Why Organizations Don't Learn

Jay Cross, Internet Time Blog, Nov 05, 2015
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Jay Cross looks at an article entitled Why Organizations Don’t Learn in the November Harvard Business Review and suggests that "the resemblance of their suggestions and the content of Real Learning is uncanny." The difference, though, is that "everything recommended by HBR deals with the supply side. Real Learning looks at the world through the demand side. Real Learning appeals to people with an intrinsic motivation to learn — in order to meet their personal goals. Intrinsic motivation outguns extrinsic motivation because ultimately, individuals learn what they want to learn." And maybe that's what HBR does - taking good concepts and reforming them to become a part of top-down organizational strategy.
