Practices and products that once put your organization at the top of your industry might now provide for only its basic survival. Global and virtual competition, rapid innovation and relentless change mean leaders and employees need to learn constantly. Learning requires curated access to information and knowledge about emerging practices, new technologies, and political, economic and environmental happenings around the globe. Goldman Sachs Chief Learning Officer Jason Wingard explains that companies need experts to collect, process, analyze and disseminate information through training, events, social media and “learning portals.” Though his arguments slide in spots of muddled writing, getAbstract recommends Wingard’s valuable eye-opener on learning to executives, CLOs, managers, start-ups, entrepreneurs and business students.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why organizations must emphasize learning and knowledge, and
- How your organization can integrate learning and strategy.
