Knowledge, Learning, Community

People planning workplace development programs should take a version of this chart and make it their roadmap for the next five or ten years. It basically describes the transition from a dependence on formal learning to a deployment of informal learning, and it also maps the sift from centralized control to decentralized control. Jane Hart writes, "organizations already operating in Stage 5 understand that although formal training will continue to have a part to play in workplace learning,  it is more important in today’s fast-moving workplace to support the continuous learning and performance improvement of teams and individuals. This is what will really make the difference to how the organisation as a whole learns, grows and thrives."
