Learning vs lending culture

The World Bank has recently undergone a major restructure to reflect it's purpose of becoming a 'solutions bank'. This requires a significant shift in how knowledge is used and shared. Monika Weber-Fahr, head of knowledge at the World Bank's Independent Evaluation Group (IEG) recently chaired an excellent conference on the most important topics contributing to organisational learning culture at the Bank 'How the Bank Learns' (80 mins). The speakers are managers of front-line departments ('Global Practices'), so their ideas on knowledge sharing and collaboration are perspective and pragmatic.
This video is also very good to see an innovative panel format, quality of chairmanship and use of real-time event tools.

All of the ideas about learning culture and 'making time for learning' in large organisations are relevant to KIN members.
