Learning in a Recession?

Ich zitiere aus dem aktuellen Newsletter von Elliott Masie:

“In the last few weeks, we have had a good number of calls from learning colleagues in the United States, asking for perspective on how Learning will do if we are headed toward (or already in) an economic recession. This is a serious and actually quite depressing topic for learning executives. …

… investments in learning systems and infrastructure can already be seen as getting tougher. There are two companies that were ready to sign a contract for a new LMS in January 2008, yet were told to hold off or cancel the contract. It was seen as a difficult time to be spending when the future of the economy was uncertain. Another CLO was told to shrink her staff by 40% in the next three months, in order to be seen as “tightening” the budget. …

The MASIE Center is creating a Learning & Recession Task Force, to look at strategies for reacting to tough economic times. I would love to have both volunteers and also your comments and perspectives. Just send me an email to emasie@masie.com.”

Ich bin immer wieder beeindruckt, wie schnell Elliott Masie aktuelle Entwicklungen aufgreift und in konkrete Aktionen umsetzt. Über ihren Output läßt sich aus der Ferne schwer urteilen. Aber solche Zeichen signalisieren, dass man als Learning Professionals “mittendrin” steht! Wo gibt es hierzulande Vergleichbares? Und damit meine ich nicht nur die aktuelle Finanzkrise! Der DGfP, der zu einem spontanen Arbeitskreis aufruft? Oder die LEARNTEC, die kurzfristig zu einem Round Table einlädt, weil ein Thema gerade “brennt”?
