Summary The Fifth Discipline is based on fifteen years of experience in putting the bookʹs ideas into practice. As Senge makes clear, in the long run the only sustainable competitive advantage is your organizationʹs ability to learn faster than the competition. The leadership stories in the book demonstrate the many ways that the core ideas in The Fifth Discipline, many of which seemed radical when first published in 1990, have become deeply integrated into peopleʹs ways of seeing the world and their managerial practices. In The Fifth Discipline, Senge describes how companies can rid themselves of the learning "disabilities" that threaten their productivity and success by adopting the strategies of learning organizations -- ones in which new and expansive patterns of thinking are nurtured, collective aspiration is set free, and people are continually learning how to create results they truly desire
This pragmatic guide shows how to create an organization of learners. The stories in this book show that businesses, schools, agencies and even communities can undo their "learning disabilities" and achieve superior performance
