The Learning Organisation

What constitutes a Learning Organisation and if it is a romantic ideal is a matter of much debate. Different writers have sought to identify templates, or ideal forms, which organisations may then attempt to emulate and evolve into so they are able to respond to the various external and, to some degree, internal environmental pressures that characterise organisational life.  The key notion of those who subscribe to the relevance of being a Learning Organisation is recognition that individual and collective learning are critical to organisational survival and growth.  As such, this module is designed to help participants extend their knowledge and understanding of this concept and the extent to which it may be engendered within their own organisation, or perhaps decide that it is nothing more than rhetoric.  The module is open to participants in any type of organisational developmental role or who has an interest in this subject.
