Publisher Comments:

An MIT Professor's pathbreaking book on building "learning organizations" — corporations that overcome inherent obstacles to learning and develop dynamic ways to pinpoint the threats that face them and to recognize new opportunities. Not only is the learning organization a new source of competitive advantage, it also offers a marvelously empowering approach to work, one which promises that, as Archimedes put it, "with a lever long enough... single-handed I can move the world."

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [391]-409) and index.

Ephraim, May 30, 2007 (view all comments by Ephraim)
"The Fifth Discipline" lays out a holistic view of corporations/organizations that fundementally recognizes the important role of meaning and connection in the work world. The book provides brilliant perspectives from which to view business problems, change goals, and the meaningful role that work and leadership can play in individuals' lives. It is one of the top 5 books I've read that has had a deep and lasting impact on how I think and examine the world and life around me.
