Last night i began evaluating the results of the Learning Practices Survey. With 235 organizations taking part, the results are more a catalyst to thinking than a description of what’s really going on out there. I’ll toss out highlights here over the next few weeks, but if you want to see the whole enchilada, check out the discussion in the Internet Time Community.
While the access to the net and use of social media is way up, the overall picture is not rosy.
Overlook the seemingly positive ratio of agree:disagree. Instead, ask yourself what the 1/3 who don’t know how their work links to the organization’s goal are doing. How do you plan to delegate to them?
Mayday! Mayday! We are racing down the highway at 200 miles per hour. There’s a brick wall up ahead. This hasn’t improved in two years. More and more organizations are going haywire. Folks, isn’t it time to seek a new approach?
In 45 minutes, I’m going to walk over to the LearnX Conference here in Melbourne. I expect to hear the usual wisdom: “We need to think out of the box.”
I don’t agree. Out-of-the-box thinking is no longer sufficient. What I plan to emphasize in my closing keynote tomorrow, and go to work on in next week’s workshops, in Melbourne and Sydney is this:
It’s time for a whole new box.
