  2. 2. On Friday May 17th at 9:45 am we felt an earthquake (5.2 on Richterscale)How many felt it?I Didn’tOn Friday May 17th at 9:45 am we felt anearthquake (5.2 on Richter scale)How many felt it?I Didn’t
  3. 3. Geology lessonEarthquakes everywhere occur on faults within bedrock, usually milesdeep.So deep in the bedrock lie tectonic plates and their boundaries arebetter known as fault lines . Movement of these plates is constant butthe boundaries or faults are rough, they get stuck and when enoughpressure builds, they shift and this is an earthquake.So movement is constant and mostly unknown to people butregardless the shifts, big or small, are happening and changing
  4. 4. See the red line that’s how far that quake would reach in about 46seconds (2-3KM per second)Its at this time that the US geological Survey can receive the earliestdata … not thru their traditional seismic technologyThrough Twitter reports - TED – Twitter Earthquake Detection System20th Century solutions were not located and/or fast enough to respondto the need. The same holds true in our organizations and for theworkforce we support
  5. 5. Twitter & Earthquakes – Powerful symbols of the world we live intoday.When things change fast we need the right information at the righttime in order to respond.I believe we are in the midst of a great economic, societal,technological shift.The shift is altering our perspectives, shaking our foundations andpropelling quickly forward – ready or not!Globalization, Technology, Learning. Our Profession is not immune.The economy a great indicator of the shift
  6. 6. Lets look at a few supporting examples:Employment - Syracuse over the past 10 years - GRIM(From Bureau of Labor statistics)

  8. 8. Corporate profits at record highs and yet jobs are scarce – why?Stability is the exception not the norm. “JOBS” are an icon of the past.Our work situations our work environments are changing – How canwe make sense of it all??
  9. 9. This is Dave Snowden’s Sense making Model – Cynefin (Kunevin –Celtic …the habitat)This is a busy slide. Lets look at this another way and how this modelcan help

  11. 11. Our world and the world of work we support is shifting1. We have shifted from Simple agrarian models to Complex models.1. Simple work: mentoring, apprenticeships and tacitknowledge sharing were appropriate, effective2. Complicated work: knowledge can be codified, behavior thatwas repeatable was valuable.3. Training was idealToday simple work is being automated (ATMs, Forklifts, Automanufacturing, etc). Complicated work is sent overseas (Code, callcenters, Custom apparel)SHIFT!6. Workers need information today, knowledge is flowing, not static7. Value is in learning – continuously, through networks
  12. 12. Energy is building - Joining and dissolving just as quickly. The worldhas shifted from complicated to complexWhat does this mean for learning professional?How do we adjust to support complex work?L&D shift from:Content creators to curatorsKnowledge management to personal knowledge managementLearning Event coordinators to Continuous learning enablersCourse builders to community facilitators
  13. 13. How do we start?We must connect.Become more open and transparent. Become nodes in a (Personallearning) network.To support continuous learning – we must continuously learnIt is here we Seek – Sense – and Share (Harold Jarche)Here are my key Thought Leaders and I invite you to reach out to them– it’s a good starting point.Harold JarcheLife inPerpetual BetaAndrew McAfeeRace Against theMachineJohn Seeley BrownThe Powerof PullJay CrossThe WorkingSmarterField BookEuan SempleOrganizations Don’tTweet People DoJon HusbandWirearchy
