Editor’s note: The CEO of Hootsuite, a social media management tool, says that in 2016 organisations will use their employees more to amplify their work – the technical term seems to be ’employee social advocacy’. Some interesting and realistic trends here.
Editor’s note: This concluding line sums up the thrust of this article: “It is high time to see ingenuity, craftsmanship, and connectivity as the critical differentiators, and move toward a future where we embrace and usher forward human-centered work.”
Editor’s note: John Seely Nbrown says that unlearning is an important part of learning. I like this line ‘While focusing on learning is fine, another real challenge is unlearning. We know that in this age of exponential change, global influences and zigzag careers, the ability to unlearn in order to learn anew, and re-frame in order to see differently is paramount.’
Editor’s note: Interesting that two of the seven facets of the future employee as outlined in this article are ‘Shifting from a knowledge to a learning worker’ and ‘Teaches and leans at will’. Begs the question: ‘What’s the future role of L&D if these are our future workers?”
Editor’s note: This is a really interesting presentation from author and analyst Brian Solis. Does what it says on the tin and as such provides useful context for tech developments in the learning sector. Thanks to Jane Hart for sharing.
