Product description


"Workplace Learning is a powerful book that makes a compelling and well-researched case for reviving-and modernizing-the concept of the 'Learning Organization'. Building an organization that has learning as a habit, and sharing insight as a pre-requisite, is the easiest and most cost-effective means of sustaining innovation and unleashing creativity. This book provides the building blocks to achieve this and is an important addition to the talent agenda."--Annie McKee, Author of How to Be Happy at Work

"As we evolve from a predictable "Find-it-Out" world to an unpredictable "Figure-it-Out" one, the need to cultivate a learning culture in organizations becomes increasingly acute. Thankfully, in this masterful book, Nigel Paine has created a blueprint to do just that. Within these pages you will find a sound synthesis of the theory and research on what is required to build a learning culture and practical case studies that bring these ideas to life in a clear and compelling way. If you're learning strategy calls for building a more responsive, resilient and agile organization, ignore this book at your own peril."--Prof. Tony O'Driscoll, Fuqua School of Business, Duke University

"I loved this book. It is right on the note. In a world that doesn't change, there is no need to learn. For creatures of all kinds learning serves to adapt us to our surroundings, so in a world of daily change we must become everyday learners. Everyday learners can only flourish in a culture that visibly values learning - one where the essentially playful, exploratory, and collaborative nature of learning is celebrated. A culture where people are engaged in learning. Read this book if you want to work out how to build such a culture of learning."--Nick Shackleton-Jones PA Consulting

"In Workplace Learning, Nigel Paine has written an enjoyable and thought-provoking work on how organizations can thrive when they focus on building a learning culture.This book is not only relevant, but also powerful in making the case that culture is still one of the most important attributes when fostering continuous learning, which is so critical in the workplace now and in the future. I cannot recommend this book highly enough."--Kelly Palmer, Chief Learning Officer, Degreed

"Nigel Paine's excellent book provides a deep dive into issues of learning culture that should be the prime focus of every Chief Executive and every learning leader across the globe. In today's world, the speed at which organizations learn is their only guarantee for success. This well-researched book presents a compelling case for organizations to create a culture of continuous workplace learning. It outlines the major workforce strategies organizations need to survive and thrive."--Charles Jennings, co-founder, 70:20:10 Institute

"The history of organizations that have succeeded in sustaining growth and high performance over the long term suggests that one of the fundamental enablers is having a culture of learning. This insightful and immensely practical book sets out a compelling case for building a learning culture, and more importantly, shows how to do it."--Gillian Pillans. Director of Research: Corporate Research Forum

"This book puts its finger on something I have long held to be hugely important: the significant difference a learning culture contributes to performance at both an individual and organizational level. I would recommend that every learning leader reads this book and absorb its lessons. It is an easy, yet profound, read and anyone interesting in strengthening the talent agenda and increasing the power and impact of learning in their organization should grab this book with both hands. I think that it will have a significant impact on large numbers of staff in L&D, HR, talent and organizational development."--Elliott Masie Host and Curator of the Learning Conference, Corporate Learning Expert and Guru, Head of the Masie Center Saratoga Springs NY
