The change is here

Clark Quinn

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.

Big change vs Little change in workplace learning

When Context Transcends Change Management

What if everything we have been told about Change Management over the course of the last few decades was all just … plain wrong? What if research keeps telling us, over and over again, how ’ most change efforts fail ’ ? Do we still think that organisations can change?

Nothing Has Changed. Everything Has Changed.

Measuring Culture Change

Clark Quinn

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.

L&D as Agents of Change

Jane Hart

In my Modern Workplace Learning (MWL) framework I provide a broader definition of workplace learning; one that encompasses all learning experiences that take place in the organisation – not just those that are organised and managed by L&D – but ones that happen as a result of individuals and teams working together on a daily basis.

The Paradox of Preparing for Change

John Hagel

Here’s an example: the best way to prepare for change is to decide what isn’t going to 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.

Traditional training structures are changing

The rapid pace of change is unlikely to abate in the near future. From this, it’s clear — traditional training structures, based on institutions, programs, courses and classes, are changing.

Technology and change.

Euen Semple

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.

Work is changing

“The nature of work is changing. People’s relationship with work is changing. The changes to society will be vast.” Here are some observations and insights that were shared on social media this past fortnight. I call these Friday’s Finds.

Embracing change from both sides

Harold Jarche

Consultants, and even key internal staff, can often identify the problem (at the time) but then they move on to the next problem before much change has happened. Changing to a social business is complex. But you cannot directly change it or implement it.

How Large Systems Change

Proclamations of systemic change, particularly in higher education, are more hype than reality. While there is some pressure, most pronounced in the US, for change to the big residential model of higher education, globally the demand is strong knowledge institutions.

Ch-ch-ch-changes

Clark Quinn

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.
