Learning organizations sound great to just about everyone. But how do you actually “create” them? Attempting to promote learning in many organizations can seem daunting at best and impossible at worst…especially if you don't feel particularly empowered to do so.
In this session, Matt will focus on what you can do. First, he discusses what a learning organization is and why they are important for the future of many companies. Next, he'll share approaches and techniques for growing learning environments; covering everything from being and individual contributor on a product development team, to senior leaders who'd like to start organizational programs. Finally, he will end by reviewing challenges and pitfalls to be aware of as you begin to amplify learning in your organization.
