Completely Updated and Revised

This revised edition of Peter Senges bestselling classic, The Fifth Discipline, is based on fifteen years of experience in putting the books ideas into practice. As Senge makes clear, in the long run the only sustainable competitive advantage is your organizations ability to learn faster than the competition. The leadership stories in the book demonstrate the many ways that the core ideas in The Fifth Discipline, many of which seemed radical when first published in 1990, have become deeply integrated into peoples ways of seeing the world and their managerial practices.

In The Fifth Discipline, Senge describes how companies can rid themselves of the learning “disabilities” that threaten their productivity and success by adopting the strategies of learning organizationsones in which new and expansive patterns of thinking are nurtured, collective aspiration is set free, and people are continually learning how to create results they truly desire.

The updated and revised Currency edition of this business classic contains over one hundred pages of new material based on interviews with dozens of practitioners at companies like BP, Unilever, Intel, Ford, HP, Saudi Aramco, and organizations like Roca, Oxfam, and The World Bank. It features a new Foreword about the success Peter Senge has achieved with learning organizations since the books inception, as well as new chapters on Impetus (getting started), Strategies, Leaders New Work, Systems Citizens, and Frontiers for the Future.

Mastering the disciplines Senge outlines in the book will:

• Reignite the spark of genuine learning driven by people focused on what truly matters to them

• Bridge teamwork into macro-creativity

• Free you of confining assumptions and mindsets

• Teach you to see the forest and the trees

• End the struggle between work and personal time

Synopsis:

"The Fifth Discipline" has turned the principles of the learning organization into a movement of snowballing size and strength. The ability to respond to change was the crucial issue of the '90s, but management tools such as "reengineering" and "total quality" simply treat the symptoms. Adopted by Ford, AT&T, and others, here is a cure for the disease Senge calls "learning disabilities."

Synopsis:

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.
