Example text

We conducted an online “Delphi” discussion on current practices and future directions for continuous learning in organizations and invited academic researchers, practitioners, and executives whom we believe are opinion leaders and experts to participate. First, we needed to learn how to “get” a group online, and we thank Joseph Fung for his valuable assistance. Then, we posed sets of questions during the course of 10 weeks to engender discussion with our participants. The first set of questions focused on the meaning of learning: • What is individual learning?

It is risky for people. It is risky for organizations. We know this is an odd way to start a book on continuous learning, but we want to address these risks outright. What we are presenting is not simple. We have no silver bullet. We have no magic solution. Organizations and the people in them who want to embrace continuous learning—who truly see the need for it—are not in for an easy time. Why is continuous learning risky for individuals? If you need to learn, that means you have to admit that you do not know something.

Individuals, groups, and organizations need to learn continuously to be ready for these changes and create a world that maximizes their chances for success. What do we mean by learning and continuous learning and how does this apply to individuals, groups, and organizations? We think of people learning, but groups and organizations learn too. Learning is the process of acquiring new skills, knowledge, and worldviews. At the individual level, learning is manifest in new behaviors. At the team level, learning is evident in changing communications between team members, standard operating procedures, and behavioral routines.
