Over at the TogetherLearn site, I’ve added a post about ‘what it takes‘. I guess it’s the ‘how do we make this work’ in me, but I wanted to wrap some concrete definition about their ‘the future of the training department‘. I very much agree with their view, but was concerned it could be viewed as too difficult.
Note that they are largely talking about a move to a self-help environment, as I discussed in my last post on the training department of the future. I reckon, however, that a truly deep revisit and rethink will look at formal learning, portals, content governance and more, as well as the social learning component. Still, the process is largely the same, it’s just that the scope is larger. Just doing the social component, however, is likely to be the best short-term investment to get large benefits from a small step.
Realize that the roadmap isn’t going to be as specific as might be desired, but it helps to take an objective look from an experienced perspective and at least line up some near-term goals as well as some long-term desires, and figure out some steps that will take you there. I can’t see an alternative, can you?
