7 actions imperatives of learning strategy

Reda SadkiLearning strategy

The learning strategy recasts the evidence-based seven dimensions of learning culture (used to measure learning culture and performance) as action imperatives. In order to improve performance through learning, the organization needs to take specific action to:

  1. Create continuous learning opportunities
  2. Promote inquiry and dialogue
  3. Encourage collaboration and team learning
  4. Empower people toward a collective vision
  5. Connect the organization to its environment
  6. Establish systems to capture and share learning
  7. Provide strategic leadership for learning

For each action imperative, analysis is grounded in the narrative of individual learning practices reconciled with best practice drawn from the vast research corpus on learning culture and performance. Patterns emerging at the juncture between narrative and evidence may then be formulated as general and specific recommendations, while carefully considering feasibility and risk in the organizational context and environment.
