What is Learning Organization Senge?

This theory was given by a well-known strategist Peter M. Senge. The theory defines what is called as a ‘Learning Organization’

Quoting Mr. Senge here, he describes learning organizations as:

    ‘…organizations where people continually expand their capacity to create the results they truly desire, where new and expansive patterns of thinking are nurtured, where collective aspiration is set free, and where people are continually learning to see the whole together.’

The rationale behind such lines of thinking for any organization is response to the market. In today’s scenario where the competitive environment is changing rapidly, only the companies that are flexible, adaptive and productive will survive. Being a learning organization is just a way to do so.

The theory calls for companies to work on these on five dimensions:

  • Systems thinking
  • Personal mastery
  • Mental models
  • Building shared vision
  • Team learning
