A culture of learning and continuous improvement is central to an agile mindset. Yet, when it comes to transferring knowledge, skills and behaviors for new solutions to employees, partners and customers, organizations often address the needs after development is complete. High-performing organizations, in contrast, are not “developing training using agile methods” after delivery. They are reconsidering what enterprise training means and recasting it in the light of “enablement.” Their focus is on more transparently enabling the acquisition and adoption of desired knowledge, skills and behaviors.
“Dark Learning” is an agile approach to enterprise learning or--more accurately--enterprise enablement. It provides a unified view of key disruptions taking place in the field of enterprise learning--micro-learning, social, mobile, personalization, contextualization, video, and analytics-driven decision-making--as a strategy for increasing enterprise agility towards a continuous delivery model.
This session introduces the current state of enterprise learning, provides an overview of the disruptions taking place in the field of enterprise learning and introduces Dark Learning as a shift in mindset that enables high-performers to get to market more quickly, reduce costs associated with traditional learning and increase the quality of overall solutions delivered by the enterprise.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Recognize ways in which traditional learning approaches are out of alignment with Agile principles and approaches, and hinder enterprise agility as a result.
  • Describe how disruptors in the field of enterprise learning are a reflection Agile, Lean, Continuous Delivery, DevOps and other shifts in software development
  • Identify the key "brain shifts" of Dark Learning and how they can help improve enterprise agility.
  • Identify practical actions that you can take to more transparently transfer knowledge, skills and behaviors to colleagues, partners and customers.
