The rate of change has changed! A growing popular term to describe our world is VUCA - Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous.

Your organization’s performance is dependent upon learning. Learning, like milk, has a shelf life. Your learning offerings and system requires flexibility and adaptability to be effective in the dynamic business market. Also, you should offer “just enough," as a learner in a VUCA environment is highly impatient and intolerant of too many options.

IBM has adjusted to the VUCA world, and realized that they are selling knowledge/innovation. IBM’s employees receive 30 million hours of education/year, at a cost of $574 million annually. GoogleEDU is the program that implements continuing education as part of the Google culture. They provide targeted development based on work function, and making it specific and actionable.

Is your learning organization equipped for VUCA?
