Leading a Learning Organisation – Sydney Fishbowl Discussion

On Wednesday 14 March 2018 PSK Events hosted a Fishbowl Discussion in Sydney on the topic of ‘Leading a Learning Organisation.’  While I couldn’t attend I joined the #PSKevents backchannel on Twitter and participated in an active discussion on topics such as:

  • shifting how Learning and Development is perceived in an organisation
  • creating a learning culture (or, more accurately – an organisational culture that promotes learning)
  • creating a learning environment
  • speaking business language
  • learning from failure
  • user generated content

It was a lively backchannel discussion, with some differing perspectives on the use of business language versus ‘L&D’ language in particular.

I’ve curated a collection of the tweets and organised them by theme.  You can access this discussion record in ‘Wakelet.

There will be two more Fishbowl discussions on the same topic (you can register at the links below):

I will update this post with curated collections from the backchannel after each event, plus a separate analysis / commentary on themes across the three events.

Thanks to Trent Rosen the powerhouse who organises these events, and sponsors Learning Plan and Good Practice.

Curation Capability Description for an Organisation

In the past week I’ve drafted a capability framework for Learning and Development practitioners in a large corporate.  This is a forward-looking framework that will be implemented as part of an organisation-wide transformation of learning.  One of the new activities that the L&D team will undertake is curation.  Coincidentally, this weeks #LDInsight Twitter chat topic was curation.  When I shared a resource on curation that I had used as input to define capability framework for content curation it was spotted by Niall Gavin who had attended the Twitter chat.  He expressed an interest in the capability framework, and I promised to post my draft.

Full draft is shown below, and is also available in pdf.

The framework format was specified by my client.  The following source materials were used as input:

I’m aware of two large corporates in Australia who have roles dedicated to content curation in their Learning and Development teams, and others that use curation as part of solution development.  The value of curation for organisational learning is well-established, although it is less common to have dedicated curator roles in organisations.  Where the organisation is large enough and the value of reusing existing internal and external content is high there can be a case for dedicated curators, even if for a set period of time only as an initiative to establish collections of curated content against strategic capabilities.

Where have you seen content curation used in organisations?  What are your thoughts on the capability framework posted above, and have you seen other definitions of curation as part of a capability framework/model?
