If you work in Learning and Development for a large organisation, there’s a good chance that at some point you’ve spent years putting a programme together, only to find that by the time it launches the original stakeholders have left.
On this week’s podcast, Ross D and Owen are joined by Steph Clarke to ask if this approach is overcomplicating learning – or oversimplifying it.
You can get the latest episode of the podcast using one of the following links.
Steph isn’t on Twitter, but you can find her at stephclarke.com.
Owen’s WILTW, on what constitutes ‘well read’, came from The Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/may/12/book-clinic-what-constitutes-well-read
The book Steph recommended, New Power: How It’s Changing The 21st Century – And Why You Need To Know by Jeremy Heimans, is available at Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/New-Power-Changing-21st-Century-ebook/dp/B076T8MJ83
And the book that Ross recommended was The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right by Atul Gawande, available at: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Checklist-Manifesto-Things-Right-Gawande/dp/1846683149
Incidentally, Atul Gawande was recently appointed CEO of a new healthcare venture from Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan Chase. That story was covered by GeekWire here: https://www.geekwire.com/2018/atul-gawande-starts-first-day-ceo-amazon-berkshire-hathaway-jpmorgan-health-venture/
And if Ross G were here, he’d point out that Gawande also recently featured on the Freakonomics podcast, and is well worth a listen: http://freakonomics.com/podcast/atul-gawande/
