In the February 2019 edition of my “In Real Life” column in Learning Solutions Magazine, I wonder out loud “are we asking the right question when it comes to AI in L&D?”
We won’t know the extent to which AI—or any other technology—will ultimately impact the way work gets done within an organization until all of the factors are in play. But plenty of examples are already becoming available. Rather than remain siloed within our own sphere of influence, L&D pros must work to get aligned with the larger strategies taking shape across the organization. We won’t get to make decisions regarding how AI impacts us, but we can do our best to get ahead of the curve and begin shifting our own paradigms to better support what’s coming. And get ready! Unlike some other workplace changes that have taken more than a decade to reach our shores, this one seems to be picking up speed VERY quickly.
