Why develop a model for shared learning? As a collaborative leader, you play a big role in picking the shared learning model that works best for you and your fellow collaborators. In “Models for Shared Learning,” Maj. Renee Swift McCain, Ed.D., USAFR, explains the culture, practices, and changing priorities of organizational learning. An organizational learning strategy ensures that the collective retains vital lessons learned and avoids unnecessary trial-and-error. Shared learning is closely linked with two of the core collective impact conditions of success: shared measurement and common agenda. Like a triathlon team referencing a GPS during a race, we measure not merely to know where we are in relation to our goal, but to assess what we must do, in relation to the others with whom we’re working, to achieve it. That moment of assessment is where shared learning lives.
