2012 saw the world gripped by a Korean artist-turned-global-phenomenon thanks to YouTube while Facebook registered its billionth user. Fast-changing innovative technologies have taken L&D to the tipping point of change and, with this in mind, I have gazed into my crystal ball to predict steps to success for 2013….
CEO & Chief Happiness Officer
- Social learning will become must-have rather than nice-to-have as it moves to an integral part of knowledge learning
- L&D professionals evolve from teachers to curators to provide the context in which conversations are held and will filter and share the best with the organization.
- L&D moves from traditional lessons to contextual intelligence. Product innovation has simply become too fast for “prescribed” learning as people need rapid product knowledge beyond what a product is and does. Technologies today scale knowledge to bring thousands of relevant conversations at the right time.
- Leadership understanding becomes critical mass. Social technologies will become the norm for general business use and there will be an escalation in organizations using rapid knowledge transfer to improve performance.
- The true L&D professional emerges as the role expands to embrace creative thinking, business collaboration, and focus on speed and delivery against business objectives.
