After so many years of reading on leadership and learning organizations here am I really surprised about this extraordinary book. Being so interested in these themes, Peter Senge's was, of course, on my wish list for a while... quite sorry I haven't read it before.
Great book and great content a must have for any development and learning practitioner or HR looking at creating a learning organisation. Peter backs up his arguments with plenty of examples and it's presented in such a way that it would fit any organisation. 500 pages that I will no doubt keep coming back to.
This masterpiece latest edition by Peter Senge is a classic but also a futuristic guide to solving any problem by applying a Systems Thinking approach. What is Systems Thinking? Get the book (even if it's from your local library) and DISCOVER this common sense but highly sophisticated method of looking at problems from the outside not the inside. Senge also brings forward management wisdom in transforming organisations from a bureaucratic or tick box mentality to what the calls the LEARNING ORGANISATION. This alone is worth the time to read and ingest a new (for many) way of developing a culture of cooperation, creativity and long term sustainability.
A fantastatic book which explaines the principles of learning organisation and help you decide whether or not your organisation is a learning one and what needs to be done to make it an effective and constructive learning organisation. In my opinion, you must read this book if you want to promote learning in your workplace. Ir promotes dialogue, learning together, etc.
Most accessible book I've read on Systems Thinking so far. Good examples and narratives, generally pretty OK to relate to. Can be a little evangelical and idealistic in places but then most books of this type tend to be. The fundamentals are there though so it is certainly worth a read for anyone wanting to know more about Systems Thinking.
