Training from Outside the Room (Marian Willeke, Scott Marsee)

Training is an important aspect of the learning process. We have Sharon Bowman's brilliant work in "Training from the Back of the Room" helping us be better … in a box. A room. A single space of time.
However, this is not sufficient to achieve your potential as either individuals or organisations. The best organisations have embraced a culture of continuous learning. It's outside the room. Learning is a mindset evident in everyday behaviours and drives the decisions people make. These companies have extended the agile concepts of continuous integration, automation, and deep customer focus beyond their software development work and into their coaching and L&D organisations' mindset.
So how do we get our companies to that point? Learning is the single largest constraint to us to achieving the agility we seek, yet learning too often remains constrained by the "day of training" mindset. This workshop introduces and helps you explore learning strategies to help you make the science of learning a part of your organisational strategy. Together, we will practice designing systemic, culturally embedded learning using topics relevant to your organisation.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Discover that long-term competitiveness requires a culture of continuous learning.
  • Develop a continuous learning mindset as a part of your organisational strategy.
  • Explore the behaviours and habits that instil learning into your culture.
  • Design learning based on Agile practices and education science to be incremental in short focused bursts that involve sharing and experimentation.

Director, Adaptive Learning
My passion is centered around ensuring effective learning experiences that improve people's lives. Developing a learning mindset is my ultimate goal whether working with academic programs or corporate training; formal or informal learning practices. It is my belief that our potential for agility is limited only by our capacity for learning.
