Does your organization support a specific learning strategy? Do you hold true to a personal one?

Learning Strategy like any strategy can be a big undertaking and it’s formation can look quite different depending on the size of the effort. Today there is debate about the flexibility or even the necessity of strategy in the face of rapidly changing ideas, work forces and technology.
