Continuous learning is when organizations encourage employees to embrace ongoing development of their skills, capabilities, and knowledge throughout their time with the organization. Traditional corporate learning prioritizes optimizing execution, and is delivered primarily through episodic, costly, in-person sessions, where information is pushed and learning is rarely retained. Continuous learning prioritizes flexibility and agility, and is ideally delivered within the workflow as part of a frequent, ongoing cycle of practice, feedback, application, and improvement.

This article, Laying the Foundation for a Practice-Driven Culture Through Continuous Learning, is the second in a series that explores the key components of a practice-driven culture and how organizations can empower their employees to reach their full potential and create a work environment where personal and business growth align so the organization can thrive.
