I don’t have time to write a long post – so I’ll just mention en passant some books that I’ve read recently.
The Myths of Innovation is a brilliant explanation of the challenges of innovation and how it actually works in the real world.
Make it Stick is a great summary of recent research on how we learn. Since we are all knowledge workers now – and thus all ‘continuous learners’ I highly recommend you read this book before scoping your next learning challenge. Some of it is common sense, and some of it is academic – but it was a great compendium of academic research, and I’ve made copious notes!
