Replying to LO13764 --


Your 'model' seems to equate learning with advancement. As organisations
are getting 'flatter' this becomes an increasingly impossible situation.

I have long held the view that learning, doing new things need not relate
to advancement in conventional terms.

Doing more can mean greater freedom to control my own work, greater
opportunity to deal with more situations without reference to management.

In wider terms I believe we have to get people to want to learn and not to
expect advancement because what you say is true, there are not that many

Not everyone wants to advance, not everyone wants to learn. I believe that
it will be difficult to run an organisation in the near future where
people are not learning. THings are changing in most situations so quickly
(even in MacDOnalds the range of food is changing so the staff need to be
able to cope with that part)

I shall be interested to so what other coments you get.
