L&D's BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) is to create, build, and maintain a Culture of Learning. The BHAG first came to be in an idea conceptualized in the book, “Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies” by James Collins and Jerry Porras. According to Collins and Porras, a BHAG is a long-term goal that changes the very nature of a business’ existence.
L&D's time for its BHAG is now. Our employees and teams are expected to be smarter, more agile and more innovative in everything they do. As such, the performance bar is high for L&D leaders and employee development programs because ultimately, an organization’s competitive advantage lies in its ability to leverage its collective employee knowledge and expertise.
As we focus together on building a culture of learning, we will change how we do business and how L&D is perceived. How are we working outside of our comfort zones? Together, we must develop an organizational culture that fosters learning not just today, but changes the way L&D influences business in 10, 20, 30 years.
