From managing learning to building an Enterprise Learning Network

personal-96865_640UPDATED 11 December. Some of the content of this whitepaper will be republished within my upcoming Social Learning Handbook 2014

I’ve recently been working with some organisations helping them use their internal Enterprise Social Network (ESN) to offer a wider range of learning initiatives and inspire a culture of continuous social learning in the workplace. This is an ideal approach to move organizational thinking from a purely training mindset, where the focus is on managing learning to one of supporting learning in different ways.

By building an Enterprise Learning Network within your existing ESN you are no longer constrained by traditional training models and infrastructure (eg LMS), so can inspire, encourage support and embed social learning, knowledge sharing and collaboration throughout the organisation in many more modern and appealing ways.

    Bit of a latecomer to this post Jane, but an interesting read. I’d be interested on your thoughts on cultural aspects. If the organisation and its employees were already helping one another and sharing knowledge in an analogue way then I’d imagine it’s very easy to place an ESN on top of that.

    Does the opposite apply though, and if not, how would one go about building such a culture?
