Please, give me a tool to be a learning organization?

The concept of learning organization is fairly old, because scholars began to research this issue since the second part of the 20th century. However, for practice it is new theory. Today many organizations in developed countries try to be a learning organization and it is not just their desire, but life necessity. The environment of today’s business force organizations to find new ways to satisfy their customers and to be competitive and those organizations, which do not want to adapt, more likely will not survive. It is interesting how theory outstrip practice. Is it because what is done in theory does not work in practice, or because companies are not yet ready for ideas which theory suggest? There are so many ideas of scholars what is and how to be a learning organization, however business could hardly develop their ideas in practice. What is missing?

  1. A good question that you have here. In my opinion; if we can manage solve this problem of implementing the theory to the real life, we will be able to climb up the career steps faster than we can imagine. :)
    I think the most important “tool” is an ambitious leader to make it happen. A leader who can drive whole organisation to a place that is theorical using the people and tools together. A leader who is aware of the change needs to be happening all the time even after achieving learning organisation. A leader who can convince every soul in the organisation follow rganisational aim on learning.
    So I suppose; the missin link is A Leader!..

    These are my own opinions. No academic strength or reference for this. :)
