The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook: Strategies and Tools For Building a Learning Organization
|Year Publish||1994 June|
Peter Senge's international bestseller, The Fifth Discipline, revolutionized the practice of management by introducing the theory of learning organizations. Now Dr Senge moves from the philosophical to the practical by answering the first question all lovers of the learning organization ask: What do they do on Monday morning?
The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook is an intensely pragmatic guide. It shows how to create an organization of learners where memories are brought to life, where collaboration is the life-blood of every endeavour, and where tough questions are fearlessly asked. The stories in this book show that businesses, schools, agencies and even communities can undo their 'learning disabilities' and achieve superior performance. If ever a book gave meaning to the phrase 'hands-on', this is it.
"The Fieldbook will become the most referenced, quoted and used business book of the 1990s. If you can afford only one book to help you achieve organizational change, this is the book." —Herb Rau, Total Quality Manager, National Semiconductor
"Written for browsing and provides useable suggestions on almost every page. It complements Senge's earlier, more theoretical work, with much more practical experience." —Tim Simpson, Managing Director, Arthur D Little
