Training for surprise

I have to agree with Harold Jarche:

In the network age learning is conversation. But aren’t training courses more like “exhibit halls”? They are prepared in advance checked for quality control and delivered with the best look & feel. Conversations are messier with ill-defined boundaries; just like work and just like life.

I can’t bear most training offerings, especially those with confident lists of what you will learn. I like training to allow for messiness and surprise. Organisations find that a bit scary.
