The Future Experts: Life-long learners in innovative teams
talk – 20 min | Feb 2 – 16:00
This research focused on informal knowledge sharing between future technology, management and design experts. Learning what is needed to stay relevant and lead in a rapidly changing world.
In the knowledge economy, the organizational knowledge base is built on individuals constituting an important part of the organization’s advantage driving it to thrive in a volatile and competitive market. Success lies in the organization’s ability to use information in solving complex problems and innovation. For people operating in multidisciplinary innovative teams, there is a need to constantly adapt, thus, Life-Long Learning programs are a necessity.
Findings from this research in Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, illustrate that informal peer learning is the ‘magic’ enabling flow of new ideas and drive personal innovation, required for entering new fields of knowledge.
I’ll share key insights regarding two motivations of experts; Life-Long Learning to stay up to date with the ‘broad’ information, alongside skills practice through problem-solving tasks. There is a clear need for experienced professionals and experts during the experimentation, innovative process to continuously reach relevant content, through other people, effortlessly and anytime.
