“Change is a learning process and learning is a change process” – Beckard and Pritchard
Learning and Change Management are joined at the hip. As Learning professionals become more experienced they begin to see that learning interventions isolated from the larger work context are likely to be ineffective.
We talk to an experienced panel of Learning and Change professionals about their views, opinions and experience in applying change management to Learning initiatives involving classroom, online, blended and social learning.
Some questions we discuss with the panel:
- What are the current approaches/ trends for managing change for Learning initiatives ? We look at contemporary Change Management frameworks including the Burke and Lewin Model of Organisational Performance and Change.
- Their experiences including:
- Approach for designing and implementing a Technical Academy.
- Change management for learning technology projects in financial services.
- Change approach when Learning is integrated with other HR processes for large transformation initiatives.
- Many Learning professionals are skilled in change management (and visa versa). Does this result in better results due to closer integration ?
- Do the change approaches differ for technology enabled learning ?
- Are the change approaches for Learning meeting the needs to be responsive and agility ?
We have an experienced panel who are passionate about Change Management for Learning.
