Academic Training Vs Practitioner Mentoring

One might think that the ultimate way to empower an organization is to create a well defined training department which comprise of academically brilliant trainers along with various other factors. We bet to differ. Training is important and inevitable. But the conventional way of arranging class rooms and conducting theory sessions is not going to help you at all. Of course theory is important. But if we just focus on the theoretical aspects of each of our tasks, we are forcing ourselves to be confined with impractical expectations. Knowledge Management has grown to a level where codification of knowledge is identified as just one method to capture and propagate knowledge. Working knowledge of practitioners are by far the greatest source of practical wisdom in any industry which we refer. It is hence important to acknowledge practitioner based training as an important activity along with any theory based sessions in our knowledge management strategy.
