Good summary by Charles Jennings of the three major elements of workplace learning: adding, embedding and extracting. As Jennimngs says, "When faced with the opportunities to help with workplace learning, many HR, talent development, and learning professionals react by simply adding learning to the workflow." But while this has its place, the more important activirties are the other two. First, "embedding learning in work offers a wider range of opportunities for on-going development as part of the workflow," he writes. But the most powerful is extraction (this is what I do when I create this newsletter). "Learning is not only embedded in the workflow, but new learning is continually extracted from experiences and exchanges with colleagues, customers and the entire value chain."
