People Management: How do you make next generation learning a reality?

Personalised programmes can transform your L&D offering – but there are important design principles to follow, says Paul Ashcroft

The concept of next generation learning has gradually moved its way up the boardroom agenda. Executed well, it enables organisations to build vital transformative skills, mindsets and behaviours, faster and more cost-effectively than ever before.

It’s also a learning style that is in high demand by employees. In fact, Ludic Group’s recent report highlighted that, currently, more than a quarter (26 per cent) of employees do not feel training is personalised enough. Next generation learning provides the solution.

But to ensure it is a success, there are several design principles it’s worth paying attention to first.

Technology drives digital transformation but companies lack the right tools to make this a reality.

In the rally to digitally transform, organisations lose control and are in digital chaos, preventing them from getting the communications balance with their people right.

Currently many organisations are experiencing digital chaos, according to a recent report from Ludic Group.

In the Reimagining the workplace of the future report, Ludic surveyed more than 5000 UK people to highlight the fundamental changes taking place in our working environment, both physical and emotional, and the role technology is playing in driving a new approach to people engagement and communication, learning and business transformation.

A third (33%) of the respondents in the report said that the collaboration tools they use in their personal lives are better than those used at work and as a result, many people are bypassing their organisation’s IT systems. There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to flexible working. To engage hyper-connected people, organisations need to provide a coherent set of tools, apps and channels, which are individually tailored to meet the needs of their diverse workforce.

While ageing workforces still seem to be using traditional ways of communications such as emails, younger people and millennials require more communications from their employers and find themselves disconnected from the business strategy.

The most successful organisations will be the ones to invest in more tailored technology and provide more guidance around the most effective ways of using and combining both publically available and internal technology. Organisations cannot consider themselves closed systems and need to create a competitive ecosystem of digital tools and apps. The quality of the digital landscape (tools and apps) provided will have a direct impact on the competitiveness of the organisation.

About the Foundation

Bankinter Foundation of Innovation, emerged naturally from the bank’s culture as an extension of Bankinter’s strategic values and pillars. Its resolute mission form its origins, is to implement a breakaway model for societal commitment and contribution, radically distancing itself from the traditional, universally accepted concept of a "foundation". The Foundation is different for many reasons: its focus, target audience, management model, projects, constituent members, partners and collaborators, media presence, the value it brings to society, etc.  The Foundation's mission entails generating and consolidating innovation in the Spanish business world, in support of its ongoing commitment to bringing long-term value to all groups, but especially to entrepreneurs and those who have an impact on economic change. 
The Foundation strives to stimulate wealth creation in the Spanish business environment by seeking knowledge networks that promote tangible innovation anywhere in the world and that anticipate new trends. The target audience consists of all active agents capable of fostering sustainable wealth in the society over any time frame, whether they are existing decision makers (businessmen, entrepreneurs, high-level executives…) or those of the future (university students).

Every year FTF experts detect the innovative trends that will have the largest impact on our near future. They define the key issues and invite the world’s top experts on these to collaborate in Madrid and anticipate challenges brought about by each trend. Following the Madrid meeting, FTF publishes the Future Trends Report presenting these trends and the conclusions drawn on their potential impact aiming to anticipate the future and encourage innovation in society.

The only foundation in the European financial system committed to fostering innovation-sustained wealth.
