Senge’s Learning Organisation
Peter Senge states that a Learning Organisation is a group of people working together collectively to enhance their capacities to create results they really care about. Senge popularised the concept of the learning organisation through his book The Fifth Discipline. In this video we look at how adopting the principles behind the Learning Organisation we can:
- Improve innovation, increase the pace of change and remain competitive
- Respond quickly to external pressures and customers needs
- Improve quality of outputs at all levels and our brand image
Watch the video and feel free to request the templates firstname.lastname@example.org. I am happy to share.
1. Recognise the principles of Senge’s Learning Organisation and the five disciplines: Systems Thinking, Personal Mastery, Shared Vision Mental Models and Team Learning.
2. Consider your businesses in each of the five disciplines using the template to plot your strength and weaknesses
3. Research and plan how you might create activities to embed a Learning Organisation culture
4. Using the latest Investors in People model, assess your current culture on a scale of 1-4 where 1 is developed, 2 is established, 3 is advanced and 4 is high performing in terms of how your business Leads, Supports and Improves
5. Create a development programme to support your business in becoming a learning organisation … Please note … a culture change won’t happen overnight!
Please do share your experiences with these models in the comments below. I am building a portfolio of small business case studies and would love to include examples of what has worked well for you.
