Knowledge is no longer power - access to the right knowledge is what has become critical, says Martin Baker, MD of leadership and management on-line learning specialists LMMatters. He tackles the topic of Too Much Information in the latest edition of Training Journal - and he'll be talking about a solution at a free seminar at Learning Technologies on 26 January.
"Together, the internet and mobile devices have transformed the way that we send and receive information, so that we are living in a world of virtual-information pollution. Have we, in fact, got to the stage where we can no longer work effectively and efficiently because of the very inventions that were intended to make our lives easier?"
That's the question that Martin Baker, MD of leadership and management online learning specialists LMMatters poses in a viewpoint online and in the January edition of Training Journal.
"This is particularly pertinent if you are interested in the latest thinking in leadership and management." He says in the article. "Type leadership into Google, for example, and a staggering 120 million entries appear. Management is even worse, with almost 600 million entries. So how do you sort the wheat from the chaff, the good from the bad, or the just plain ugly?"
"I truly believe that how we communicate effectively, both face to face and on-line, is one of the greatest challenges that leaders and managers face today," he says.
Martin - recently named as one of eLearning's top 'movers and shakers' - will address this thorny topic at a free seminar at Learning Technologies, Olympia 2, London on 26 January, 11am in seminar theatre 5, where he'll be demonstrating LMKnowledge, a new solution to leadership, management and business 'information overload'.
He'll explain how LMKnowledge provides a gateway to relevant leadership, management and business resources, and will be unveiling a new, exclusive Leadership and Management App - enabling you to access information instantly and on the move.
