There's no scientific evidence that learning styles exist.  But there is evidence that stimulating multiple senses increases learning.  So rather than trying to find the right learning style into to which to pigeonhole each learner, it would be better to include resources that stimulate different senses for everyone.
 
And certain content cries out for certain senses to be stimulated - as illustrated in this article

This post has some good checklists for planning and executing an #ERPimplementation  

Note that the top reason for implementation failure is poor change management.  This highlights the needs for engagement of everyone in the project: sponsorship by senior management; communication of the needs, changes and benefits; involvement of managers and employees; and sustained learning to unlock the benefits of the technology

Implementing or upgrading an ERP system is hard.  Understanding the technology and managing the processes is complex.  But the biggest challenge is often engaging the people involved and providing them with the right tools to learn the necessary new skills and knowledge.

The CLS webinar on Thursday 17th at noon will look at meeting this challenge.  Join us to find out about #unlockingvalue  from your tech adoption http://www.clsperformance.com/articles/webinar-unlocking-tech-adoption-value.html

Serendipity - intense competition and squeeze on costs forcing companies to change some traditional training methods (see the Day to Day section in +Julian Stodd 's attached post) together with the increasing use of readily available learning tools by people in their everyday life (well set out by Andrew Jacobs in his post http://lostanddesperate.com/2016/02/22/one-question/)

The result is an opportunity to improve learning with more focus on learning on demand, learning at the moment of need, sustained learning.  An opportunity to be seized

Read the first article in this review where Robin Hoyle warns of the danger of learners becoming locked in their own prison if they are left to choose their own learning with no guidance  http://www.brightwavegroup.com/userfiles/Documents/Brightwave_Learning_Technologies_2016_report.pdf
David James makes great points about leveraging the willingness of employees to improve the way they work and the power that smartphones provide to help L&D support this.

Do you agree that corporate learning must also nudge them if necessary to ensure that they are working within guidelines and to help align objectives

Mike Prokopeak raises the question of whether we should be prepared for learning to binge on learning resources.

While the TV analogy holds for making lots of content available for users to access when and wherever they want, surely we should discourage binging since it is mainly by experience that we learn?

Lots of content that learners can use at the point of need is great, and bite-size chunks that they can digest and then try out is even better

Jurgen Appelo argues that if 70% of change initiatives fail, then change managers are failing to make a difference.

But his analogy with politicians and local TV in cities ignores the fact that #changemanagement  in businesses is done for the benefit of the organisation.  Of course, it should take into account the needs of stakeholders, of whom employees make up a vital part.  However that contrasts with cities which should be run in the SERVICE of their citizens.
