Get Lit: The Learning Organization: Part III — Creating a Context for Learning
This article was originally published on August 27, 2016, on LinkedIn by Jeff Sheldon. This is the last post in a three-part series about learning organizations. It speaks about the importance of context, culture and structures as core elements of a learning organization. We are sharing because we appreciated how clearly each were defined and the relationship between and among described and their importance to evaluative inquiry (remember, we are fans), which is a critical skill in a learning organization.
Here’s an excerpt:
..unless a system is changed it will continue to create the same results and improvements in organizations will prove disappointing if implemented in the same way with the same organizational structures. Within this system five components — culture, transformational leadership, communication, teamwork, and systems/structures are considered to be the elements of an organizational context necessary for both evaluative inquiry and in creating the learning organization (Shulha & Cousins, 1997).
