IBM Rational Learning Roadmaps: An Overview- Everyone's busy. Because you may not have time to browse all the resources and mingle with other learners in one sitting, learning circles help you create your own personal roadmaps, your pathways through the resources. You can check off items as you complete them, break away whenever you need to, and easily return anytime. No guesswork; no wasted time trying to recreate where you were. You can keep your progress confidential, of course. But you also have the option of easily sharing your progress with a mentor, your manager, or your team so you can all progress together.
