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.

Organisations need to take Transformation One Step at a Time

In order to achieve true and lasting transformation, organisations need to take it one step, one stage at a time, says Piers Lea, chief strategy officer at LEO and Learning Technologies Group plc, and a Towards Maturity ambassador. It’s also what the latest Towards Maturity benchmark report ‘The Transformation Curve’, says when it outlines the four stages of maturity – Optimising Training, Taking Control, Letting Go and Sharing Responsibility.

Top Tips for Building Habits

Top Tips for Building Habits

As learning professionals, we want to design interventions that lead to lasting change. Shifting behaviour involves a process that continues long after the programme finishes. Our research has shown that mature learning organisations are more successful at integrating learning and work, but they don’t abandon formal learning. One of their strategies is to design learning campaigns and programmes that build and encourage new habits.
