The Power of Reflection in an Ever-Changing World

Charles Jennings

Military after-action reviews (AARs) are tremendous structured processes that analyse what happened, why it happened and how it could be done better. We learn through taking the opportunity to reflect both in the workflow and away from our work. It is a learned process.

Charles Jennings

“Progress is impossible without change; and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” That’s a large variance, not an exact number, but it does suggest that we need to look beyond formal learning if we’re to help create a step-change in performance.

learning with complexity

Harold Jarche

Two technologies — machine learning , and the internet — are changing our understanding of the world by showing that we really cannot understand large scale complexity. Visualize the workflow of a physical job: produce, produce, produce, produce, produce, produce, produce, produce, produce.

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. By their very nature informal and social learning is embedded in the daily workflow. The majority of learning occurs naturally as part of the workflow.

70:20:10 - Beyond the Blend

Charles Jennings

Participants are not constrained in the same way that they might be if they need to show up to a class at a set time and location to complete their learning process. We intentionally add learning-focused activities into the workflow.

How to Support the Widespread Adoption of AI

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Surveys with thousands of executives, showed that most firms are only using AI in ad hoc pilots or applying it to a single business process. They require leaders to prepare, motivate, and equip the workforce to make a change.

The Knowledge and Learning Transfer Problem

The ‘knowledge transfer’ model doesn’t even work between organisations in industries with relatively standardised process. There is no ‘best practice’ where there are different environments and processes.

How to Transform a “Big, Old” Company into an Agile Digital Business

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Agility, the ability to respond to rapidly changing technologies and markets, is the overriding objective of becoming a digital business. It takes a high-level view of the interactions among people, process, and technology. The IT unit is not positioned to design people and processes.

Autonomy and Value in Social and Workplace Learning

Charles Jennings

70:20:10 Model The 70:20:10 model is used to extend learning into the workflow. Exploiting and extending learning opportunities from point solutions (learning events) to continuous development (learning as a process and part of the daily workflow) to increase value.

working collaboratively and learning cooperatively

Harold Jarche

Visualize the workflow of a physical job: produce, produce, produce, produce, produce, produce, produce, produce, produce. Now visualize the workflow of a creative knowledge worker: nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, flash of brilliance, nothing, nothing, nothing.” —Jay

70:20:10 Primer

Charles Jennings

The model simply describes learning as it naturally happens and then offers means to accelerate and support that learning: as part of the daily workflow; through working and sharing with colleagues and experts; through structured development activities.

Harvard Library adopts LibraryCloud

David Weinberger

As those inputs change, you can change LibraryCloud’s workflow process once, and all the apps and services that depend upon those data can continue to work without making any changes. New data can be added relatively easily, and because LibraryCloud is workflow based, that data can be updated, normalized and enriched automatically. According to a post by the Harvard Library , LibraryCloud is now officially a part of the Library toolset.

Social Learning is NOT a new training trend

Jane Hart

I’ve written a few postings recently (notably Social Learning doesn’t mean what you think it does ) where I have tried to show how the fundamental changes in how businesses are operating, require a fundamental change in how the L&D function needs to view workplace learning. Support provided as close to the workflow as possible (ie not in a separate place or online space). Workflow audits. Learning delivered in a LMS considered to be in the workflow.

Overcoming the Course and Control mindset hurdles

Jane Hart

I refer to this as informalizing and socializing formal learning – and it is of course a good first step, but it is not addressing the bigger picture of how to support learning as it is really happening informally and socially in the workflow. Change required is. Change required is.
