Knowledge, Learning, Community

Good article about an important trend. "We, in L&D, produce too much content. Again, we’re trapped in our training or learning paradigm where instructional content is what we do, rather than thinking about the clients trying to use us as a means to an end of performance." Now this isn't just about creating job aids (though if you could solve a problem with a job aid, why on earth would you build and offer a whole course?). Anyhow, this article is the lead-in to an interview David James with Guy Wallace, a pioneer of performance-focused learning and development, though it doesn't show up yet on the podcast page.
