The increasing complexity of the world in which we live and work requires us to be more sophisticated in how we learn. We must be better prepared to learn on demand, with minimum disruption to our workflow and productivity. With this goal in mind, it is increasingly critical that the resources we put in place to help us learn—and ultimately perform—be as direct, effective, and instantly available as possible.

To accomplish this, we must move away from individual, siloed, “one-off” solutions to an ecosystem comprised of multi-faceted learning and performance options that enhance the environments in which we work and learn.

This complimentary white paper, by Marc J. Rosenberg and Steve Foreman, explores learning and performance ecosystems from conceptual, technological, cultural, and managerial perspectives, and looks into how this new framework will dramatically impact the ways in which people learn and work. It lays a foundation for further discussion, experimentation, and innovation into new ways to leverage all that we know about learning to improve workforce performance.
