Article: The Learning Transfer Elephant

Learning Transfer Elephant
Date: 11 May, 2020
The Training Industry magazine has published an article I wrote on one of the elephants I see ignored by L&D: Learning Transfer. How would you define the purpose of training? Something like… “The purpose of training is to improve competence, and thereby, change the way people do things, so they perform better and get better results at work.” How well do your training programmes create better performance? That is, how well does the learning from your training events transfer into new behaviour in the workplace? The article points you in the right direction to start adding learning transfer activities to your training courses, whether they are virtual or face-2-face. Link to the article.

Every organisation has a learning environment, or learnscape. It is the ecosystem that comprises all that is within or around an organization that has an impact on learning. Employees, and sometimes customers and suppliers, exist within this learnscape; how much or how easily they learn is dependent on how well the learnscape...

Multitasking – Myth and Mystery

Man with multiple arms doing many things at once
Date: 4 Mar, 2020
Can you really multitask efficiently? There are many people who swear that they can, and just as many studies that say they are fooling themselves, and that efficient multitasking is impossible. So what is the truth of it? First, we need to take a look at what we mean by “multitasking.” The idea arose in the world of computing, where a computer that’s designed to multitask can run more than one program at the same time. For example, it can be running a backup task at the same time that you are writing a document. From a tasking point of view, the way our human minds work is surprisingly similar to the way a computer works. The computer runs an extra program to manage the multitasking. It switches the central processing unit from one task to another, depending on the priority that has been assigned to a particular task and its current need based on what the user is doing. So in reality, it’s not really multitasking but task switching, d...
