Rapid change is the new fabric of doing business. Products and services that were revolutionary two years ago are rendered obsolete if they don’t adapt to market changes fast enough. VUCA – a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous and is the term coined to describe the new environment.
In this VUCA world we discuss the current state of Learning design. Join the discussion and hear from your peers in the room and consider whether we as a profession are addicted to “beautiful”.
Facilitator’s Point of View
In the corporate world we have moved away from designing what is needed for learners and moved more and more towards complex and ‘impressive’ learning offerings.
LearningCafe Point of View
LearningCafe has long held the view that “one size fits all” high end design approach undermines the value that L&D is perceived to deliver. We need to have solutions that fit the budget and timelines that business have available.
- As a profession is Learning addicted to ‘beautiful’? Why?
- Is there a place for ‘home made’ or ‘ugly but effective and cheap’ Learning in organisations?
- What can be done to change this? Are stakeholder and business ready for this?
- How do people learn every day?
- Perhaps we have linked our value to ‘beautiful’
- Where does the expectation that all Learning should be beautiful, come from? Is it the business or L&D or vendors?
