WORKSHOPS & KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE
The Dommel Valley Group was founded to facilitate the informal exchange of learning and experiences among L&D professionals from various high-tech companies in the Eindhoven/Dommel Valley region. In this spirit, the workshops are organized by L&D professionals to share their insights and practical experience with their colleagues. This non-commercial non-promotional approach is one of the defining characteristics of the Dommel Valley Symposium.
Interactive online video: learn from all the experts in and outside your company!Online video is gaining more and more attention as a means to share knowledge, skills and insights. Everyone has an HD camera and can share knowledge and experiences. Universities and colleges take mass lectures in large numbers. Experts from all over the world deliver their knowledge through TED. In short: we read less and watch more.
With the latest technology, interactive video offers many benefits:
- increases involvement and engagement
- generates relevant data about viewing behavior and use
- connect target groups with your organization, service, product, training program, etc.
- large savings in time and money of post-production on videos
This offers unprecedented opportunities for learning and development. Jeroen Krouwels takes you into the world of online video and demonstrates how online video shapes the new master-companion way of learning.

Apply systems thinking in your design to increase ownership in participant’s own developmentIn this active workshop, you will take an own case and explore different views on your case. Within ESI (by TNO), we work a lot with architects at our partner’s side. (system) Architects need to explore many views in order to understand the problem well and to see what solution space is suitable. To gain different perspectives, they explore various perspectives through views such as the customer view, application view and functional view. You can also apply this technique to your own working situation, by stepping in the shoes of the manager, learning professional and learner. At the end, we will combine these perspectives with your offerings or solutions: where does it match and where doesn’t it match?

Knowledge sharing for learning; business opportunity or risk?Philips field service engineers get hands-on training on healthcare systems at Best, Singapore or Cleveland. Because of the large portfolio hands-on training cannot be facilitated for outdated equipment, installation courses and very expensive tasks like the re-fill of MR-magnets with Helium. Also for the introduction program of new engineers we make use of local engineers to bring them up to speed before they come to a training location for the first time. The training department provides content for these courses but the knowledge sharing is locally organized. It turned out that well organized local service organizations benefit more from this approach than other service organizations. We also found cases in which knowledge sharing triggered unwanted behavior like submitting copied training assignments.

Collaborative learning: ASML and Dutch Royal Airforce
What can a governmental military organization and an innovative high tech commercial company learn from each other? This question leaded to a collaborative workgroup with professionals of ASML and the Duch Royal Airforce. Two companies with different cultures, values and processes but both searching for opportunities to share their knowledge. We’ve explored the strengths and development issues of our companies, so we can help each other to a higher standard. We found out that we have a lot in common, but there were three strengths about which we can share our knowledge. These are:
- Leadership Development
- Project Based work
- Internal Knowledge sharing
In this workshop the professionals of ASML and the Dutch Royal Airforce will share their experiences and lessons learned in their collaboration and you will experience for yourself how these companies learned about each other and you can learn together with them.

How to motivate others to start sharing
L&D professionals, we work with SME’s that are extremely knowledgeable, but that are also extremely busy, have other priorities and therefore – are not always willing or able to share knowledge for a broader audience.
In this high-pressure-cooker workshop you will team up with a small group of peers and (1) create a shortlist of possible reasons why SME’s are (A) not always able or (B) not always willing to share knowledge. After, we will find ways together on how to address these challenges and find a common ground for collaboration. The output of this workshop will be a compilation of the group work that will immediately be shared back with the group.

This transformation is bringing myriads of challenges. How to attract talent in a very competitive labor market? How to engage and keep inspiring people who came to work for Vanderlande? How to build competencies for employees that have to transition jobs fast?
