Speed Read: Building a Learning Organisation

For the Learning function to remain relevant in a world of constant organisational change, it needs to shift focus towards developing the organisation as a whole and not just the individuals within the business. This Speed Read explores the concept of a learning organisation and its relevance in today's business context:

  • agility and the learning organisation
  • the concept of the learning organisation
  • the 'hardware' and 'software' of a learning organisation
  • key questions to consider on a journey to building a learning organisation.
