How to Harness Informal Learning Without Killing It   read more

People learn a lot, spontaneously and informally, about how to do their jobs.
“Studies show that people learn much more about what they need to know to do their jobs informally. So the big question is how to harness informal learning in a way that improves what is happening without destroying the informality – without destroying the very thing that makes it so powerful.”
Avoid wasting time and money on something you don’t need and learn to identify your true needs and differentiate between these fundamentally different categories.

System Selection for Staff L&D   read more

A method to assist in selecting a computer based system for supporting staff learning and development goals.
The method we describe here helps break down the complexity of selecting a computer based (L&D) system into simple steps, and provides a framework and process within which to work so you can make a robust decision that minimises risk – a far cry from the risky way that many systems are selected on the basis of supplier reputation, or internal politics, or the fact that a system already enjoys success with your competitors.

Leadership and Learning   read more

Their interdependence and what that means to you.
“Leadership does not stand on its own as a panacea. Organisations are complex systems and there are dependencies that come into play. Despite the fashion for leadership development, care must be taken that it is done with an eye to the entire system. For example, there is a strong link between leadership and learning, and the interesting thing is that it is a two way link.”

New Managers   read more

How to support new managers so they become capable more quickly.
“New managers are often left to sink or swim, and the water is deep. How can we support them as they start their role so that they don’t drown?
Losing new managers as a result of drowning is really quite careless because it is easy to give them the support they need to stay afloat long enough to start swimming capably on their own, or decide that swimming is something they really are not suited for.”

Capability at Work   read more

How to find out what stops people being capable.
Capability is a slippery concept. Given that any organisation has a purpose – and achieving that purpose is dependent on the people in the organisation being capable of doing all the tasks that need to be done – one would expect that capability would be so fundamental to success that people would have a handle on it. Or at least the successful people would.
