Doug Lynch of UPenn and discussed issues that converged economics and learning.
Some quotes from his fascinating talk:
“You have an economic and moral mandate to demonstrate the impact of training on your organization.”
To do that is a matter of “collecting evidence that is both material and competient.”
“Learning is the best strategy to get us out of whatever problems we are in.”
His five keys to being a learning executive:
a) Business Accumen;
b) able to apply techninogy logically;
c) consummate consumer of evidence;
d) experiential learner; and
e) a background in learning
In an “actor studio” section he recommended a book to read related to our current economic situation called “Short History of Financial Euphoria” by John Kenneth Galbraith.
Thanks to Jennifer of ERSL and Trina P. of Frederick County for using great research and finding the name of the book.
