Research: Revolutionize Corporate Learning: Beyond Formal, Informal, Mobile, Social Dichotomies

A report for business decision makers interested in abolishing traditional corporate training functions, creating instead vibrant modern collaborative cultures. Why?

The corporate learning field is in dire need of bravery, insight, creativity and boldness. It has been stuck in an antiquated rut for too long. Full classrooms and smile-sheet summaries only indicate employees can successfully sit through training, not that these strategies demonstrate value or engender growth in competitive organizations.

With a nod toward early twentieth-century innovations, moving the art world toward natural forms, the corporate education function should aim to become learning nouveau. The people responsible for fostering education throughout organizations ought to consider becoming artists.

A good way you might use this article/resource is to:

Extract some key sections that are relevant to your own organisation.

Circulate them to senior business stakeholders as pre-reading and stage-setting in advance of a meeting/workshop to assess what's needed for a successful 70:20:10 implementation.

Structure the meeting/workshop around the Resourcing Your 70:20:10 Implementation workshop activity (in the TOOLKIT and available for IMPLEMENT members).

The Resourcing Your 70:20:10 Implementation activity is a 1-2 hour workshop with associated action plan. There is checklist for the group to work through, to assess readiness level, to define mitigating actions, and to prioritise. Agreed actions can be captured in the action planning template.

Typically, this is the type of process you might pay a consultant to lead.  With this toolkit, you can drive it yourself.
