Darrel Rader, a technical skills and development leader in IBM Rational has built this amazingly short (only 6 slides!) but robust presentation on slideshare.net to help explain what learning circles are:
Now that you know what a learning circle is, did you know we've got five of them currently rolled out (with more to come)? Check out the great learning circles below, choose one, and dive in! These learning circles focus on aspects of the product and application lifecycle:
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.
Don't forget to keep and eye on our developerWorks Learning Circles page to see when new circles are added!

Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) Foundations- In this webinar, Dean Leffingwell describes how to Be Agile-Scale Up-Stay Lean and Have more Fun with the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), a publicly accessible knowledge base of proven Lean and Agile practices for enterprise-class software development. He approaches the problem from the perspectives of Lean thinking and principles of product development flow, illustrating how these core principles help deliver business results at scale, while keeping the development system (and the enterprise) lean and able to responsive rapidly to changing market needs. In addition, enterprises applying the framework have been getting better results, and since winning is more fun, Leffingwell will also describe some of the positive changes to corporate culture that occur when an enterprise is experiencing success with scaled Lean and Agile methods.
