The Value of Contextual Awareness in Organisation Learning
srinivas, Test Manager, India

I think that even though learning by experience, though execution of similar projects, will be a valuable asset in solving problems of our current project under execution, it boils down to learning about the contextual information and its application which holds the key for resolving the issues.
The more we are mindful with regard to the contextual information and the more we gather it through learning, the better we will be in solving the problems of the current project.
In that scenario a fresh, mindful awareness of the contextual information will an advantage over a person who is having experience in many similar projects, but not having contextual awareness.
Or can we say as experience grows the better a person will be having a better contextual awareness in solving problems at hand?

Contextual Awareness in Organizational Learning
Ceferino Dulay, Jr., Other, Philippines
In engineering courses, contextual awareness is developed as a student solves problems since the solution, even with the use of one equation, normally involve analysis of other situations or givens in the problem. It is normally not a matter of just putting in values in the equation but these values are derived using other equations based on the situation in the problem. This thinking process became very useful in doing projects such as in R&D or operations or in business management. This can be enhanced further when used in actual operational or business problems or projects. As a result, when I was a manager in R&D and later in business, we would discuss plans and results including the actual situations that transpired. In this way, the staff is able to analyze problems/projects in a more holistic manner and get the desired results faster with just the required resources. During discussions, the staff learns different approaches.

Role of Mentors State of Conciouness in Organisation Learning

Also as a student and a teacher for engineering students I observed there could be a role in mentor's state of consciousness in the effectiveness in the process of learning.
For example if two mentors with two levels of integrity give the same set of instructions to a group of similar mentees, then the instructions or suggestions that is from the mentor whose integrity level is high will be better accepted by the majority of mentees.
Is there a role of intensity of impressions in subconscious mind of mentor to play in effective knowledge transfer? The more clear the conscience is of the mentor, the less internal conflicts hell have and the more clear he can be. The more clear, the more effective will be the knowledge transfer?
If that is the case, then how can we reduce the intensity of the impressions in the subconscious of our mind? What are the ways and means?

Role of Technical Trainers in Organizational Learning
Ceferino Dulay, Jr., Other, Philippines
Technical discussions normally do not involve emotional issues. Integrity, in this case, is based on the level of knowledge/experience of the mentor and ability to analyze situations rather than internal conflicts. It is usually best not to involve emotional issues so that there is clarity in the discussion which is normally how technical trainers and mentors would handle learning.

Organisation Learning and Performance with Regard to Agility
srinivas, Test Manager, India
I was referring to a case where a mentor out of the grace and love towards the mentees, would uplift the level of consciousness by way of disassociation of mentees latent impressions and by way of mentors association. The performance levels were improved in any field.
As you know mentor <-> mentees relationship is a key ingredient to see through the change. And for agility in organizations, frequent changes are to be embraced by the employees.
