I've been following the threads in this group for a week or so and haven't
yet been inclined to respond, but I'd be very interested in any threads that
deal with my four favourite subjects about learning:
(a) How do you motivate and reward Continuous Learning in organizations?
(the "I'm to busy to learn about that" problem)
(b) Since everyone learns differently, how do you develop curricula that are
robust and flexible enough to serve at least most people?
(c) How do you deal with irascible senior executives who think that, because
they have been successful (by traditional short-focus measures) in business,
they don't need to learn new things (like how to use computers)?
(d) How do you strike the magic balance between specialized learning
(necessary to develop distinctive competencies) and generalist learning
(necessary to creativity, innovation and idea cross-pollination)?
