  • 1. Organisational Learning How do you create an effective organisation that learns?
  • 2. What makes a team work? Why it is important to sustainability! Co-operation and collaboration
  • 3. Learning as a Process
  • 4. Learning Organisations
    • "A Learning Organisation is one in which people at all levels, individuals and collectively, are continually increasing their capacity to produce results they really care about.“
    • An organisation that learns and encourages learning among its people. It promotes exchange of information between employees hence creating a more knowledgable workforce. This produces a very flexible organisation where people will accept and adapt to new ideas and changes through a shared vision.

  • 5. A company that needs to learn…
    • Your employees seem unmotivated or uninterested in their work?
    • Does your workforce lack the skill and knowledge to adjust to new jobs?
    • You seem to be the only one to come up with all the ideas?
    • And does your workforce simply follow orders ?
    • your teams argue constantly and lack real productivity ?
    • Or lack communication between each other?
    • And when the "guru" is off do things get put on hold ?
    • Are you always the last to hear about problem s?
    • Or worst still the first to hear about customer complaints ?
    • And do the same problems occur over and over?
  • 6.  
  • 7. Five Disciplines
    • Systems thinking
      • Systems theory’s ability to comprehend and address the whole, and to examine the interrelationship between the parts provides.
    • Personal mastery
      • ‘ Organizations learn only through individuals who learn. Individual learning does not guarantee organizational learning. But without it no organizational learning occurs’

  • 8. The other three!
    • Mental models
      • These are ‘deeply ingrained assumptions, generalizations, or even pictures and images that influence how we understand the world and how we take action’.
    • Building shared vision
      • ‘ The capacity to hold a share picture of the future we seek to create’.
    • Team learning
      • Such learning is viewed as ‘the process of aligning and developing the capacities of a team to create the results its members truly desire’.

  • 10. Reflect
    • What do you personally look like in a sustainable future?
    • What structure would your business have in a sustainable future? Hierarchical or lateral?
    • What would your employees look in a sustainable future?
    • The purpose is to move away from the same thinking that created the problems.
    • “ No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” Albert Einstein
