Learners First. An Agile Approach to Learning
“Learners First. An Agile Approach to Learning”
But is it that easy?
Trainings, seminars, workshops – they all give us the curriculum. But is this also the knowledge that you really need as an employee at this very moment, that builds on your existing prior know-how and that you can then apply in practice?
Many companies realize that the need for learning in a volatile world cannot be covered with classic standard training courses and development talks. It’s time for a new way of learning.
Dr Vera Baum and Dr Manuel Illi have now presented a book on this hot subject. They give scientifically sound answers and practical tips for the concrete implementation of an agile learning approach. They show how learning processes in the business environment can be made more efficient, needs-based and sustainable with the help of learning coaching and agile methods, and how a self-directed learning culture can be successfully established.
A book with agile content should also be written in an agile manner.
In our case this means:
the book has many authors and lives from the exchange – with you too!
We would be very happy to receive your feedback, suggestions and inquiries – let’s talk!
Perhaps you are also looking for a sparring partner or would like some input on agile learning.
Then simply write us an email.
