Content-type: text/html ~ Stephen's Web ~ Informal Learning For Managers

Stephen Downes

Knowledge, Learning, Community
The money quote is this: "Managers spend up to two hours a day searching for information, and more than 50 percent of the information they obtain has no value to them... IDC estimates that an enterprise employing 1,000 knowledge workers wastes at least $2.5 to $3.5 million per year searching for nonexistent information..." Of course, I wouldn't simply equate informal learning to the finding of information, and neither does this article, but you can see how the hook can capture managers' attentions. The article features a neural-like diagram with tiny (almost incomprehensible) print contrasting formal and informal learning. It's interesting to look at, but I wouldn't try putting it on a slide.
