Learning and Development
There is no doubt education is next in line, in particular, higher education and professional development. The EdTech movement is here and is forcing incumbents and players in the ecosystem to react and adapt. And corporate training is affected by this shift.
Let’s explore how three key trends are affecting corporate training today:
The best thing that can happen to people at work is to experience flow.
Flow at work happens when you are completely involved in what you are doing.
When you’re in a state of flow, you know what needs to be done and how well you are doing. You have the skills and tools to get the job done and you are able to thoroughly focus. Needless to say, flow results in higher employee engagement and productivity.
Paul Matthews discusses the biggest waste in the training industry as the way we spend the training budget, instead of investing it in people. He continues to look at why people ignore training, or lack thereof, and pass blame to avoid responsibility. The importance of seeing an ROI on learning and development is integral to the bottom line and organisations need to look at how to implement training as a programme, not an event.
In part 3 of the series, Paul Matthews discusses informal learning, which describes any learning that is not scheduled, planned or mandated. He looks at the importance of informal learning, by focusing on its impact on health and safety, and how it can be harnessed by learning and development (L&D) functions to ensure that employees are doing the right things with the right support. Paul considers how informal learning is integral to keeping an organisation running and provides some examples of how L&D functions can leverage informal learning to their advantage.

In this case, the market forces are the manager and teams that live day to day in your business; they are the consumer.
