Strategic Drift LO24314

Replying to LO24292 --

Stealth learning has been used successfully by Dell. John Cone at Dell and
formerly of Motorola has developed a teaching system using intranet sites
so any employee can learn what is needed when needed.

He calls it stealth learning because it does not require class time. The
employee recognizes a need to learn and has access to information when and
as needed.

Dell uses a combination of out sourced teaching and in house information.
They have had to add over 200 per employees per week for sustained periods
and keep on working.

Information like this is shared regularly at AME work shops and in Target
