Strategic learning invaluable to building organisational capability
By: Pursuit Technology
An organisational capability framework creates a common language of expected behaviours across teams, as well as providing a basis for resourcing and workforce planning activities. It helps organisations plug risks associated with changes, create a universal language for strategic issues and clearly define competitive differentiators. It's also a stable reference for business architecture.
"Capabilities are pretty much the only business tool that will directly impact your CEO's focus and your competitive advantage," said Blake Proberts (Co-Founder and Managing Director). "Building learning programs around capability gaps builds a moat around your strategy, ensuring you're not susceptible to detrimental environmental changes."
The inimitably of capabilities is often due to a combination of time crunch and the path taken to develop them. Competitors would need to follow the same path of internal learning to replicate this, which is somewhat impossible when L&D is tailored to an organisation's investments and industry standard. This inimitability can be achieved with strategic learning.
Strategic learning is a dynamic approach to L&D that shapes learning programs with insights from internal and external environments, ultimately adapting them to meet changing business and employee needs. Tying strategic learning to capability frameworks benefits organisations by making capabilities a dynamic learning resource.
Strategic learning can be best designed, implemented and revised with the strategic learning cycle. This cycle bears 4 key steps: Analysis, focus, execution and measurement.
