How Not to Adopt an LCMS

Xyleme

Create topics to be distributed as microlearning or assembled into a course. Embed content into the workflow. Companies that adopt a new LCMS are challenging the status quo, reimagining the way content is typically authored, created and delivered. Here are some of the most common mistakes organizations make when adopting a new LCMS: Trying to shoe-horn existing process into a new system. It’s very difficult to sit down and design the perfect solution in a vacuum.

Embedding Learning in Work: The Benefits and Challenges

Charles Jennings

If people learn as part of the workflow then this learning is more likely to impact performance in a positive way. Yet another study by Bersin & Associates (now Bersin by Deloitte) published in March 2012 reported that “ Organizations with strong informal learning capabilities, including the adoption and use of social learning tools, are 300% more likely to excel at global talent development than organizations without those competencies.”

Re-thinking Workplace Learning: extracting rather than adding

Charles Jennings

One clear finding presented was that: “t hose activities that are integrated into manager and employee workflow have the largest impact on employee performance, while those that are distinct events separate from the day-to-day job have less impact.” The general finding is that the more tightly bound learning is to the workflow, the greater the impact it is likely to have. the challenges include the facts that: It can’t be built into a course or programme.

LMS vs. LCMS

Xyleme

A Learning Management System (LMS) is a software application that allows a company, school, or organization to administer, document, track, and report on the delivery of educational courses and training programs. An LMS will deliver learning, tracking course access, completions and test scores. An LMS is less focused on content creation and management and more focused on delivering and administering learning courses. Workflow management/review tool.

The Knowledge and Learning Transfer Problem

Charles Jennings

Of course he was right. Of course exposure to other people is one of the primary ways we learn and improve our performance. Of course we don’t ‘deliver’ or ‘transfer’ learning either. 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. Of course this is easier said than done.

70:20:10 - A Framework for High Performance Development Practices

Charles Jennings

The 70:20:10 framework is a simple concept that has developed from work carried out by various researchers over the past half-century that suggests a one-dimensional focus on structured training and development – a rut that many organisations had fallen into – misses the opportunity to exploit learning and development where most of it happens, which is within the workflow. Of course structured and directed ‘formal’ learning can help, but it rarely, if ever, provides the complete answer.

a useful model

Harold Jarche

Here is an excerpt from Frederick Winslow Taylor’s Principles of Scientific Management (1911): “It is only through enforced standardization of methods, enforced adoption of the best implements and working conditions, and enforced cooperation that this faster work can be assured. And the duty of enforcing the adoption of standards and enforcing this cooperation rests with management alone.” Of course many would react strongly against such a model. “It

Human + Machine: The Impact of AI on Business Transformation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

A recent McKinsey study found that AI adoption outside the technology sector is still at an experimental stage, with few firms having deployed it in production at scale. The book studied what leading firms are doing to benefit from human-machine collaborations and found that they’ve succeeded by adopting five key principles: mindset, experimentation, leadership, data, and skills. This is quite different from using technology to automate specific tasks in a job or workflow.

What Does the Training Department Do When Training Doesn’t Work?

Charles Jennings

Of course efficiency is important in any training activity – both in financial terms and in terms of achieving results at the speed of business. Learning in the workflow is the way forward. this is where I have seen the 70:20:10 framework, when used strategically, help organisations adopt new and more effective practices. Training departments need to adopt new approaches, and with these new approaches comes the need for new skillsets.

Is it time for a BYOL (Bring Your Own Learning) strategy in your organization? #BYOL

Jane Hart

So just as some IT departments have realised the futility of banning personal devices in the workplace and are now beginning to adopt BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) strategies, L&D departments might also want to adopt a BYOL (Bring Your Own Learning) strategy and embrace all the learning that is taking place outside of training. Adopting a BYOL strategy will however require a different approach to learning and development.

Moving from a traditional training strategy to one that embeds learning in the daily workflow is challenging enough. Eric Span, lead content developer at Benefitfocus shows the before and after of their learning ecosystem and how Xyleme helped them optimize their learning content design and delivery. Viewers will also get an inside look at Paychex’ journey to high-performing learning content and best practices for managing change to ensure successful adoption.

In old fashioned database design , relationships are very important. The Employee table has a relation with the Salary table, of course. Call it workflow, BPM, you could even compare it with Supply Chain Event Management. Business or Pleasure? -

Determinism, Best Practice, and the ‘Training Solution’

Charles Jennings

Anyone who has even the most rudimentary understanding of chess knows that to adopt a strategy based on determinism is to often invite failure. If a chemical engineer is looking to design a new process or parameters for distillation in a chemical plant she may be able to identify the volumes and sequences that produce the highest amount of pure distillate. We need to help our leaders, managers and workers to better exploit the learning opportunities in their daily workflow.

The Best of Times, The Worst of Times: opportunities and challenges for the L&D profession

Charles Jennings

Always-On and Hyper-Connected Of course there are many L&D departments that are responding well to the dramatic changes that are occurring in the way that work is accomplished and all the changing expectations that come with that. All-in-all the implication for L&D professionals has been to make their traditional offerings of carefully designed, time-consuming and often slowly developed structured modules, courses and programmes relevant to fewer and fewer stakeholder needs.

Five Myths of Social Learning

Xyleme

Social learning is bi-directional and user-generated content and feedback can be a valuable asset for instructional designers to develop more compelling and timely learning, whether that learning is published to a formal course, a non-formal podcast, or an informal blog. So while implementing social media tools provided by an LCMS or LMS vendor may ensure departmental adoption, experience and today’s market show us that enterprise adoption of these tools is not a likely reality.

Open Education, MOOCs, and Opportunities

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

These systems were modeled on distance education resources such as programmed texts and course workbooks. These were designed originally by organizations such as the Open University, in Britain, and Canada''s Athabasca University. Online courses were developed according to a protocol that developed over 20 years of experience. Major LMS companies such as WebCT, Blackboard, Angel, Saba and Desire2Learn all adopted standards originally developed by IMS.

Wikis and Learning – 60 Resources

Tony Karrer

So, of course, I went to eLearning Learning and I looked at Wiki , Collaborative Learning with Wikis , Wikis and eLearning 2.0 , Wikis Corporate eLearning , Social Learning with Wikis , Wiki Security and a few others. I’m involved in several discussions around how to use Wikis as part of learning solutions. I wanted to collect a few resources around this topic for use in these discussions.

Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

What they are talking about these days is the destruction of the university at the hands of the massive open online course. As one of the people who invented the massive open online course, I feel a little personally involved here. Thinking in Models: for Design, for Learning… A large part of this talk is about that change. Here''s a model (Figure 1) of a workflow-processed employee to assist LMS selection. I''ve designed dozens of standards.

Toward a Pattern Language for Enterprise 2.0 : Andrew McAfee’s Blog

Andy McAfee

Technology appears to have been designed for the user Technology appears to have been designed for someone other than the user — the developer, the boss, a lawyer, etc. ’ Of course, the primary goal of enterprise IT is not to delight users, but rather to increase the value of the company. It wouldn’t be prohibitively difficult or expensive for enterprises to adopt 2.0 The design of such an environment is social architecture."

Is craigslist or eHarmony the Right Model for Enterprise 2.0?

Andy McAfee

As they explained this to me I was, of course, nodding my head vigorously in agreement. These questions are designed to reveal what kind of person a respondent is, and what kind of colleague she’d be. Given what I’ve learned about the strength of weak ties and the value of converting potential ties into actual ones , if PP’s approach is better than CL’s for interconnecting people than it’s the one enterprises should adopt.

Nonprofits Need Integrate Learning into their Work in 2014

Beth Kanter

He suggests that design principle is that learning is something separate from work or ‘first we learn and then we work’. Others have a preference for directed learning, a formal structured course. It is not just about an individuals self-directed learning but also groups of self-learners or peer learning cohorts that I design and facilitate as part of my training work. Inspired by Charles Jennings 70:20:10.

Being Bold and Imagining the Different

Charles Jennings

The course and programme mindset We’re in a similar predicament in the L&D world today. Most of L&D’s work in done within the ‘course and programme’ mindset. The four common mistakes the McKinsey researchers identified are: Overlooking context Decoupling reflection from real work Underestimating mindsets Failing to measure results Each of these could be contributed in part to the ‘course and programme’ mindset. Of course all structured development isn’t irrelevant.
