Are you a learning organization?
Being a Learning Organization involves considerable commitment from everyone in the organization, and like most things it has to be initiated at the top. What a Learning Organization involves could take up a whole manual, and we would be happy to share the same with you if you so wish through a personal interaction. However, in short a learning organization involves the following:
  • Shared knowledge base - Building a shared knowledge base and using it enabling it effectively through the organization
  • Continuous learning - Continuous learning to ensure that the rate of change within the organization exceeds the rate of change in the market
  • Questioning - Challenging a particular approach or methodology, to ensure that the best course is taken
  • Understanding - Recognizing a situation and drawing on knowledge to find solutions to problems arising out of it
  • Systems thinking - Recognizing systems and rules & abandoning them when they cease to work for more creative thinking that goes beyond those rules and systems
  • Knowing when to learn - This includes recognizing when you have learned something
