What is the learning journey?
Learning Journeys, in its simplest form, are customized field trips. However, they tend to be much more than that. A learning journey is a process and practice for exploration and discovery through having intense immersive experiences developed to surface, test and shift key assumptions about the future. It’s about finding the future in the present by experiencing the people, places, projects, and prototypes that represent some aspect of how the world is changing; or isn’t changing; or how it could or should be changing for the better. It’s also about getting people out of their comfort zones and normal environment to re-perceive possibilities and trigger breakthrough insights at the personal, team and organizational level.
Benefits of a Learning Journey
The benefits of a learning journey are many – for the individual and the organization-that are:
a) Educate: internalize and accelerate key insights about key changes in the business environment, which can illuminate new strategic directions;
b) Inspire: the frame and jump-start innovation and development, and “see” what’s possible with new eyes;
c) Create traction for action: create a shared understanding and a context so that new directions and actions can be implemented more effectively;
d) Transform: illuminate core assumptions and worldviews that help “reperceive” opportunities, and achieve breakthrough thinking and learning;
e) Build Capacity: increase awareness and understanding of cross-cultural communication, business issues and practices that help participants expand thinking and develop business opportunities and partnerships abroad;
f) Build and Align Teams: collectively open minds of top talent through “aha moments” and transformative experiences that connect teams within or across business groups for better collaboration and alignment around a shared vision for the future’;

See the below figure for how these benefits ultimately fit together to catalyze a number of tangible outcomes such as an improved Innovation pipeline, increased leadership capacity, higher social capital and greater market understanding.
