Authors: Oliver Tian, Vesa Salminen, Shanlynn Lee
Abstract: Nowadays business environment has become increasingly complex with which individuals and organizations must deal with. Competencies behind environmental changes or emerging technologies are essential to manage when facing customer expectations and new challenges to solve.Learning new competencies need to deliver real change. Learning Just-in-Case models are no longer the correct recipe. There is an unquestionable distinction between learning and performance objectives. Employees must be able to easily access an answer or a short piece of learning content while working to supplement the role of action and reflection. What are the ingredients and recipe to transfer to all appropriate (and no inappropriate) information to the learner, and, ultimately, deliver real business impact? Let’s make learning FUN and help learners to re-bundle nutritious learning contents to discover relevant and timely knowledge for a fulfilling work to be done.The goal of this article is to identify and analyse the way learning is adopted by the individual learner or learner’s group and how unbundling learning packages are influencing on learning behaviours and learning experiences. This article analyses shortfalls and shifts in learning expectations regarding current learning and how unbundling training packages can be designed and delivered to the learners. It observes drivers and human factors leading to an efficient learning environment. A generic perception of this analysis work is that training is oriented and executed towards Just-in-Time learning. This poses a great challenge to the formation of new learning packages and adoption of new knowledge and skills.This research is partly constructive, conceptual and analytical, because it introduces the concept of Just-in-Time learning and challenges when executing learning packages accordingly. Data and knowledge for this concept creation has been collected over some years on continuous flow from literature studies and by analyzing real implementation cases of training.This presentation will discuss some shortfalls regarding Just-in-Case learning in the current era, and how unbundling training packages can be designed and delivered to the learners. It will also discuss the various issues leading to the shift in learning expectations over the recent years. More importantly, it attempts to understand the drivers and human factors which build up an efficient learning environment. a generic perception of this analysis work is that training is oriented and executed at least partially towards Just-in-Time learning. This poses a great challenge to the formation of new learning packages and adoption of new knowledge and skills.
