When person starts doing research of the particular subject, the first thing that he or she needs to do is to identify that subject. But is it always posible to provide only one definition?
My PMA is about company's transformation to a Learning Organization. So, consiquently, I tried first to understand what actually Learning Organization mean? The problem is that even the founder - Peter Senge gives 12 defenitions to LO! He writes that LO is the place "where people create the results they desire....., that creates its own future...., that practices system thinking...., that is flexible, receptive/adaptive to change...", finally, he makes the definition even more vague by telling that LO is the place "that comprises five disciplines".
I tried to combine all his thoughts and find my own definition, just to understand what LO is. Unfortunatelly, all my attempts have failed. But in the end I realised that sometimes we try to provide definition to almost everything so hard, that we deprive ourselves the opportunity to think more globally and dynamicly! May be sometimes we don't need the clear definition..... and may be it is better to find your own definition in the end?
My own definition of LO (how I understand it): a business excellence phylosophy through people.
