Ironically, while business has clearly learned to change, the learning function itself has not. p.27

Book Paragraph:
The enterprise learning function is responsible for developing the talent that drives sustainable competitive advantage for the firm. In remaining bound to the formal classroom as the primary learning modality, the learning function is significantly limiting its ability to deliver strategic value to the enterprise at precisely the time when the ability to learn and adapt in perpetuity is a becoming a core capability required by all firms. Just as businesses have had to change their strategies, structures, and infrastructures to remain competitive in increasingly dynamic market environments, the learning function must also adapt to meet the dynamic needs of the enterprise it serves. Ironically, while business has clearly learned to change, the learning function itself has not. To address this issue, learning leaders would do well to pay heed to Gloria Gery’s assertion that: “We don’t need new technology, we just need new thinking.”
