The Great Reset - Why we need to rethink organisational learning: Nigel Paine will explain why he thinks organisational learning needs rethinking and discuss ideas for improving learning culture, at Learning Technologies 2024 this April in London.

Organisational L&D needs to go beyond providing individual learning at scale. This session explores what it means when you take that seriously and do it at scale. It emphasises the importance of a collaborative approach to learning and covers strategies for fostering a culture that is open to innovation and learning from mistakes. It’s the way of future L&D – are you curious, agile and brave enough to make the change?

This transformative talk, inspired by Nigel Paine's new book on organisational learning, challenges conventional wisdom around L&D. It emphasizes that no single individual can determine an organization's path to success; instead, a collective, connected approach to learning is essential. Drawing on his extensive research, writing and wide experience, including a role as CLO of the BBC, Nigel will explore how we can – and must – revolutionise learning and development in organisations.

Learning Technologies Conference Chair, Donald H Taylor, said: “We'll delve into strategies for creating a culture open to new ideas, where mistakes are seen as learning opportunities, and open discussions drive innovation. The session is a call to action for L&D professionals to adopt a mindset of curiosity, encouraging exploration and intelligent decision-making based on a wealth of information. Be part of this pivotal conversation to reshape your organisation’s learning landscape by connecting firmly with your organization’s business strategy.” 

Talking points/takeaways:

  • Building connections for organisational intelligence
  • Creating a culture open to external ideas
  • Embracing mistakes as learning opportunities
  • Fostering a coaching culture in the workplace
  • Curiosity-driven exploration and decision-making

The Great Reset - Why we need to rethink organisational learning takes place on day one, 17 April at 11:15.
