There is a game I have been playing with people around the world. It’s a very simple game called “word association”. I write up some phrases and then people tell me what comes into their heads. The phrases are “training & development”, “knowledge management”. “organizational learning” and “performance improvement”. The results from groups in Christchurch (NZ), Wellington (NZ), Melbourne (Aus), Chicago (US) and London (UK) are available below.
Sadly you get no sense of the splendour of these cities and the uniqueness of the people in them, you just get pictures of white boards or flipchart paper. Have a browse. My thoughts will follow in the next post.
