This past week, I have read and learnt a lot about the theory of organizational learning and what learning is to us as an individual and a society and also the importance of knowledge. For me,Learning is an important aspect of human life and we can't stop learning until we die. We experience learning in our daily lives which becomes useful to us as we progress in life. As individuals, we learn for self development and also to enhance our individual capabilities while organization on the other hand learn for continuous improvement ,innovation,Sustainability, transformation , to gain an edge amidst competition. Etc. A learning organisation can be seen as a dependent variable of individual learning . As an individual in our workplace, we are allowed to explore our knowledge and even build it and apply it in terms of innovation and for the growth of the organization. Individual learning and application of knowledge is vital to an organization that wants to learn because the employees are the heartbeat of the organization and they hold the key to giving the organization that edge..the key to transforming such an organization into a LO. So also is knowledge sharing that an employee has acquired as a result of learning also important.Like Fredrick Douglass once said, 'knowledge makes a man unfit to be a slave'. An organization who has knowledge would definitely stand out and always have the edge. Learning and application of knowledge are paramount to success in organizations ,our individual lives and also in the society as a whole. I would like to conclude with the popular saying if 'knowledge is expensive or not important, then try ignorance' .
