The Future of Work and Learning 1: The Professional Ecosystem
“Each of us is the center of the universe. So is everyone else.” e e cummings In my previous post I looked at the individual’s perspective of workplace learning and included a graphic showing how individuals learn at and for work in 10 main ways. Essentially, I was describing a Professional Ecosystem (PES) – a set of organisational and personal, interconnecting and interacting elements – content, people, software, services, apps, etc – that helps an individual do their jobsolve performance problemscommunicate and collaborate with othersself-improve (for their existing work and/or future career), as well askeep up to date with what is happening in their industry or profession so that they remain relevant and marketable. The graphic above is an example of the tools and services an individual might make use of as part of his/her PES. A PES is therefore all of the following, but much more than any of them individually: So why do individuals need a PES? So how do PESs fit into organisations?
