In nature an ecosystem refers to the combination of a community of living things, the non-living elements that make up their environment, and the many ways in which those individual elements interact. In order for an ecosystem to thrive, the individual components must connect and support one another, balancing each other so that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. In the context of talent development, ecosystems also exist in the workplace. Understanding the structure and dependencies of an organizational ecosystem can help you build a better talent development strategy.
These slides were used during a session exploring the expanded scope of a learning and performance ecosystem, examining the numerous components that contribute to talent development. Attendees learn how these individual components can be combined into a single cohesive strategy, and leave with a new perspective on how to view talent development in their organization and the role learning professionals play in supporting it.
