Reading and Resources

Hi everyone, and welcome to the unit on learning and development in today’s workplace. I would for like you to think about your first few days at any new job you might have had. Did you, as is usually the case,spend much of that time in training? One of the first things most organizations train new folks on is

organizational culture, including strategies to provide these new employees with a better understanding of what the company is about and the role they will play.

It is also quite likely that these first few hours or days of training were, well, less than exhilarating. You can admit it; we are all professionals here. Part of the reason for this may be that the training was broad based and did not address the information you needed to understand about your own area of

responsibility and where you fit within your work group or department. So I ask—can training work at both an organizational and individual level at the same time? Sure it can!

One way to be sure it does work is by using different organizational learning techniques. In his book The Fifth Discipline, Peter Senge discusses five disciplines that interface and support one another in order to create an environment where learning can occur. He says that systems thinking, mental models, personal

mastery, team learning, and a shared vision can be adopted by an organization to create a better learning climate. This unit introduces you to the different kinds of organizational learning. You will be exposed to competency-based models, case-based decision-making, and system thinking to provide a variety of

learning techniques for all employees.

Your reading assignments are composed of cutting-edge information about learning and development and competency models in today’s workplace. You will also review global issues in learning and development as well as the development of HR competencies for the future.
