About this item
Completely Updated and Revised
This revised edition of Peter Senges bestselling classic, The Fifth Discipline, is based on fifteen years of experience in putting the books ideas into practice. As Senge makes clear, in the long run the only sustainable competitive advantage is your organizations 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 peoples 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 organizationsones 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.
The updated and revised Currency edition of this business classic contains over one hundred pages of new material based on interviews with dozens of practitioners at companies like BP, Unilever, Intel, Ford, HP, Saudi Aramco, and organizations like Roca, Oxfam, and The World Bank. It features a new Foreword about the success Peter Senge has achieved with learning organizations since the books inception, as well as new chapters on Impetus (getting started), Strategies, Leaders New Work, Systems Citizens, and Frontiers for the Future.
Mastering the disciplines Senge outlines in the book will:
Reignite the spark of genuine learning driven by people focused on what truly matters to them
Bridge teamwork into macro-creativity
Free you of confining assumptions and mindsets
Teach you to see the forest and the trees
End the struggle between work and personal time
