I'd like to hear comments on an indirect quote from Leif Edvinsson,
Director of Intellectual Capital for Skandia AFS; from "Elusive
Assets" by Anne Stuart, in CIO: the magazine for information
executives, 11/15/95, p.34.
--The indirect quote:
The learning organization is obsolete, yielding only half an answer to
the question of how to best manage knowledge and neglecting to deliver
any value added. What we need are intelligent organizations that
focus on both learning and teaching.
Competitive advantage goes to organizations that reduce the turnaround
time between learning and teaching, and information technologies can
help close that gap.
I think this goes to the heart of what my organization is trying to do
in Sales Training: not only train salespeople, not only help them
develop effective learning strategies, but also to get everyone
involved in reinforcing new learning with each other instead of
repeating outmoded habits and frames of mind.
