Lifelong learning from an organizations perspective:
- Strategy must play a stronger role where learning is part of the organizational narrative not just an afterthought.
- Focus learning activities on building organizational intelligence with individual learning. Individual learning becomes organizational intelligence when it changes processes, shared understandings or artifacts (like the organizational narrative).
- Organizations need a learning infrastructure. Six Sigma is one example, except that it could be more broadly focused beyond quality.
I think there might be some room for further development of these ideas.
