"Learning Organizations, Work Flow and IT" Voice Over

get PDF here

Organizations use a wide variety of computer business applications to do their day to day business. Automated business work flow capture and "hide" reasons for the sequence of events and reasons for decisions at particular points in this sequence in computer code. Automated business work flows are a "knowledge sink". When changes are made to the automated work flow, management and staff need to be "reminded" of the underlying business rules which have been captured in the automation code, and the reasons for change.

As a result, there is a need for a careful integration between what the IT professionals and the Talent Development / Learning Professionals in the organization are doing. Changes to business work flows need to be tightly coupled to the roll out of organizational change related learning. But this need is not well recognized, resulting in a loss of money, de-motivation and missed opportunity in most modern organizations.

"Handbooks for New Members of Automation Project Steering Committees" PDF IT projects - especially software development projects, often go over budget and over time. Project steering committees are set up to avoid these common occurrences. To make them effective, new members of such committees, particularly if they are from the "business", need guidance on their role and the decisions they face as members.
