Day 21: Build a culture of continuous learning

In How to build a culture of continuous learning: 3 ideas to borrow, Tuomas Syrjanen and Hanno Nevanlinna write

“Unless we can outlearn our competition, we will not be in the race”

They offer three ways to ensure that your people are continuously learning:

  1. Break your bubbles
  2. Revisit, re-evaluate, and share your retrospectives
  3. Tap into the power of informal social networks

At the end of the article they write a powerful paragraph

“We often call our company “the ultimate learning platform” because learning has been at the core of the company since its beginning – and we’ve worked to embed it into everything we do. Like any organization that is striving to innovate and grow, we have faced challenges big and small and evolved our approaches over time to adapt. We are driven by the understanding that in order to be the best at whatever you do, you must help everyone in the company learn and share to create success.”

Could you call your own company “a learning platform”? What are you doing to help everyone in your company continuously learn and share to create success?

SHARE your thoughts with your team.
What can you collectively do to help your organisation become “a learning platform”?
