Learning Organizations and Projects

PREMIUM webinar

In today's world the role of "Learning" in education has acquired great value and has become preferred mode as compared to "Teaching”. This emphasis on learning and its growth has been due to the preponderance of digital information and easy access to it. Technology has been enabler in this respect. However, the change in organizations to adapt to the new situation has not been as quick because of traditional work styles or culture .One can argue, that on this front the slower rate of change is understandable because soft skills take longer time to acquire and adapt. But with it comes the problem of meeting the challenges of changes in technology and information overload which happen here and now and in a VUCA* environment. The current pandemic situation has only exacerbated the situation by advancing a work culture and lifestyle which was possibly expected only in the future. In context of the above situation, the concept of the "Learning Organization" as enunciated in the 1990s by Peter Senge and others has some relevance. We can investigate it in relation to projects and project management by asking two questions. 1. How can we effectively manage projects in a Learning Organization? 2. What benefits can Project Managers obtain by using the concepts of Learning Organizations in their projects?

Change Intelligently® Lead Yourself and Your Team through the A.R.C.s of Change and Crisis

As our gut-wrenching experience with COVID-19 demonstrates and neuroscience validates, unexpected, unwanted, and undeserved change can plunge us into fear/threat mode, causing the good stuff that feeds our brain (oxygen, glucose) to rush past our necks so we can fight/flight/flee, robbing us of the cognitive capacity to think clearly and creatively. During the stress of change, when our IQ inevitably goes down, building our CQ® (Change Intelligence®), is like putting our own oxygen mask on first. We remember to breath, separate our knee-jerk, fear-based reaction from a more mindful response, and remember that we have options – and the more options we have, the more power we have.
