From around the Web

The secret to lifelong success is lifelong learning Michael Simmons, World Economic Forum, 16 January 2018

“We spend our lives collecting, spending, lusting after, and worrying about money — in fact, when we say we “don’t have time” to learn something new, it’s usually because we are feverishly devoting our time to earning money, but something is happening right now that’s changing the relationship between money and knowledge.”

The impact of AI on employees and L&D  Christian Foerg, 16 January 2018

“It’s no secret that many industries have already felt the impact of automation. There are some truly inspirational and wonderful applications of new technology in healthcare, transportation, security, entertainment and media, among others. There’s so much that we don’t know, either. That uncertainty has been unsettling, to say the least. At some point, each one of us has thought, “How will AI impact my job?” 


L&D in the Modern Workplace

In 2011 I ran a short anonymous survey to find out what people thought about the role of L&D in the workplace. I thought I’d run it again 7 years later to find out how things had changed.
