The change is here
MARCH 1, 2017
For a number of years now (at least six ), I’ve been beating the drum about the need for organizations to be prepared to address change. Now we’re seeing the evidence that the change has arrived. The world’s changing, and L&D needs to adapt.

Measuring Culture Change
NOVEMBER 1, 2016
Someone recently asked how you would go about measuring culture change, and I thought it’s an interesting question. So it’s plausible that you’d want to change, and if you do, you’d like to know how it’s going. As a process, I think about what I might do before, during, and after any culture change initiative. Culture change is a journey, not an event, after all ;). The post Measuring Culture Change appeared first on Learnlets.

The Paradox of Preparing for Change

The theme of the gathering was “Changing the Game.” They gave me exactly three minutes to offer some thoughts on the best way to prepare for change. Talk about preparing for change! Well, I learned that change can be really, really exciting – it was an awesome opportunity to explore the globe at a very young age and experience so many diverse cultures.
Technology and change.
OCTOBER 18, 2013
Too often, as has been the way since the dawn of IT implementations, organisations will go out and spend a fortune on a new platform and neither put enough effort into preparing people for what it is expected to achieve, nor prepare them to respond to the organisational challenges that the change will bring about. We are experiencing a seismic shift in how we see the world that is primarily social and cultural rather than simply technological.

Is there an appetite for change in L&D? There really isn’t any burning desire for change, or willingness to move even if there is. That was the conversation I’ve had with colleagues lately. And I have to say that that the answer is mixed, at best. The consensus is that most of L&D is comfortably numb. That L&D folks are barely coping with getting courses out on a rapid schedule and running training events because that’s what’s expected and known.
