Quickly, now, “What word or words pop into your head if I say Learning?” This was the barrier that kept me from starting the Real Learning Revolution a few nights back. The L-word.

09/09Continuous learning for speed to proficiency - Collaborative Learning
                    Proficiency isn’t attained in a class, it takes a systematic combination of training, reinforcement, and informal learning. Being in the readiness business is really being in the business of building capability; of helping learners move from novice to expert in as short a time as […]
09/08Learning Technology or Training Technology - Collaborative Learning
Learning Technology or Training Technology Most learning management systems (LMS’s) are great at helping instructors replicate the worst practices of education electronically: lecture and multiple choice tests. When LMS’s go beyond this, there are still factors that cause us to think within a very short and narrow box called “learning equals content-based courses.” In other […]
08/31We need 21st Century Learning Systems - Collaborative Learning
As L&D moves from being a training department to a learning organization, LMS’s will need to support the new types of learning required. To support this we need new types of learning systems. In my view, a 21st century learning system needs the following characteristics, as shown in the picture above. Social learning must be […]
08/25Who owns knowledge management? - Collaborative Learning
IT owning knowledge management is like the stadium builder coaching the basketball team. I was working with a disability and life insurance company a few years ago, and was talking to their director of knowledge management. She was livid. “You’re not going to believe what the IT director just told me,” she said. “What’s that?” […]
08/19Minding our own Business - Collaborative Learning
Not every performance problem is a training problem. We need to know which is which, and stick to the problems we can solve. Throwing training at all every performance problem doesn’t work, and guess which department gets blamed when it doesn’t? Some years back, I was called by a person who introduced herself as the […]
08/17Rapid eLearning? I don’t think so. - Collaborative Learning
Rapid eLearning is basically fancy content presentation. And if content equaled learning, universities could be replaced by libraries. A few years ago, I was working with a company who needed to revamp their project management training. The old training department had very little power, and basically was tasked with feeding whatever slide decks subject matter […]
08/12The Goal is Speed to Proficiency - Collaborative Learning
Two very intelligent colleagues of mine, Christy Keener and Tom Hilgart, introduced me to this simple yet extremely useful model for thinking about what it takes to enable a person to be ready for their job. Awareness is “knowing about.” It’s the ability to define terms, know where resources are located, explain a business process […]
08/10Learning objectives: It’s all in the verb - Collaborative Learning
We need to develop learning objectives that relate to the type of action learners need to do. Learning Objectives They say that good results without good management come from good luck, not good management. I would suggest further that without good performance objectives, managers don’t even know when their reports have achieved the results they […]
08/03We must stop measuring learning - Collaborative Learning
We must stop measuring learning for one simple reason. The only two people who care about your learning metrics are you and your mom. And honestly, she doesn’t care. She’s just pretending to be interested. An executive team meeting at ABC Inc. Imagine being a fly on the wall at the end-of-year wrap up meeting […]

01/17Learning about fast learning - Learning Alliances
Sean Murphy and I have been experimenting with a form of fast learning — and figuring out what we’re doing as we go along.  We’ve evolved from thinking of it as a clinic to something else. The current tag that I’m using on Twitter and in Evernote is mvpOODA. At the very beginning the OODA […]
