Impact of agile learning
Many companies apply a rather classical learning approach. A team-lead is going to talk with each team-member - e.g. developers or testers- about the planned achievements of the next year. Together they have a look at a priorly evaluated catalog of trainings and decide what kind of training the team-member is going to participate in. This approach supports the team-leads in supporting their team members as well as in planning competences throughout the team. But what kind of impact does this kind of learning have on the team-member itself - the team - the company or even the industry? What happens, if the learner has the free choice to decide what he or she likes to learn? How could this, perhaps even combined with a learner supporting role, change the impact developmement team members have? What does this role, what we call the agile learning coach, exactly do? In this talk I will talk about how different kind of trainings could lead not only to different learning outcomes but also might influence the impact of a development team.
