A successful business is created through continuous, collaborative and purposeful learning

“In the global economy, producing knowledge and learning are viewed as means for organizational success.” (Tikkamäki, K.2006).

Meaningfulness

The world is rapidly changing or evolving. Global markets are ensuring that everyone is on their toes when it comes to education and learning also in business. Another phenomenon tightly related to this time is the feelings of meaningfulness regarding work.

I refer to the term as something that connects an individual’s values to the task at hand. It helps professionals feel like the task is worthwhile doing for themselves, but also the organization and society. Above all, individuals need to see the purpose of what they do to become and stay motivated, and committed.  

Participation, collaboration, and continuity

I explore the relation of meaningfulness and learning through three aspects, participation, collaboration, and continuity. Involve individuals in designing learning initiatives, supporting information sharing, and knowledge construction to create meaningful learning.

The meaningfulness of learning is the key to competence development and the capability of organizations to renew and thrive.   

Participation  

Create commitment by participating employees, in designing what kind of training they need with their work and the changing world. Because the ones involved with the everyday tasks that are the best to identify the challenges involved in their work. Management can then offer support such as training, for instance, together with relevant partners.

To foster autonomy, purpose, and meaningfulness, let your employees take part in selecting what training suits them. Most importantly, helping them self-evaluate what they need as individuals and as teams.  

Collaborative learning  

Collaborative information sharing, or new information or transformation, will certainly bring out tacit knowledge. The more practical the work, the more hidden knowledge is accumulated through a person’s working years.

Individual employees easily become invaluable and are in a key role in redefining company practices. In online learning, you can bring out hidden knowledge and provide a platform to construct new knowledge, ideas, and innovations.

Continuous learning   

Since the world, businesses, and jobs change, something learned 20 or a few years ago might not be viable anymore. Therefore as a leader of today and tomorrow, be sure you are offering your employees and yourself continuous learning opportunities. To help your staff stay competitive on the job market update their competence.

Meanwhile, you will gain insight from your employees regarding the future scenarios of your organization and the needs for further education.
