Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is chapter 1 of a longer work (you'll have to pay for subsequent chapters, and they're not written yet) and a good introduction to the topic of modern workplace learning. The linchpin is the new framework (presented in a frustratingly small diagram; a big version would help tired old eyes like mine) where "everyone is responsible for their own continuous improvement, learning and development." In particular, Hart envisions a new role, "Modern Learning Advisors," who "enable and support learning by (a) helping individuals build modern learning skills, organize & manage their own self-development, and (b) helping managers and their teams get the most out of daily work experiences."
