Michele, thanks for taking the discussion further on this. These are great points you make, hopefully others will add others. It certainly requires a different approach/mindset to implementation, doesn't it.

Thanks, Jane--this is definitely something that's a work in progress and I'd love to hear from others on what does/doesn't work--including how to get management to take a more supportive role, rather than getting into the top-down mode of thinking! Glad you got the conversation started!

Hi thanks for the post, it makes a lot of sense. I've also seen that the speed is reduced but going to several approval cycles. Give some room to experiment! (and maybe make some agreement on maximum amount of time to invest)

Good points, Joitske, especially about leaving room for experimentation. I would go so far as to say that organizations should encourage that experimentation!

This topic is near and dear to my heart. I like the model of Social Learning in the Workplace because it focuses the use of social media on people looking to learn specific tasks to help them succeed as employees, in their careers, at their jobs.

Self-interest is a great motivator and if people can be more successful, and feature their success in their learning pursuits, organizations see the business results.

Great stuff...

Let me know if I can help in any way.
