In the long run, the only sustainable source of competitive advantage is your organisation's ability to learn faster than its competitors.
Dr Peter Senge is the founding chairperson of the Society for Organisational Learning and a senior lecturer at MIT. He has lectured extensively throughout the world, translating the abstract ideas of system theory into tools for better understanding of economic and organisational change. The Journal of Business Strategy named Dr Senge as one of the 24 people who had the greatest influence on business strategy over the last 100 years.
Senge explains why the learning organization matters, provides an unvarnished summary of his management principals, offers some basic tools for practicing it, and shows what it's like to operate under this system. The book's concepts remain stimulating and relevant as ever. Amazon.com
