What is Agile Learning?
As is process
The approach of L&D department in most of the companies is to make an auction and buy an online platform, in order to make sure that the employees have a context to acquire information.
But every company should keep in mind that the learning process should be centred around specific job responsibilities and the skills which are required by these tasks.
Moreover, the employees do not have the same experience, expertise, knowledge and learning style, so why would be the information delivered in the exact same way for all of them?
To be process
The L&D departments need to change the speed of delivery in order to bring more skills in organisation.
Most importantly, the L&D departments need to reevaluate the way they are bringing knowledge and skills in organisations, adding a range of features to their learning approach, such as:
- micro-learning and mobile learning
- personalised learning pathways
- just in time information
These are some of the basics for a company to sustain the business agility and to align to the future of work!
Another fundamental aspect is employee engagement which comes from empowering employees to develop according to a direction they choose and to a specific pace they set. This is why mobile learning should be in place: to have the right content at the right time to support their growth.
Learning as a foundation
Learning is the foundation of innovation. Without learning a company will not innovate. And what happens with companies that do not innovate? Sooner or later that company will die. This is why is very important for companies to have a learning' culture.
