For one thing they typically rely on extrinsic motivations (rewards—do this and youll get that) which Im learning from Alfie Kohn is an intrinsic motivator killer (Ive got to share some of the experiments Alfie talks about in a future post).

    The US Army Lessons Learned system has evolved over 40 years to become a model lesson learned system.

    [Learning, Practice] Managing in Complexity
    How can you be less directive and enable distributed work, and therefore distributed (and undirected) learning? Taylor’s Principles of Scientific Management (1911) inform many of our current practices but there are other models and frameworks available. This is not a training problem but rather a management issue.

    [Learning, Practice] Emergent practices need practice
    Learning as we probe the problem, we gain insight and our practices are emergent (emerging from our interaction with the changing environment and the problem). Training looks backwards, at what worked in the past (good & best practices), and creates a controlled environment to develop knowledge and skills.

    [Learning, Practice] Resetting learning and work
    From early on we are told to look to authority and direction in learning and work. Today, more of our learning is on the job so that formal training is an increasingly smaller percentage of what we need to get things done. Like artists, we need to see and learn for ourselves. The fifth lesson I teach is intellectual dependency.

    Let’s start with formal learning, or training. Remember, our goals are retention over time until the learning is needed, and transfer to all appropriate situations, not just ones that are seen in the learning experience. Consequently, the ‘massed practice’ of the learning *event* is a broken model!
