My pal Mark Britz (@britz) turned me onto this paper by John Hagel, III, John Seely Brown and Duleesha Kulasooriya published by Deloitte University Press on January 1.
The paper’s objective is to present a “clearly defined taxonomy” that provides executives “a decision framework to take performance to the next level” using ecosystems.
Now, what does this mean to those currently working in the Learning and Development field? Or even to the knowledge worker/learner? Is this a framework to use in our own departments or is it essential business knowledge to leverage as we move from creating courses to building support networks (ecosystems?) that empower learning in the workflow?
Well that is something we would like to talk about! And by “we” I mean me, Mark, Mike Taylor (@tmiket), Rory Francis (@PDRory), and dropping in for a bit Janet Laane Effron (@jleffron). Learning from our network has become an essential part of our work lives and what better way to wrap our collective heads around this framework than talking it out?
So if you are interested, please read the article and plan to join us for Google + Hangout to discuss. Let me know if your interested and we’ll add you to the circle (first 10 only of course).
We plan to meet and chat for just an hour on Friday, February 15th at 12:00pm EST.
See you there!
