5 Teams of 4 Q. With evidence that workplaces are transforming to become dynamic marketplaces, at an ever increasing level of granularity, what are the implications for team work? Q. In terms of teamwork, a key challenge is how to create the right environment (mix of culture and the right people) to maximize the potential of new tools and new generation's practices. What kind of leadership is needed to support this future environment? How will we identify and create the new kind of leadership? Q. Knowledge work is changing and we are not adapting fast enought. The pace of this change will increase. Organizations won't be able to sit back and wait - they will need to retool their workforce constantly. What are the key skills for knowledge workers in the future?
Knowledge Work and Teams Q. With evidence that workplaces are transforming to become dynamic marketplaces, at an ever increasing level of granularity, what are the implications for team work? Q. In terms of teamwork, a key challenge is how to create the right environment (mix of culture and the right people) to maximize the potential of new tools and new practices. What kind of leadership is needed to support this future environment? Q. Knowledge work is changing and organizations may not be adapting fast enough. It’s certain the pace of change will only increase. What are the key skills for knowledge workers in the future? Q. If work becomes increasingly complex, and knowledge workers become more and more specialized, what are the implications for training professionals and how do we support this model?
35 Innovation and Performance Q. Innovation may be the key to survival for many organizations. How will training teams teach leaders to apply a healthy tension on systems to drive their evolution? Q. What ideas can you offer to improve your organization’s ability to learn collaboratively? Consider tools, processes, how you will determine who should be involved to create a diverse and rich environment for inquiry. Q. Daniel Pink said performance improves when employees have autonomy, are motivated and have purpose. Many people in your organizations may feel there is a sense of purpose. How will you help to change your organizations to support the other two variables? Q. Is it your job to help people break old paradigms and stretch their perspectives? Which groups of people most need to change mindsets? How could you approach this?
Organization Learning Q. Is it time to move our focus from jobs, competency models and even performance challenges and begin to focus teaching and training solutions at the organization level – to pursue Senge’s notion of the Learning Organization. What conditions indicate this may or may not be true? Q. If you were to begin to focus on organization learning, what are some of the new skills your team will need? What tools are missing from your current arsenal? Q. Define core organization capabilities that are common to many of the groups in this room. How could these organizations work together to improve their solutions and avoid redundant work? Q. New academic research suggests organizations should improve how they learn as they are executing; not to lay out and document the perfect plan, but to iterate, improve and document as they proceed and learn. Managers must learn how to conduct safe experiments. How might you support the notion of embedding learning into the work of your organizations?
