A book related to CBE assignment: " The Fifth Discipline

As I am doing CBE PMA, I found a book very useful, now I am reading it which is called the <The Fifth Discipline>, written by Peter Senge. Nowadays, quite a few enterprises are using theories from "The Fifth Discipline" to establish their learning organization.

<The Fifth Discipline> has set a firm foundation of studying on L.O., after which, a new wave of transformation towards L.O. has been set off. It developed wide range of interests from people and make them to study and practice on it.

The reason of publication of this book is because Senge saw that excellent western enterprises (most of western enterprise are more advanced) step into a new stage after experienced rapid development. The concept is about taking full consideration on problem of how to improve organizational competitiveness, especially recognizes that the recent management systems are nice and strict, but lack of flexibility. This is because the most important factor in the organization that potential of human capital has not been fully developed. Therefore organization trends of culture change and transformation towards L.O. come into being.

<The Fifth Discipline> treats human capital as main resource of productivity. It requires development and nurturing on human resources in order to mobilize the enthusiasm and initiative of employees, to help to align individuals and the organization. It is worthy to have a read.
