I wrote for my Columbia Course:
A Learning organization is one of the fundamental lessons of this course. Our world is changing quickly, so our methods and implementations must adapt. Business focus, competition, business process, finance, technology, risk and likely rewards are all rapidly evolving. So our implementations, and how they are integrated must change as well.
That learning can make our methods more efficient to implement, and produce more value. A learning organization adapts to all parts of its environment. That learning can come from academia, publications, consulting, and online resources.
And also importantly from continually retesting our proposed analytical methods, to make sure they continue to be correct under change.
A learning analytics organization also learns from previous projects. that can only happen if they have been well documented, cataloged and made readily available to colleagues. ....
