before they reaches me. Dries Buytaert [twitter: Dries ] , the founder of Drupal and co-founder of Acquia , is giving a Berkman lunch talk about building and sustaining online collaborations. NOTE: Live-blogging. Getting things wrong. Missing points. Omitting key information.

Building a Culture of Continuous Learning

Charles Jennings

This study was part of the Corporate Executive Board’s ‘Building High Performance Capability for the New Work Environment’ report published towards the end of 2012. To achieve these three targets, we need to think out of the traditional learning and development box – beyond the class/course and eLearning module approaches towards embedding a culture where learning becomes recognised as occurring within the workflow. Most people get it.

The Knowledge and Learning Transfer Problem

Charles Jennings

from our 702010 towards 100% performance book) If learning is embedded in the daily flow of work, rather than away from the workflow, the idea that we need to develop ways to ‘transfer’ that learning into practical use disappears. Especially as most organisations have an often large and continuing investment in formal training and development, the vast majority of which is carried out away from the workflow.

It’s Only 65% !

Charles Jennings

The numbers are a useful reminder that the majority of learning occurs through experience and practice within the workflow (the ‘70’), through sharing and supporting others, conversations and networks (the ‘20’), and that a smaller amount of overall learning occurs through structured training and development activities (the ‘10’). I wrote about ‘the numbers’ on this blog back in June 2012. The results of yet another 70:20:10 survey were published recently.
