Overview/Description
Today's organizational leaders know that cultivating a learning culture means more than providing training sessions – it means sustaining an ongoing process of learning using various practices, all integrated with the operations and routines of the business. It means analyzing needs and planning strategically before launching a learning initiative. It means setting up diverse opportunities for acquiring, creating, and sharing knowledge. And it means ensuring that employees have the chance to practice and apply what they have learned in a way that makes a significant difference to the business. This course delves into four key practices that augment and support organizational learning: planning for learning, building knowledge, diffusing knowledge, and applying knowledge in the organization. For each of these practices, the course outlines strategies and guidelines that help bolster the organization's learning culture and its competitiveness within its given market.
