Get Off – and Quit Renaming – My Paradigm

With apologies to The Rolling Stones.

What is WOINA?

What’s Old Is New Again?

In my view it includes:

Design Thinking – Show Your Work – Empathy – Performance Support/Learning in the WorkFlow – Micro-learning – Informal Learning – Backward Chaining – 70-20-10 or 10-20-70 – Agile – Stories – ROI Evaluation – Performance Consulting – Learning Journeys – Games – to name but a few (maybe most).

This video is 4:31 minutes in length.

I don’t feel so all alone in this. And my real issue with all of this Continuous Re-naming is that it makes it very difficult to new folks coming into the field. They need to be current – no doubt. They need to master the Processes, Practices, Tools and Techniques of their Enterprise/Customers.

But they also need to learn the History and Lessons Learned behind each of those Processes, Practices, Tools and Techniques – so they better understand under which set of conditions do they seem to work, and under which where they don’t work so well.

And then conduct themselves accordingly – as being Forewarned is being Forearmed.
