#GuildChat for 07/17/15: The Connected Organization’s Impact on Learning

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, July 17th at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is on the The Connected Organization’s Impact on Learning.

Social Technologies are being adopted by numerous organizations. Many leverage older platforms such as SharePoint, some use smaller chat-based technologies such as Hip Chat or Slack, and others adopt full featured platforms such as Yammer or Jive. All are looking to connect their employees to the expertise they need and the resources they want to innovate, reduce redundancy and get their work done more efficiently.2015-01-09_11-14-16

As organizations implement these technologies what are the impacts they are really having? What new roles have emerged and how have others developed new skills to better leverage these tools? Finally, what is happening to organizational learning? What real changes are being seen and what promises have not quite come to fruition?

Join us as #GuildChat looks at the Connected Organization and the impact of an always on, always available workforce.

Prospective questions:

Q1. What does the phrase “a connected organization” mean to you? #GuildChat

Q2. Are there drawbacks of an organization being connected via social technology? If so what are they? #GuildChat

Q3. What are the unique opportunities/challenges a connected organization presents to traditional L&D depts? #GuildChat

Q4. Why should L&D be involved in creating a connected organization? #GuildChat

Q5. Are there organizational L&D practices that might become moot due to increased connectedness? Examples?

Q6. As organizations become more connected how does this change current roles? What new roles form? Which may disappear? #GuildChat

Q7. What one thing can you do differently to support the emerging connected orgainzation? #GuildChat

2:09 PM Learning_Dude A1) An org that thinks of email as a semi-last resort; there are so many better ways to connect. *cough Twitter* #guildchat
2:09 PM jimbobtyer RT @BenCpdx: A1. An org that has no gatekeepers to prevent flow of connections and knowledge. #GuildChat
2:09 PM RaftLearning @technkl @jimbobtyer But FOCUSED vision. We have leaders w/vision that’s all over the place. Disjointed. #GuildChat
2:09 PM urbie #guildchat A1 A connected org is something one finds hard to do without once they’ve tasted the kook-aid.. people wired for improvement..

2:10 PM RaftLearning @technkl @Learning_Dude I hate voicemail. #GuildChat
2:10 PM technkl @RaftLearning @jimbobtyer well yes, focus is important from way back though, but vision is now up there too #guildchat
2:11 PM RaftLearning @Tracy_Parish Not here. To my knowledge I’m the only employee who taps into community outside the org structure. #GuildChat
2:11 PM technkl @Tracy_Parish @buffer I think, they do everything very well lol :-) #guildchat
2:11 PM chris_benz @JD_Dillon 14 emails? Wouldn’t you just prefer a conference call, JD? ;-)
#guildchat
2:11 PM eLearningGuild Q2. Are their drawbacks of an organization being connected via social technology? If so what are they? #GuildChat
2:11 PM Tracy_Parish Ah, but should a connected org have only one mode of connection – no vm, no email, no twitter – all tools. #GuildChat
2:11 PM Quinnovator RT @eLearningGuild: Q2. Are their drawbacks of an organization being connected via social technology? If so what are they? #GuildChat
2:12 PM JD_Dillon @chris_benz Don’t make me pull out my HATRED slide deck … :-) #GuildChat
2:12 PM Quinnovator a2) an org can’t be connected if it’s a Miranda org (anything you say can/will be used against you) #guildchat
2:12 PM urbie A1 Caveat Discentem.. Note that a connected organization transcends walls. #guildchat is one. So is #lrnchat #txeduchat .. get the idea?
2:12 PM CRobinsonKeys A1) I think organizations are striving to be connected, but working without a roadmap. #GuildChat
2:12 PM technkl @RaftLearning @Learning_Dude me too, was surprised they were doing an upgrdae to the system! #guildchat
2:12 PM Tracy_Parish RT @Quinnovator: a2) an org can’t be connected if it’s a Miranda org (anything you say can/will be used against you) #guildchat
2:12 PM CoachRWZ A1 a connected org is one that draws insights and feedback from all participants in a their process and each use it to improve #guildchat
2:12 PM technkl RT @eLearningGuild: Q2. Are their drawbacks of an organization being connected via social technology? If so what are they? #GuildChat
2:13 PM JD_Dillon A2) Potential drawbacks sure – must consider impact for specific org context and address/flex w/ people #GuildChat  https://t.co/kZkkiUdyrO
2:13 PM AnadeliaFadeev A2. Only if not everyone in the company understands its mission. Communication is key! #GuildChat @eLearningGuild
2:13 PM kimherb .@Quinnovator A miranda org…nice! #guildchat
2:13 PM Quinnovator a2) a connected but unfocused org could be inefficient (hence Coherent Organization) #guildchat
2:13 PM Learning_Dude Yes. That. Very nice, Ryan! #guildchat https://t.co/slWdSyosgE
2:13 PM JD_Dillon RT @Quinnovator: a2) an org can’t be connected if it’s a Miranda org (anything you say can/will be used against you) #guildchat
2:13 PM Tracy_Parish a2) Connected via social technology – needs to have open lines of communication. agree with @Quinnovator #GuildChat
2:13 PM technkl A2 Hmmm, drawback to social connectedness? No. #guildchat
2:13 PM RaftLearning A2) It’s possible to over-share, or hyper-focus on the connectedness. Social media really can be a time-suck. #GuildChat
2:13 PM JD_Dillon A2) Culture must support sharing in BIG way to avoid drawbacks like fear, capacity, prioritization, etc. #GuildChat  https://t.co/kZkkiUdyrO
2:13 PM JD_Dillon A2) Culture must support sharing in BIG way to avoid drawbacks like fear, capacity, prioritization, etc. #GuildChat  https://t.co/kZkkiUdyrO
2:13 PM Learning_Dude @Tracy_Parish @Quinnovator Without too much in the way of rules and red tape. #guildchat
2:14 PM technkl RT @JD_Dillon: A2) Culture must support sharing in BIG way to avoid drawbacks like fear, capacity, prioritization, etc. #GuildChat  https:/…
2:14 PM chris_benz A2) Possible leaking of confidential info, but I think the perception of the risk is bigger than the actual risk. #GuildChat
2:14 PM CoachRWZ @Learning_Dude #GuildChat minus the typo
2:14 PM jimbobtyer A2) An org can use any technology to enable connection. It’s the culture that matters. #GuildChat
2:14 PM CRobinsonKeys A1 Good description @CoachRWZ but doesn’t that also assume an engaged workforce #GuildChat
2:14 PM Learning_Dude A2) There are certainly perceived drawbacks: someone might say something inappropriate or incorrect. #guildchat
2:14 PM JD_Dillon A2) Can’t lead with technology – lead change through people and meaningful contribution #GuildChat
2:14 PM technkl @RaftLearning it is, but the bigger problem is under-sharing, kiind of like fear of too much success :-) #guildchat
2:14 PM jenniferafrost Social media can add too much information all over! Maybe wrong info too! #guildchat
2:14 PM urbie RT @eLearningGuild: Q2. Are their drawbacks of an organization being connected via social technology? If so what are they? #GuildChat
2:15 PM Learning_Dude A2) b. I challenge those fears by demanding the community be allowed to manage itself with thoughtful moderation. #guildchat
2:15 PM chris_benz A2) Also, I imagine it makes hierarchy-focused people nervous. A minion talking directly with a CEO? Gasp! #GuildChat
2:15 PM sorokti RT @jimbobtyer: A2) An org can use any technology to enable connection. It’s the culture that matters. #GuildChat
2:15 PM BenCpdx a2) Problems occur if all don’t feel included. Work to level social field, avoid by coaching, role modeling, encouragement, #GuildChat
2:15 PM RaftLearning @JD_Dillon Social is a tool and a means to an end, not the goal. #GuildChat
2:15 PM Learning_Dude A2) Used inappropriately, and outside the context of work, it can be distracting. #guildchat
2:15 PM RaftLearning @technkl Or fear of information-stealing. #GuildChat
2:15 PM JD_Dillon A2) Orgs must remain consistent but flexible in process and tech use – don’t chain yourself to the way things work today #GuildChat
2:15 PM CRobinsonKeys A2) I agree @JD_Dillion #GuildChat
2:16 PM BenCpdx @Learning_Dude That’s no different than email or live meeting, though. #GuildChat
2:16 PM Quinnovator a2) probs when folks don’t know how to work and play well together; don’t assume, develop explicitly #guildchat
2:16 PM technkl @RaftLearning @JD_Dillon yes, but it’s a very efficient means to an end that does away with innefficient means to end #guildchat
2:16 PM RaftLearning @Learning_Dude I just wish everyone could act like adults. So many problems would be eliminated. #GuildChat
2:16 PM Lectora RT @eLearningGuild: Q2. Are their drawbacks of an organization being connected via social technology? If so what are they? #GuildChat
2:16 PM CoachRWZ Yes! I’m working on a blog right now on how to get both! #guildchat https://t.co/H8pANbA7Sc
2:16 PM AlwaysBreaking A2) Social media can be distracting, terribly distracting. #guildchat
2:16 PM Learning_Dude @RaftLearning Oh geez. Don’t get me started! ;) #guildchat
2:16 PM Quinnovator RT @JD_Dillon: A2) Orgs must remain consistent but flexible in process and tech use – don’t chain yourself to the way things work today #Gu…
2:16 PM technkl @RaftLearning hehe, again there’s more likelyhood of information not caring lol #guildchat
2:16 PM Learning_Dude @BenCpdx I know, Ben. I know. SMH #guildchat
2:16 PM AnadeliaFadeev I agree 100%, companies should be open to adapting new technologies #GuildChat https://t.co/oAcAqhRuNm
2:16 PM RaftLearning @Quinnovator True! Tone of voice and body language don’t exist online/in writing. #GuildChat
2:17 PM jimbobtyer I’m having a hard time of thinking of a technology that isn’t social (phone, email, ESNs etc.).  It’s all about habits #GuildChat
2:17 PM urbie #guildchat A2 No.
2:17 PM kimherb @jenniferafrost I agree. Especially on the wrong info perpetuating itself. #guildchat
2:17 PM Learning_Dude The fears that prevent implementation of social are already occurring in other places. At least with social you’ll know! #guildchat
2:17 PM technkl @RaftLearning @Quinnovator there’s different expectations of immediacy of replies between ppl too #guildchat
2:17 PM RaftLearning @Learning_Dude I work with DOCTORS. #GuildChat
2:17 PM GarrettMesser A2) There is also the impact of social scrutiny, if society doesn’t agree with organization’s stance on topics or direction #guildchat
2:17 PM CoachRWZ so much disengagement is a result of employees not feeling like they have ownership outside of desk #guildchat https://t.co/H8pANbA7Sc
2:17 PM AlwaysBreaking A2) Some people want a separation of work and social life. I don’t want to share everything w/ coworkers that I do w/ friends. #guildchat
2:17 PM technkl Yup, very true.  #guildchat https://t.co/5bBXGuC6Y6
2:18 PM JD_Dillon A2) My team uses HipChat to remain connected and transparent – but if a better tool shows up tomorrow we’re able to shift #GuildChat
2:18 PM eLearningGuild Q3. What are the unique opportunities/challenges a connected organization presents to traditional L&D depts? #GuildChat
2:18 PM RaftLearning @AlwaysBreaking Still trying to disentangle personal from work into 2 Twitter accounts. Time consuming. #GuildChat
2:18 PM technkl RT @eLearningGuild: Q3. What are the unique opportunities/challenges a connected organization presents to traditional L&D depts? #GuildChat
2:18 PM chris_benz I feel your pain, Gail! Been there. #GuildChat https://t.co/hVHdvBVbu8
2:18 PM technkl @RaftLearning @AlwaysBreaking very, I just ditched the personal lol #guildchat
2:18 PM urbie #guildchat A2 Unless.. you’re a controlling mgr. Social tech-know-logy is messy. Ideas come from interaction. Control-less n you’ll be okay
2:19 PM CRobinsonKeys @AnadeliaFadeev I think most companies are open to adapting new technologies, issues arise at the level of individual employee. #GuildChat
2:19 PM WinnerGirl4 A3) Buy-in
#guildchat
2:19 PM jimbobtyer A3) Learning to collaborate more effectively with other depts (IT, Comms, Business etc). Focusing on performance, not training #guildchat
2:19 PM technkl RT @jimbobtyer: A3) Learning to collaborate more effectively with other depts (IT, Comms, Business etc). Focusing on performance, not train…
2:19 PM GarrettMesser A3) speed to respond for changing; behaviors, tools, materials, etc… #guildchat
2:19 PM Learning_Dude @JD_Dillon Have you tried @SlackHQ? #guildchat
2:19 PM RaftLearning A3) Opportunities: global interaction, access to broader base of knowledge and tons more resources, serious mentoring potential. #GuildChat
2:19 PM AlwaysBreaking @jenniferafrost I don’t typically follow/friend coworkers on Twitter or FB, but do on LinkedIn. That’s my separation #guildchat
2:20 PM technkl A3 Openness allowing to escape the silo, share more and allow the information to be free! #guildchat
2:20 PM Quinnovator RT @eLearningGuild: Q3. What are the unique opportunities/challenges a connected organization presents to traditional L&D depts? #GuildChat
2:20 PM urbie RT @eLearningGuild: Q3. What are the unique opportunities/challenges a connected organization presents to traditional L&D depts? #GuildChat
2:20 PM Tracy_Parish That comes down to…don’t blame the hammer if the house falls apart…look to the builder instead. #GuildChat

https://t.co/wiNP8nSdJL

2:20 PM Learning_Dude A3) With transparency comes a different flood of information and awareness. At first, that can be pretty overwhelming. #guildchat
2:20 PM CoachRWZ Q3) it might actually blend them! Turn L&D into org advocates and cross-pollinators #guildchat
2:20 PM CRobinsonKeys When adapting to new tech you also have the demographics of the organization to consider #GuildChat
2:20 PM BenCpdx a3) Requires shift from “training” content to context: Helping folks learn from their connections and PLNs. It’s a new skill. #GuildChat
2:20 PM RaftLearning A3) Challenges: misinformation, disinformation, incomplete information sharing… #GuildChat
2:20 PM AnadeliaFadeev A3. Making learning #mobile friendly. Learn on the go, no need for traditional classrooms #GuildChat@eLearningGuild
2:20 PM technkl @AlwaysBreaking @jenniferafrost what do you do if they follow you? Still have to keep that in mind for what you share #guildchat
2:20 PM JD_Dillon A3) People don’t need us anymore (at least what we tend to be now within orgs) #Guildchat https://t.co/aINIih9uqi
2:20 PM chris_benz A3) The possibility of L&D becoming irrelevant, especially if L&D doesn’t embrace social. #GuildChat
2:20 PM WinnerGirl4 RT @BenCpdx: a3) Requires shift from “training” content to context: Helping folks learn from their connections and PLNs. It’s a new skill. …
2:21 PM BenCpdx RT @CoachRWZ: Q3) it might actually blend them! Turn L&D into org advocates and cross-pollinators #guildchat
2:21 PM RaftLearning @technkl @AlwaysBreaking I’m about to. I don’t care much about that side of it on Twitter. That’s what Facebook is for! #GuildChat
2:21 PM Tracy_Parish Too many unique connections in an organization could lead to “communication silos”.  One not knowing what the other is doing. #GuildChat
2:21 PM jimbobtyer A3) I also think if L&D isn’t taking advantage, other departments will and L&D will lose relevancy.  #guildchat
2:21 PM inkling A3. A big challenge is keeping all important information available, but also secure & up-to-date. #GuildChat
2:21 PM technkl @RaftLearning @AlwaysBreaking even then Facebook is still… well.. facebook lol #guildchat
2:21 PM urbie #guildchat A3 Unique opportunities of a connected organization vs a traditional L&D dept? Depends on the org’s culture.
2:21 PM JD_Dillon A3) When people who need are connected to people who know, training becomes irrelevant #Guildchat
2:21 PM RaftLearning @CoachRWZ LOVE the use of  “cross-pollinators!” #GuildChat
2:21 PM technkl @jimbobtyer you mean L&D hasn’t already lost relevancy? #guildchat
2:22 PM jenniferafrost @technkl @AlwaysBreaking I decided in my life, I just do not share too much personal stuff to anyone. #guildchat
2:22 PM inkling RT @JD_Dillon A3) When people who need are connected to people who know, training becomes irrelevant #Guildchat
2:22 PM WinnerGirl4 @JD_Dillon Or does it just look different?
#guildchat
2:22 PM urbie #guildchat A3 In the 90s when I worked with Intel (in antiquity basically) we were expected to be involved at al levels of the business. +
2:22 PM billbollenbach @jimbobtyer  the collaboration among depts is always a weakness – tech should help facilitate that #guildchat
2:22 PM technkl @jenniferafrost @AlwaysBreaking I share in person, that’s it :-) #guildchat
2:22 PM AlwaysBreaking @technkl @jenniferafrost Twitter is public, so I’ve always been cautious about what I post here. #guildchat
2:22 PM RaftLearning @chris_benz L&D should remake themselves into facilitators. #GuildChat
2:22 PM BenCpdx They need us to be different, help differently. #GuildChat  https://t.co/WRCTwmcwJ9
2:23 PM Learning_Dude …and leadership should help lead that. #guildchat https://t.co/S6jfhcjtIs
2:23 PM jimbobtyer @billbollenbach @billbollenbach tech enables, but isn’t a fix in itself. Otherwise all our jobs would be easy :) #GuildChat
2:23 PM RaftLearning @technkl @AlwaysBreaking Yes, but when you are far away from friends and family it’s helpful. #GuildChat
2:23 PM Quinnovator a3) moving beyond courses; facilitating continual learning instead of owning it #guildchat
2:23 PM chris_benz Should? Agreed. But will? #GuildChat https://t.co/JKjxHDAs4W
2:23 PM AnadeliaFadeev RT @inkling: A3. A big challenge is keeping all important information available, but also secure & up-to-date. #GuildChat
2:23 PM urbie #guildchat A3 A lot of the places I consult are more insular, sadly. So compared to Intel of old I can’t think of unique opps or challenges.
2:23 PM Quinnovator RT @chris_benz: A3) The possibility of L&D becoming irrelevant, especially if L&D doesn’t embrace social. #GuildChat
2:23 PM jenniferafrost @technkl @AlwaysBreaking Yes we need to have more dinners together (actual dinners)! #guildchat
2:23 PM inkling RT @Quinnovator a3) moving beyond courses; facilitating continual learning instead of owning it #guildchat
2:23 PM RaftLearning @JD_Dillon Well, no, training becomes a different thing entirely, but it’s still training. #GuildChat
2:24 PM technkl Courses should be a last resort only if no other means would work #guildchat https://t.co/RY67rncFRF
2:24 PM Learning_Dude @Quinnovator Yep. I see the future of L&D becoming facilitators…not creators in the traditional sense. #guildchat
2:24 PM CRobinsonKeys Agreed @BenCpdx.  We need to adapt to the changing landscape as well to maintain our relevance #GuildChat
2:24 PM BenCpdx Yes! It’s part of the “Revolution.” @Quinnovator #GuildChat https://t.co/HesmNmfz4l
2:24 PM billbollenbach @JD_Dillon is that because people are more independent in their acquisition of knowledge? #guildchat
2:24 PM jimbobtyer RT @Quinnovator a3) moving beyond courses; facilitating continual learning instead of owning it #guildchat > one conversation at at time…
2:24 PM Learning_Dude Respect the knowledge and experience “learners” bring to training. Leverage that. Empower them. Facilitate. Get out of the way! #guildchat
2:24 PM RaftLearning @chris_benz Well, they aren’t very good at their jobs if they aren’t adaptable and flexible. #GuildChat
2:24 PM BenCpdx RT @technkl: Courses should be a last resort only if no other means would work #guildchat https://t.co/RY67rncFRF
2:24 PM urbie #guildchat A3 Caveat: e-mail ain’t social media.
2:24 PM Quinnovator @Learning_Dude reckon there’s still a role for creating (tho’ curation first), but facilitation new and likely more important #guildchat
2:24 PM JD_Dillon @billbollenbach Yes … just like they are in the real-world given resources and enabled tech #Guildchat
2:25 PM technkl @urbie no, but it is social! #guildchat
2:25 PM Tracy_Parish RT @urbie: #guildchat A3 Caveat: e-mail ain’t social media.
2:25 PM Learning_Dude @Quinnovator Yes, there is. I’m still fighting for 200-characters here. ;) #guildchat

2:25 PM eLearningGuild Q4. Why should L&D be involved in creating a connected organization? #GuildChat
2:25 PM technkl RT @eLearningGuild: Q4. Why should L&D be involved in creating a connected organization? #GuildChat
2:25 PM billbollenbach @jimbobtyer true that – it’s the inherent challenge of genuine communication #guildchat
2:25 PM Quinnovator RT @eLearningGuild: Q4. Why should L&D be involved in creating a connected organization? #GuildChat
2:25 PM RaftLearning @BenCpdx @Quinnovator I’m in! Now to get everyone else on board! #GuildChat
2:25 PM urbie #guildchat A3 I think social media within an org may speed things up. If the trust (and safety to toss ideas out there) exists.
2:25 PM Quinnovator a4) for survival! #guildchat ;)
2:25 PM Learning_Dude A4) L&D should be involved because learning is at the heart of everything we do. #guildchat
2:25 PM RaftLearning @technkl You are SO anti-classroom, Nick!! LOL #GuildChat
2:25 PM technkl A4 because it facilitates better informaoni sharing, better learning, and better work. #guildchat
2:25 PM jimbobtyer A4) Because L&D has no choice.  #guildchat

2:25 PM Tracy_Parish To remain relevant. To lead by example.  To faciliate, moderate (maybe) #GuildChat https://t.co/8Wss2d3sqS
2:25 PM recuweb RT @urbie: #guildchat A3 Caveat: e-mail ain’t social media.
2:25 PM Learning_Dude A4) …not learning as a function, but a process of discovery, self-improvement and performance gains. #guildchat
2:26 PM Quinnovator a4) because people who understand people and learning should be driving it (not IT or biz) #guildchat
2:26 PM urbie #guildchat A3 The REAL leverage comes from connections made outside the organization and bringing that conversation inside. Skies the limit.
2:26 PM AnadeliaFadeev A4. The more connected the org is, the more access to knowledge they have #GuildChat @eLearningGuild
2:26 PM technkl @RaftLearning unless there’s free food! Then I’m there! eLearning course, tell me when to wake up #guildchat
2:26 PM Quinnovator RT @Tracy_Parish: To remain relevant. To lead by example.  To faciliate, moderate (maybe) #GuildChat https://t.co/8Wss2d3sqS
2:26 PM Quinnovator RT @jimbobtyer: A4) Because L&D has no choice.  #guildchat
2:26 PM billbollenbach @Learning_Dude kind of building the network mindset #guildchat
2:26 PM Tracy_Parish I don’t think it has no choice. I see it more as orgs needing to follow our lead instead. #GuildChat

2:26 PM Learning_Dude nail head < BAM! (Nice hit, James.) #guildchat https://t.co/XuHoBltVlR
2:26 PM AnadeliaFadeev RT @Learning_Dude: A4) L&D should be involved because learning is at the heart of everything we do. #guildchat
2:26 PM JD_Dillon A4) We must evolve, driving connection relates to existing capability/relationships/position within orgs #Guildchat https://t.co/ybAUV8xLKs
2:26 PM BenCpdx Amen! Email is where good ideas and intentions go to die. #GuildChat  https://t.co/NSac2zR81B
2:26 PM jimbobtyer RT @Quinnovator a4) because people who understand people and learning should be driving it… #guildchat (unless we go undercover!)
2:26 PM AlwaysBreaking A3) Challenge is now L&D has many, many more tools/place/resources to deal with. Where do we focus our attention? #guildchat
2:26 PM urbie RT @eLearningGuild: Q4. Why should L&D be involved in creating a connected organization? #GuildChat
2:26 PM RaftLearning A4) Because L&D will become dinosaurs very quickly! #GuildChat
2:26 PM Learning_Dude @billbollenbach Yes! #guildchat

2:26 PM inkling RT @Learning_Dude: A4) L&D should be involved because learning is at the heart of everything we do. #guildchat
2:27 PM chris_benz Agreed, but many in L&D take pride in being good at what they used to do, not what they now need to do. #GuildChat https://t.co/BUZKgtjLbu
2:27 PM Tracy_Parish Much of the time it comes down to preference rather than the tools at hand. #GuildChat

https://t.co/8c3FzsyTaQ

2:27 PM CoachRWZ A4) can represent a non biased intermediary for groups that are fighting for resources #guildchat
2:27 PM RaftLearning @technkl Or let me do it whenever I FEEL like getting up! #GuildChat
2:27 PM BenCpdx Yes, ideas are created and synthesized from without, not within, #GuildChat https://t.co/05qBcxWon5
2:27 PM Learning_Dude @chris_benz Oh. Ouch. I can feel offense being taken by so many at that comment. ;) #guildchat
2:27 PM Quinnovator @AlwaysBreaking I reckon we need to release control; Least Assistance Principle and (em)power to the learners #guildchat
2:27 PM GarrettMesser A4) to keep a seat at the table and to provide guidance, and delivery in ways to ease change #guildchat
2:27 PM jimbobtyer @Tracy_Parish yes, I was being a little flippant. But for most L&D I know, this is change or be done time. #GuildChat
2:27 PM RaftLearning @chris_benz True. That’s human nature. But if L&D isn’t on the cutting edge they are not doing their jobs. #GuildChat
2:27 PM MrMiNiKi A1) employees that are connected to ideas and practices outside the organisation #guildchat
2:28 PM urbie #guildchat A4 Zombies. L&D needs to fail sometimes. We can’t be right all the time can we? L&D are zombies if new stuff isn’t tried.
2:28 PM technkl RT @chris_benz: Agreed, but many in L&D take pride in being good at what they used to do, not what they now need to do. #GuildChat https://…
2:28 PM WinnerGirl4 RT @GarrettMesser: A4) to keep a seat at the table and to provide guidance, and delivery in ways to ease change #guildchat
2:28 PM Quinnovator a4) because the org needs it, and L&D can (and should) be driving it; path to a more strategic role! #guildchat
2:28 PM JD_Dillon A4) The evolution is inevitable and NOT driven by us (org dynamics, tech, culture, etc.). #Guildchat https://t.co/ybAUV8xLKs
2:28 PM CoachRWZ So are they good knowers or learners? #GuildChat  https://t.co/5ShB7ATJqO
2:28 PM Tracy_Parish Eeekkkk you ref “change management” #GuildChat https://t.co/975DIoB2Dx
2:28 PM Learning_Dude It’s easy to get mired down in tradition. The future of learning is harder to measure; have to convince L&D it’s worth doing. #guildchat
2:28 PM Quinnovator a4) future success is continual innovation, comes from communication/collaboration (e.g. Connected Org).  L&D can/should drive it #guildchat
2:28 PM urbie #guildchat A4 I understand that developing talent can be expensive. But do you want staff growing inside your org or outside? #shinyobject
2:29 PM CRobinsonKeys I think @Quinnovator is right. Curation in the age of information overload will be part of the adapting role of L&D #GuildChat

2:29 PM GarrettMesser @Tracy_Parish sorry, change management is hard to get away from #guildchat
2:30 PM AlwaysBreaking @Quinnovator @Tracy_Parish Not worried about control, but expectations that L&D has to use all the tools in addition daily work. #guildchat
2:30 PM Learning_Dude @chris_benz Oh, no. I’m not offended. My skin’s too thick. I completely agree with you. #guildchat
2:30 PM technkl A4 There’s a lot of info out there, L&D should’t be adding to it, should help make sense of it #guildchat
2:30 PM Tracy_Parish Could become a very key primary role?  In some places it already is. #GuildChat https://t.co/KaSs6rEok0
2:30 PM RaftLearning @CoachRWZ Well, they should be good learners, but many rest on their laurels and get stuck. #GuildChat
2:30 PM AjayPangarkar Late again, sorry :(  #guildchat
2:30 PM JD_Dillon @chris_benz @Learning_Dude It’s time to start offending some people who don’t want to support inevitable change #Guildchat
2:31 PM urbie @jimbobtyer Yes.. I do. I recently (yesterday) hung out my PD shingle. Hopefully the idea will have legs. #guildchat
2:31 PM Quinnovator @AlwaysBreaking @Tracy_Parish shift in work: less creation, more curation and facilitation #guildchat
2:31 PM Learning_Dude @JD_Dillon @chris_benz YES! Let’s do this. Should we dish out offense like playing cards, or… (J/K) #guildchat
2:31 PM sjgill RT @CRobinsonKeys: I think @Quinnovator is right. Curation in the age of information overload will be part of the adapting role of L&D #Gui…
2:31 PM CRobinsonKeys @technkl Yes, helping to organize, sort the relevant and bring it forward to those who need it. #guildchat
2:31 PM chris_benz Welcome, Ajay! #GuildChat https://t.co/h2dwALTR2k
2:31 PM RaftLearning @JD_Dillon @chris_benz @Learning_Dude Totally agree! #GuildChat
2:31 PM Quinnovator @urbie @jimbobtyer congrats and good luck! #guildchat
2:32 PM AjayPangarkar Thanks Chris #guildchat
2:32 PM Learning_Dude @RaftLearning @JD_Dillon @chris_benz I’m authoring discussion ? on embracing risk-taking and challenging the status quo. #guildchat
2:32 PM billbollenbach @CRobinsonKeys @Quinnovator is that in the context of “Quality not Quantity” ? #guildchat
2:32 PM eLearningGuild Q5. Are there organizational L&D practices that might become moot due to increased connectedness? Examples? #GuildChat
2:32 PM technkl RT @eLearningGuild: Q5. Are there organizational L&D practices that might become moot due to increased connectedness? Examples? #GuildChat
2:32 PM JD_Dillon @Learning_Dude @chris_benz Play or GET OUT! #Guildchat
2:32 PM AjayPangarkar a4) boy, I really can’t believe that this question had to be asked…#shameonLD #guildchat
2:32 PM RaftLearning @Learning_Dude @JD_Dillon @chris_benz I love challenging the status quo. I have to be careful at my job, but I still do it. #GuildChat
2:32 PM Learning_Dude A5) Ummm. Buckle up, for the following responses will take you for a ride. Here we go… #guildchat
2:33 PM urbie @quinnovator @jimbobtyer Thank you sir. You (and most everyone else I meet on twitter & #EdCamp) are inspire to push myself.. #guildchat
2:33 PM Quinnovator @billbollenbach @CRobinsonKeys yes, and just in coping! Develop learn-to-learn in org, can’t be responsible for all any more #guildchat
2:33 PM GarrettMesser A5) Please say documentation…. #guildchat
2:33 PM BenCpdx Right. And equally invite everyone to bring new ideas forward, too. #GuildChat https://t.co/nNIJWLa2g2
2:33 PM Quinnovator RT @eLearningGuild: Q5. Are there organizational L&D practices that might become moot due to increased connectedness? Examples? #GuildChat
2:33 PM MrMiNiKi A2) it’s just another layer of human and emotional interaction that some individuals will abhor #guildchat
2:33 PM urbie RT @eLearningGuild: Q5. Are there organizational L&D practices that might become moot due to increased connectedness? Examples? #GuildChat
2:33 PM Tracy_Parish RT @eLearningGuild: Q5. Are there organizational L&D practices that might become moot due to increased connectedness? Examples? #GuildChat
2:33 PM technkl A5 All of them? Is that an acceptable answer? #guildchat
2:33 PM Learning_Dude @RaftLearning @JD_Dillon @chris_benz *ahem* I also have to be careful, but when you have a breakthrough it’s worth the risk. #guildchat
2:33 PM jimbobtyer A5) Centralization, Ivory-Tower mindset, check box training, supporting competencies (over performance) … lots   #guildchat
2:33 PM JD_Dillon A5) Check-in-box exercises to drive training hours or CYA #Guildchat  https://t.co/OBvESq1nER
2:33 PM Learning_Dude @technkl Haha! Seriously. #guildchat
2:33 PM chris_benz A5) MOST L&D practices might become moot. L&D can no longer continue as the gatekeepers of knowledge. #GuildChat https://t.co/JvXrp5SBGe
2:34 PM RaftLearning A6) Storage of and access to resources becomes global. Old ways of tracking training and support have to change. #GuildChat
2:34 PM Learning_Dude A5) Elephant in the room: more connectedness means there’s probably less need for facilitators. Just saying… #guildchat
2:34 PM JD_Dillon A5) Less content creation, especially in curated knowledge and performance support – driven by users #Guildchat https://t.co/OBvESq1nER
2:34 PM AjayPangarkar a5) Exactly! RT @technkl: A5 All of them? Is that an acceptable answer? #guildchat
2:34 PM Quinnovator a5) ‘spray and pray’, ‘show up and throw up’, and ‘text and next’ #guildchat #hopefully
2:34 PM jimbobtyer RT @chris_benz: A5) MOST L&D practices might become moot. L&D can no longer continue as the gatekeepers of knowledge. #GuildChat https://t.…
2:34 PM urbie #guildchat A5 I don’t believe any L&D practices will go the way of the dodo. Social augments rather than replaces. Processes r tried/true..
2:34 PM JonCampbell66 RT @chris_benz: A5) MOST L&D practices might become moot. L&D can no longer continue as the gatekeepers of knowledge. #GuildChat https://t.…
2:34 PM Learning_Dude Also, empowering associates to curate and contribute minimizes the need for ID and eD. #guildchat
2:34 PM technkl A5 order taking has always been moot, connectedness won’t change that I guess #guildchat
2:34 PM AnadeliaFadeev A5. Paper!! I’m surprised companies still use binders and print guides. Content needs to be dynamic, not static #GuildChat @eLearningGuild
2:34 PM AjayPangarkar a5) LD should become irrelevant as it is must be part of the fabric of the org, not an after-thought #guildchat
2:34 PM WinnerGirl4 RT @Quinnovator: a5) ‘spray and pray’, ‘show up and throw up’, and ‘text and next’ #guildchat #hopefully
2:34 PM Quinnovator @Learning_Dude not sure I agree; don’t assume good ‘connection’ skills. Once culture of learning established, hopefully yes #guildchat
2:34 PM JD_Dillon A5) Need driven by users rather than management – can’t ignore/forget them when they have a LOUD voice #Guildchat https://t.co/OBvESq1nER
2:34 PM CRobinsonKeys @billbollenbach @Quinnovator Yes Bill separating the noise from the relevant content to present in a fashion organization can use #guildchat
2:34 PM RaftLearning @Learning_Dude I’m cautiously worming my way through. I have a couple of champions on my side and that will help. #GuildChat
2:35 PM CoachRWZ A5) content heavy (google it). need move towards skills based, collaboration, creativity, communication, insight & empathy  #guildchat
2:35 PM urbie #guildchat A5 Example: a while back @JaneBozarth tweeted about #DesignThinking. So I did a #mooc. It’s part of my craft (A-DT-DIE).. works.
2:35 PM AjayPangarkar a5) ask the market leading orgs in the world, they don’t talk abt LD as a separate activity #guildchat
2:35 PM Quinnovator a5) developing courses on demand, not measuring biz impact, using courses as the only tool, ignoring performance support #guildchat
2:35 PM Learning_Dude @Quinnovator Touche. Good point. #guildchat
2:36 PM urbie #guildchat A5 A better question (maybe the next one?) would be what practices will L&D have to add to deal with connect-ed-ness?
2:36 PM RaftLearning @Tracy_Parish Well, I work for an association management company, so that is a loaded question. #GuildChat
2:36 PM BenCpdx A5) Let go of the idea of delivering “received wisdom” and “institutional knowledge.” Instead, recognize it’s a living thing. #GuildChat
2:36 PM MrMiNiKi A4) We’re not creating it. We’re joining it. #guildchat
2:36 PM jimbobtyer A5) This means L&D needs to change expectations of leadership, not just change internally.  #guildchat
2:36 PM AjayPangarkar a5) LD needs to get their heads out of the sand and act like a real business activity first #guildchat
2:36 PM technkl @AjayPangarkar some orgs don’t see L&D as a seperate dept as should be, it’s part of the work #guildchat
2:36 PM AlwaysBreaking @Quinnovator @Learning_Dude And not everyone has time to contribute. I know people who barely have time to eat. #guildchat
2:36 PM Learning_Dude I’m just going to sit back and RT @quinnovator for Q5. This guy’s on a roll! #guildchat https://t.co/Ku2mQzZV2s
2:36 PM AjayPangarkar @technkl @AjayPangarkar What I said, I believe #guildchat
2:36 PM urbie #guildchat A5a L&D would need to create a process for managing the plethora of ideas for stuff that will burst forth like a 2″ fire hose..
2:36 PM RaftLearning @Learning_Dude I disagree. There has to be guidance, otherwise it’s a total free-for-all and all kinds of crap will hit the fan. #GuildChat
2:37 PM Learning_Dude @AlwaysBreaking @Quinnovator Duh. That’s why we have Pop Tarts, right? #guildchat
2:37 PM technkl @AjayPangarkar but it’s not just talk about them as not seperate, goes further than that into not being seperate #guildchat
2:37 PM RaftLearning @JD_Dillon Everybody keep saying this, but SOMEONE has to create content… #GuildChat
2:37 PM Learning_Dude @RaftLearning Yeah, you and @Quinnovator. Perhaps I should reframe my thinking. :) #guildchat
2:37 PM Quinnovator @AlwaysBreaking @Learning_Dude reckon that’s a cultural flaw; time for reflection is a key part of a learning culture #guildchat
2:37 PM AjayPangarkar @technkl @AjayPangarkar Still agree…it is what I do with them… :)  #guildchat
2:38 PM jimbobtyer @Learning_Dude @AlwaysBreaking @Quinnovator good call – that attitude helps fund my work ;) #guildchat
2:38 PM urbie #guildchat A5a L&D should take a really close look at the #EdCamp PD model. Think of the talent that exists in-house. It’s huge I’d wager.
2:38 PM JD_Dillon @RaftLearning Enable users to share/create – background players like us can assist in curation, drive addition creation #Guildchat
2:38 PM Learning_Dude @Quinnovator @AlwaysBreaking Agreed, but that time is more often than not considered “wasted.” Reflect =/ productivity. #guildchat
2:38 PM CoachRWZ RT @Quinnovator: @AlwaysBreaking @Learning_Dude reckon that’s a cultural flaw; time for reflection is a key part of a learning culture #gui…
2:38 PM RaftLearning @Learning_Dude But you still have to have knowledgeable people driving that bus. Think monkeys running the zoo. #GuildChat
2:38 PM AjayPangarkar a5) @technkl – Always work with the biz leadership before talking/working with LD, #headsinthesand  #guildchat
2:38 PM XpanInteractive RT @eLearningGuild: Q5. Are there organizational L&D practices that might become moot due to increased connectedness? Examples? #GuildChat
2:39 PM technkl @AjayPangarkar of course you agree :-) just some L&D ppl don’t see distinction between working w/ biz and being in biz role #guildchat
2:39 PM RaftLearning @AnadeliaFadeev @eLearningGuild But you can’t doodle on an iPad screen…#GuildChat
2:39 PM Learning_Dude @RaftLearning Did you just call all learners monkeys? ;) #guildchat
2:39 PM jimbobtyer Interesting talk about the role of L&D in curation…Comms might get there before us in many orgs.  #guildchat
2:39 PM Quinnovator @Learning_Dude @AlwaysBreaking that’s what drives me nuts. Reflection + productivity > productivity, but people don’t see it #guildchat
2:39 PM eLearningGuild Q6. As organizations become more connected how does this change current roles? What new roles form? Which may disappear? #GuildChat
2:39 PM urbie #guildchat Interesting in throwing an in-house #EdCamp-like PD experience? Read https://t.co/OFiUs62mh1
2:39 PM technkl @AjayPangarkar but should be step further. Not just talking to them first, they should be one in same leaders #guildchat
2:39 PM jimbobtyer RT @eLearningGuild: Q6. As organizations become more connected how does this change current roles? What new roles form? Which may disappear…
2:39 PM technkl RT @eLearningGuild: Q6. As organizations become more connected how does this change current roles? What new roles form? Which may disappear…
2:39 PM Learning_Dude @RaftLearning @AnadeliaFadeev @eLearningGuild Wait a minute. Yes you can. Check out @FiftyThree’s Paper app. :) It’s delicious. #guildchat
2:39 PM Quinnovator RT @eLearningGuild: Q6. As organizations become more connected how does this change current roles? What new roles form? Which may disappear…
2:40 PM RaftLearning @Learning_Dude Ummm, maybe… LOL #GuildChat
2:40 PM CoachRWZ It’s about framing the reflection so it can be used for improvement. Give it value. #Guildchat  https://t.co/PM8v5n1EYI
2:40 PM urbie RT @eLearningGuild: Q6. As organizations become more connected how does this change current roles? What new roles form? Which may disappear…
2:40 PM RaftLearning @BenCpdx YES #GuildChat
2:40 PM JaneBozarth RT @RaftLearning: @JD_Dillon Everybody keep saying this, but SOMEONE has to create content… #GuildChat
2:40 PM billbollenbach @jimbobtyer @Learning_Dude  @Quinnovator there is a level of efficiency in someone facilitating-no way all can see all #guildchat
2:40 PM Learning_Dude @CoachRWZ Maybe we can connect outside of here. I’m working on a project that requires convincing leaders of this. #guildchat
2:40 PM Quinnovator a6) I argue Instructional Designers -> Performance Consultants, Trainers -> Learning Facilitators #guildchat
2:40 PM RaftLearning @AjayPangarkar THANK YOU!!! That goes for all industries, too. I’m pushing for a marketing plan for our online content. #GuildChat
2:40 PM JD_Dillon A6) Less alignment to team, more to function; people become flexible in role, task to talent #Guildchat https://t.co/CK0nz52yaI
2:41 PM inkling RT @BenCpdx: A5) Let go of the idea of delivering “received wisdom” and “institutional knowledge.” Instead, recognize it’s a living thing. …
2:41 PM jimbobtyer RT @JD_Dillon: A6) Less alignment to team, more to function; people become flexible in role, task to talent #Guildchat https://t.co/CK0nz52…
2:41 PM JaneBozarth @RaftLearning I’d guess maybe 10% are content creators. As in, original content. #guildchat
2:41 PM technkl A6 developers dissapear, no new content, make available the content from the business and work w/ them to present it best #guildchat
2:41 PM JD_Dillon A6) Less specialization, more need for cross-functional talent #Guildchat https://t.co/CK0nz52yaI
2:41 PM GarrettMesser A6) less content creation more curation #guildchat
2:41 PM urbie #guildchat A6 I really believe no new roles will be added or some disappear. Think PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) will be needed.
2:41 PM CoachRWZ So am I. Let’s do it! #guildchat https://t.co/wPEaVobSqb
2:42 PM AjayPangarkar @technkl @AjayPangarkar LD rarely gets the reality, sadly. They are making themselves irrelevant, justifiably #guildchat
2:42 PM urbie #guildchat A6 Imagine for a moment all the new ideas (on sticky notes, napkins) that will come sailing in your cubicle entrance?
2:42 PM Learning_Dude A6) The role of community mgr, in some form or fashion, is liable to surface. #guildchat
2:42 PM RaftLearning @Learning_Dude @FiftyThree LOVE Paper/Pencil. Don’t have it, but I’m dying to get an iPad so I can actually use it regularly. #GuildChat
2:42 PM AlwaysBreaking @Quinnovator @Learning_Dude You have push for the ideal learning org, but be aware it can’t 100%  #guildchat
2:42 PM Learning_Dude @RaftLearning @FiftyThree I lost my iPad mini. If you can find you can have it. ;)  #guildchat
2:42 PM urbie #guildchat A6 L&D staff will need to be issue safety glasses, yellow (Bob the Builder-like) safety helmets & snowshoes.
2:42 PM technkl @Learning_Dude it has, and should, facilitating discussion and finding the good uses is so important #guildchat
2:42 PM jimbobtyer A6) I agree with all so far. Might be more with how you do a role too – e.g. more lean startup methods to support innovation etc. #guildchat
2:42 PM AjayPangarkar @RaftLearning @AjayPangarkar You’re welcome :) #guildchat
2:42 PM Quinnovator @JD_Dillon or maybe: more cross-functional teams and less solo work?  See need for some specialization #guildchat

2:44 PM JD_Dillon @Quinnovator The easiest way to become irrelevant in a modern org is often to specialize … Usually … #Guildchat
