Aerospace giant Rockwell Collins typified the old-fashioned corporate approach to organizational learning: lackluster offerings in bland classroom settings, with little connection to the needs of employees or the goals of the company. Enter Cliff Purington and Chris Butler, who in three years transformed Rockwell into a full-fledged learning organization. With a strategy-based and technology-driven learning approach, a 400 percent increase in offerings, 24/7 access for 17,000 worldwide employees, and cost savings of $23 million, Rockwell is lauded and emulated by organizations all over the world.
