Ten Steps to a Learning Organization.
Kline, Peter; Saunders, Bernard
This guide provides a 10-step process for building a learning organization. It shows any organization how to develop and sustain an environment favorable to learning at every level, to reawaken and stimulate the power of learning in all members of the organization, and to harness the new learning that was generated to produce the maximum benefit for the organization. An introduction describes the development of the process and sets forth the 16 principles that underlie the changes in attitude and behavior that characterize an emergent learning organization. The next 10 chapters discuss the steps in the process: assess the learning culture, promote the positive, make the workplace safe for thinking, reward risk-taking, help people become resources for each other, put learning power to work, map out the vision, bring the vision to life, connect the systems, and get the show on the road. The chapters describe a project that illustrates what integrative learning could do to improve efficiency in the workplace. The book also includes the following: checklists, guidelines, and other assessment instruments; activities; and ways to evaluate progress. Endnotes are appended. (YLB)
