    We can develop a shared vision in our communities of practice. Finding communities of practice, where we can safely test alternative ways of thinking and doing, then becomes a priority. Professionals without communities to help them continuously refine their practice are at a real loss in this network era. While the concept of diversity is simple to understand, the practices to weave a diverse knowledge network can be difficult to make into habits.

What does matter is that there are two problems in their standard that indicate we still haven’t overcome some pernicious problems. And we need to!

    You need very specific practice and/or useful feedback to develop it. If you want to develop expertise as an individual, you need to understand how to practice. Deliberate practice, as Ericsson details , is the key. You need to practice at the limits of your ability, and consciously learn from the outcomes. Yes, I’m a vested interest, but I believe these things are true on principle and should be in practice. Expertise is an elusive thing.

    [Practice] connecting work, learning, and life
    In our practice we have seen many applications of the learning paradigm in 70:20:10, which is not the intention. Therefore it is not just what happens in our work teams, or even our professional communities of practice, but all of our experiences, hardships, and social connections that makes us who we are. The 70:20:10 reference model states that, in general, what we learn at work comes 70% from experience, 20% from exposure to new work, and 10% from formal education.
