Work, Connect and Learn is a collaborative work and learning initiative that was created and delivered at Coca-Cola Amatil (CCA) over five years ago and was very progressive at the time.  It is an approach that is still highly relevant in 2020 as learning professionals seek to support people to connect, work and learn in a digital environment.  It serves as an example of how knowledge sharing can be used to reduce the risk of dependency on a small number of experts or ‘go to’ people in an organisation.  It also illustrates how social learning can be aligned to business strategy and goals.
