Description

Organizational learning matters now more than ever. In today's hypercompetitive business environment, successful executives must be able to discover opportunities, face problems, and pursue innovative ideas - then turn those ideas into action throughout an organization. Based on both empirical research and practical experience, this book gives managers the tools to do just that. The authors assist practicing managers by providing several examples of successful and unsuccessful organizations and by describing the ways in which they have helped organizations improve learning capability in their consulting practices. Based on detailed case studies, a review of past literature, and data gleaned from a worldwide survey of companies. Organizational Learning Capability is an accessible and useful guide for managers competing in the information economy. It turns abstract ideas into practice, offers tools that managers can use, and presents a simple yet profound road map for making learning a reality.show more
