Sample text

They analyse the dilemmas that occur when the demand for speed conflicts with the demand for accuracy and learning, especially in today’s more pressurised world. They identify and illustrate ten strategies that individuals and organisations can use to come closer to meeting conflicting demands, or at the least, to better recognise the tradeoffs they are making. Managers play a critical role in this process. They are often the facilitator of debriefing sessions, the questioner challenging assumptions in a planning or problem-solving session, and the coach and teacher when individuals come with a problem for which they do not now have the knowledge or skill to resolve.

A final strand of the argument in this chapter is to do with change over time. Although it is certainly not the case that theories of learning, and the practices associated with them, have succeeded one another in a neat chronology that can be located in easily defined eras in recent history, there is without doubt a historicity to them. The theories and practices, and the people who developed and championed them, do belong to different time periods and their work reflects broader theoretical and practical trends crossing their eras.

Mention was made of the historicity of our ideas about learning. The schools of thought discussed here do not fall into a neat chronology, but there is some rough ordering of them in relation to ideas that have been at the forefront over the last 80 years. These can be very roughly grouped. 2 can be suggested, which give some sense of how our conceptions of learning and the self have themselves developed over recent history. There is a clear sense of progression here from individual passive and active learning, through the social to a more fully integrated concept of learning.
