A presentation about the fact that Learning and Development is broken. How we are all navel gazing, focused too much on benchmarking and best practice and not aware of the Cynefin framework. The solution is to go to the edge. There are three examples of "edges" here: Automattic as an example of distributed virtual teams really working, experimental academics finding out how to scale personalised education in Massive Open Online Courses and Mozilla coming up with Open Badges as an alternative to competency management. The story closes with the lean startup methodology as a way to set up your own experimentation.
