Training Industry Magazine - May/June 2021 - 29

In 2020, unprecedented change
affected us all. That " change " came in
the form of the COVID-19 pandemic,
where businesses, governments and
learning institutions shut down, and both
our work and personal lives changed in
dramatic ways.
Amid such change, learning organizations
began to retool. It is tempting to think
of this retooling as temporary - simply
bridging the gap until we can get back
to business as usual. But the effects of
the pandemic will persist for years to
come. More importantly, this view fails to
see a critical opportunity - the chance
to accelerate a continuous learning and
development (L&D) culture and take risks.
Success and overcoming challenges will
become a springboard toward growth
and innovation. So, how should we
move forward?

The Value of
Continuous Learning
A continuous learning and development
culture includes dynamic, flexible,
relevant,
engaging
and
readily
accessible learning. It empowers
learners and strengthens their ability to
apply their knowledge.
The appropriate delivery format is key
to an engaging and effective learning
experience. The right mix of learning
interventions and interactions is
essential because it encourages thought
leadership and fosters innovation.

The COVID-19
pandemic is merely the
current disruptor in a
constantly changing world.
To become " disruptionready, " organizations must
create a continuous learning
and development culture.

Impactful continuous learning and
development transforms businesses.
Opportunities to reinvent and deliver
come with opportunities to learn.
Organizations that place a high value
on learning are better able to reinvent
and innovate, and organizations that
innovate have a competitive advantage.
An environment of continuous learning
will maximize learning experiences,
meaning learning is effective despite
physical restrictions:
*	 Learning is available at the moment
the learner needs it. This significantly
reduces the gap between learning
and its application. (See Figure 1.)
*	 2020 proved there is tremendous
potential in hybrid learning. Both
virtual and in-person classrooms allow

Figure 1.

The closer learning is available to the moment of need, the more likely the knowledge
gained is applied, learning strengthened, and an organizational benefit gained.
