Learning Teams Community is brought to you by the authors of the book "The Practice of Learning Teams". Our goal is to support organizations and practitioners who want to learn and improve their safety, quality or operational excellence using Learning Teams. This support is offered with both free and paid commercial content.
Learning Teams is notable because it encourages organizations to obtain and consider different perspectives and angles to define a problem in a group context. The different perspectives that emerge from a Learning Teams group demonstrate that no one person holds all the knowledge needed to solve complex problems. Learning Teams involves facilitated engagement (a facilitator) with workers to understand and then learn from the opportunities that are presented by everyday successful work. Learning Teams allow both workers to learn and the organization to learn through gathering business intelligence to support successful everyday work in safety, quality and operational excellence.
Operational learning "Blue line/Black line" exists in everyday successful work. Everyday Learning Teams involves a way to gather intelligence from the opportunities that are presented by everyday work for both workers and the organization. Workers have an opportunity with everyday learning teams to improve through an intentional learning process and better understanding of operational learning that occurs between work as planned and work as done. Everyday Learning Teams, recognise that learnings that workers gain from operational learning, happen in micro-changes or small amounts, daily. Where as, organizational learning happens in macro-changes, being a more substantial amount of information, by analysing the business intelligence gained from everyday learning teams to determine if a further deep dive is needed by conducting a Management of Change or periodic Learning Team.
Learning and improving safety, quality and operational excellence. Written by Brent Sutton, Glynis McCarthy and Brent Robinson with foreword by Dr Todd Conklin.
“The Practice of Learning Teams” will become a powerful resource in changing the way organizations learn and improve their operations. This book is easy to read and full of great concepts that can be used as soon as you read them. I love a book where you read an idea in the morning and try the same idea that very afternoon.
