Real-time training

a remedy for change

When companies decide to operate with a reduced work force, it often changes the way that employees work together. Traditional training looks at the issue from the outside and often focuses on the production of a training product or on managing the work environment. A new emphasis in training focuses on how people learn at work and makes the assumption - based on research in social learning theory - that people learn best from the act of working and in the company of their coworkers. Real-time training integrates the worker and the work environment in a way to promote the organization's goals. This article describes a self-organizing, ecological model of real-time training that uses work itself as the primary learning process.
