According to research published by Harvard Business School (HBS), organisations across the globe are experiencing ‘The Great Training Robbery’ because the correct conditions and culture for learning are not in place. People are not ready and willing to change, and ultimately learn.
Organisations are facing unprecedented levels of change as they seek to remain competitive and gain new markets. One of the critical challenges facing organisations is the acquisition of skills in this new landscape.
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.
It’s that time of year again—the annual Speexx Exchange conference in Berlin is right around the corner! This leading industry event on talent management practices brings together learning and development (L&D) practitioners from around the world for a full day of networking, sharing and learning.
As an industry, pharma and life sciences is leading the way with evidence-based practice and therefore it is surprising that organisations are not applying this valuable practice to support people to transform as they grapple with the skills acquisition challenge.
