NEW BLOG POST!Performance Support: Hiding in Plain Sight but Not So Much in the Training World. Now it’s time to change how we think about performance support in our professional practice, so that we can realize the same possibilities in the work we do. Sponsored by Ontuitive. November 2012. Access the blog post here.
Beyond Competence: It's the Journey to Mastery that Counts. We have tended to think of competence as a fixed point: either you are competent or you are not. If that’s the whole story, Albert Einstein was just a competent physicist, Florence Nightingale was a competent nurse, and the Beatles were only a competent band. There has to be more, beyond mere competence. There’s a continuum of performance from novice to master. Learn about it here!
Marc will be speaking at several professional conferences in 2013. A calendar of 2013 speaking engagements is here. Check back often as new dates are added throughout the year.

With organizational learning and performance improvement as his life's work, Marc has helped define -- and redefine the field for more than two decades. Today, Marc brings this perspective, along with a set of five unique capabilities, to each consulting and speaking engagement:
Strategic View. Organizational learning is a critical business tool that includes, but also transcends the classroom or training function. By looking beyond the five to ten percent of the yearly work time that people are in formal training, and applying learning and knowledge strategies to actual job performance, day in and day out, maximum impact and value is achieved.
Outstanding Platform Skills. Long-standing reputation as a keynote speaker and workshop leader for both public/professional and private/corporate functions.
Thought Leadership through Deep Experience. Twenty-five years of work in university, corporate and consulting settings brings a wealth of deep professional knowledge to each engagement, including the insight that comes from "lessons learned."
Flexible Network of Resources. The ability to draw from a network of highly talented individuals and firms, across a broad spectrum of skills and disciplines, ensures that resources are precisely matched to the needs of the project and the expectations of the client.
Strong Facilitation and Change Management Skills. Even the best strategies can be ineffective if they are not communicated well or supported over the long term. Helping people communicate -- and build buy-in -- before, during and after implementation, is critical.
New Workshop: "Managing Organizational Knowledge" Sponsored by ASTD
Effective knowledge sharing enhances employee performance, fosters innovation, and facilitates the exchange of an organization's most important commodity - the "know-how" of the people who make the difference between success and failure. Leveraging organizational knowledge for maximum impact requires approaches that include, but also transcend formal training. Workplace learning and performance professionals will increasingly use Knowledge Management (KM) strategies to create information repositories, communities of practice, access to experts and expertise, and other new approaches that will enable anytime, anywhere knowledge and collaboration, in the context of work. Principles and benefits of KM, a framework for making KM a reality, strategies for enhancing organizational readiness for KM, and the implications of KM for the training field, will be covered in this interactive, non-technical workshop.
This one and a half day workshop is based on the ASTD Competency Study, and helps in preparation for obtaining the Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) credential. The workshop is taught by Marc Rosenberg. Click here for more information, including description, objectives, registration, fees, dates and locations (including offerings co-located with ASTD conferences). This program can also be delivered on-site.
