The Goals of Organization Learning are Changing

Organizations have to change and not only that - they have to become better at it. This means the goals of organizational learning must also change.

The focus has to shift from job-related training for all but high potentials to developing every employee's ability to explore, learn and grow.


In other words, it's no longer only about training employees for what they need now, but also about positioning the entire organization for future success.

Lundberg and Westerman describe 4 levers to achieve this at an organizational level:
1. Reshape leadership development (make top managers understand, live, apply and exemplify the above).
2. Concentrate on capabilities, not competences (focus on developing appropriate mindsets and behaviors rather then currently needed skills).
3. Emphasize digital thinking, awareness and aptitude.
4. Cultivate curiosity and a growth mindset.
