In nature an ecosystem refers to the combination of a community of living things, the non-living elements that make up their environment, and the many ways in which those individual elements interact. In order for an ecosystem to thrive, the individual components must connect and support one another, balancing each other so that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. In the context of talent development, ecosystems also exist in the workplace. Understanding the structure and dependencies of an organizational ecosystem can help you build a better talent development strategy. In this session you will explore the expanded scope of a learning and performance ecosystem, examining the numerous components that contribute to talent development. You will also learn how these individual components can be combined into a single cohesive strategy. You will leave this session with a new perspective on how to view talent development in your organization and the role you play in supporting it.
This blog post is being set up primarily as a follow-up resource for those that attended the session, and it may also serve as a resource for anyone that wants to learn more about the technology trends that are shaping the future of learning.
