by | Dec 24, 2008 | Interviews

We were thrilled to talk to Charles Jennings , winner of the outstanding contribution to the learning Industry at Wolce this year just before Christmas.

 

On the eve of his retirement from his role as Global Head of Learning at Thomson Reuters, he discussed with us:

  • The challenges of establishing a global learning strategy for the newly merged company
  • The economic drivers underpinning the new strategy
  • How the new strategy plans to ‘sweat the investment’ in existing learning technologies even further
  • How they plan to support 70:20:10 model of learning moving forward
  • Tips on how to get the strategy pass the board
  • Some of the tangible benefits to the business

Charles has been a supporter of Towards Maturity since the beginning and we extend our thanks on behalf of the Towards Maturity community for his insights and advice and our congratulations on his well deserved award!  We look forward to working with him in his new role in 2009.

This interview is the first of  the Next Generation Learning @ Work series.

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.
