Major in Learing - Students learn to learn

Found this post on Google's Official Blog;
My belief in learning to learn and creating learning cultures' for organizational success is summed up very well in this post on the GoogleBlog.
Reminded us that excellence is now the price of admission -

"Management guru Peter Drucker noted that companies attracting the best knowledge workers will "secure the single biggest factor for competitive advantage." We and other forward-looking companies put a lot of effort into hiring such people. What are we looking for?At the highest level, we are looking for non-routine problem-solving skills. We expect applicants to be able to solve routine problems as a matter of course. After all, that's what most education is concerned with. But the non-routine problems offer the opportunity to create competitive advantage, and solving those problems requires creative thought and tenacity."

Create-Learning leads programs that teach just the topic - creating learning culture as well what Drucker calls Non-Routine Problem Solving.
What is non-routine problem solving???
We all know that in organizations problems arise and staff is trained and knowledgeable to solve these known "Hiccups" in the system.
Non-Standard is when the problem is not the norm - when the standard solution is not applicable. Is your team ready to trouble shoot and move beyond standard problem solving.
The non-standard problem requires your team members to have a strong process to return to and a system of cultural learning beyond of what is expected of them.
Move beyond the standard to the exceptional!
