  • Sound familiar? They’re the same benefits as Agile and Lean!
  • The Fifth Discipline by Peter Senge proposed five disciplines for creating a learning organization1.Systems thinking: Organizations are a system of interrelationships. To become more successful we need to analyze these relationships and find the problems in them. This will allow an organization to eliminate the obstacles to learning2. Personal mastery: An individual holds great importance in a learning organization. Continuous self-improvement holds as much important as commitment and work for the organization. Employees need to grow and work on their own goals.3.Mental models: This is the company culture and the diverse theories and mindsets that serve as a framework for the functioning of the organization. Learning organizations look for how these affect organizational development.4. Shared vision: A learning organization's employees all share a common vision. Personal goals must be in sync with the goals and vision of the organization.5. Team learning: The importance of dialogue and group discussion. For a team to learn, they must be in sync and reach agreement.

  • Shared vision:A learning organization's employees all share a common vision. Personal goals must be in sync with the goals and vision of the organization.
  • Team learning:The importance of dialogue and group discussion. For a team to learn, they must be in sync and reach agreement.
  • typical solutions: get training, get coachinglearning circle solution: seed knowledge at the grassroots through guidance contained in the learning circle, the workbooks, whatever people bring to the circletraining should be linked to business results so that it is easier for employees to connect the training with everyday issueslearning circle workbook can be co-created over time by the participants themselveshone in on solving the very real issues they face to make it practical
  • Learning circles can meet all the criteria above to create learning organization if it is the desire of the participantsI hypothesize that learning circles can replace traditional training in a learning organization
  • When momentum starts to wane, ask the group why. Perhaps it isn’t meeting their needs anymore. Don’t force it. Just wrap things up with gratitude for everyone’s contributions.
  • Have a set of SMART goals or something tangible that you’re producing as a groupThe workbook intends to bake this in by making people practice the Lean-Agile concepts they’re learning
