No theory-practice gap – accelerating management learning

No theory-practice gap – accelerating management learning

 

Did you know that more information was created in the past 2 years than in the history of human kind?

According to IBM research 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created every day – (18 or 30 zeros depending on whether you are in US or England) it’s a lot – that’s like 340 newspapers being delivered to every man, woman and child on the planet!

According to the National Institute of Health in the US – there are 185,000 clinical trials every year. How do clinicians know their practice is based on current evidence?

The reality is that you can’t know everything – so knowing things is no longer enough. We need to know how to get information, evidence and then make sense of it.

That’s what makes it so important to create cultures where everyone’s contribution is valued and they are encouraged to continually review what they do know, continue learning and testing their assumptions. To foster this culture, we don’t have to have all answers – we need to ask great questions and find innovative solutions.

80% of people will tell you that their greatest learning experiences occurred while they were trying to complete a task. This is what Sugata Mitra (educationalist and TED Speaker)  found in his studies and has been disrupting traditional forms of education with his Self Organised Learning Environments ever since – where people learn by solving problems together. Similarly Salman Khan was probably the first to coin the term flipped class room – where the class room is for applying the thinking – the thinking is done before they get to the class room!

Our Clinician to Manager Acceleration Program is based on these principles so the learning experience is directly translated into practice – there is no theory-practice gap – and that is why it is ‘accelerated learning.
