I. What is a Learning Organization?

Peter Senge defines learning organizations as “organizations that encourage adaptive and generative learning, encouraging their employees to think outside the box and work in conjunction with other employees to find the best answer to any problem”.

His Five Disciplines of a learning organization outline how that can happen:

  1. Personal Mastery: Personal mastery is the development of the capacity to accomplish personal goals; learning organizations make this possible.
  2. Shared Vision: A shared vision is only possible in an environment of trust and collaboration instead of compliance to directives from on high.
  3. Mental Models: With a mental model, we understand how our deeply ingrained assumptions and generalizations affect our interactions and decisions.
  4. Team learning: When team members are “humble,” when they are willing to reflect and take into account other people’s views, suspending personal biases in order to work as a whole in a collaborative environment.
  5. Systems Thinking: Systems thinking addresses the whole and creates an understanding of how parts are interconnected
