The starting conditions, the founding principles upon which your knowledge and learning programs are designed, determine the success of your Knowledge Management and Rapid learning programmes.
- The three principles, set out in the slides below, are essential to the success of any organisational knowledge and learning system where the desired outcome is adaptive capability (resilience/agility), high performance and high reliability.
- For those interested, the three principles are drawn from research into how people, specifically adults, acquire, use, share and create knowledge. For further reading, I recommend Knowles et al. (The adult learner) and Hattie & Yates (Visible learning and the science of how we learn). However, one of the most powerful influences upon my work in the areas of Knowledge Management, knowledge as a capability and Human Resource Development (learning agility and the power of learning to learn) has been the collective work of Sir Ken Robinson.
