Cultivating the right learning eco-system

When you think about it, a learning function or department is really like an eco-system which not only exists but survives within a broader organisational environment.  The bits and pieces of this broader environment are usually centred on profit, speed to market, and always reducing and avoiding costs. 

The organisation’s business results are able to be measured and in many cases actually “seen”.  This comes about because an investment has been made in the first place and the business environment kicks into gear to get a return on the investment and a successful outcome. That is how business works.  But, positioned within its micro-eco-system, the same is not always the case for the learning function. 

Learning is not always an “easily seen” link with business outcomes.  As such, learning and particularly the function that supports it is often seen as a cost, rather than as an investment.  The result is that the attention paid to learning, and its potential value, is often lost.
