Managing Your Own Learning

This guide for independent learning and workplace training presents seven powerful strategies for staying ahead in today’s knowledge-based economy.
These days, perpetual learning is an essential professional skill and a vital part of any business. It’s important to have effective learning strategies that work for you and your team. This practical guide offers a comprehensive approach to creating a focused philosophy of learning, choosing the best approach to planning programs and activities, and developing appropriate systems for assessing results.
The authors cover seven powerful training strategies: Behavioral, Cognitive, Inquiry, Mental Models, Group Dynamics, Virtual Reality, and Holistic. They provide a detailed description of each, including the learning theory behind it, its strengths and weaknesses, practical examples of the strategy in action, and side-by-side comparisons showing its appropriate uses.
Based on well-researched theories of learning, this book is rich in examples from more than sixty-five worldwide business leaders—including Eastman Kodak, Motorola, SHARP, United Airlines, Norsk Hydro, ABB Atom, Boeing, TELEBRAS, and the U.S. Air Force.
