    Loved it. Great application of the theories and principles discussed in the primary text. I actually liked it better than the Fifth Discipline. It’s a real value add. Good stuff.

    The companion to The Fifth Discipline - the parent book lays out the principles and provides some examples, and this work goes further in helping readers put the concepts to practical use. Highly recommended for anyone who is working to improve the functioning of any human system.

    Recommended by our leadership consultant, this is a classic text and full of useful case studies and models. Quite specialised and technical in parts, but if you are interested in the idea of being a learning organisation, it is a good place to start.

    This is a complementary book to "The Fifth Discipline". The aim of the book was to provide toools to the first book, but I found it a bit weak & not that practical.

    This is one of my "go to" books when it comes to organisation performance and improvement. Although the book has been around for a long time, the lessons remain as valid today as ever.

    Very interesting book which gives some excellent insights about how to build a successfully organisation by building a learning organisation. one of the key tools that i took away from the book was the theory (not new by any means) around systems thinking. the ability to view an action in its holistic sense with an awareness of the interdependencies that act has with others and what the ramifications are. it gives you some very practical insights into improving your consulting skills but i guess Very interesting book which gives some excellent insights about how to build a successfully organisation by building a learning organisation. one of the key tools that i took away from the book was the theory (not new by any means) around systems thinking. the ability to view an action in its holistic sense with an awareness of the interdependencies that act has with others and what the ramifications are. it gives you some very practical insights into improving your consulting skills but i guess some of the tools shown can be equally well applied in real life to relationships as well. Senge calls systems thiking the 5th discipline which intergrates these 4: 1."Personal mastery is a discipline of continually clarifying and deepening our personal vision, of focusing our energies, of developing patience, and of seeing reality objectively." 2."Mental models are deeply ingrained assumptions, generalizations, or even pictures of images that influence how we understand the world and how we take action." 3."Building shared vision a practice of unearthing shared pictures of the future that foster genuine commitment and enrollment rather than compliance." 4."Team learning starts with dialogue, the capacity of members of a team to suspend assumptions and enter into genuine thinking together."

    I remember when I got out of my undergraduate studies in the early 1990s the buzzword “Learning Organization” was all in fashion. At the time there were a lot of discussions around making our organization a learning organization to compete with the Japanese. We didn't have a good understanding of what was happening with the Japanese invasion, so we played whack-a-mole trying different things to see what worked. Within a couple of years “Learning Organization” was not talked about much other than I remember when I got out of my undergraduate studies in the early 1990s the buzzword “Learning Organization” was all in fashion.

Within a couple of years “Learning Organization” was not talked about much other than by a few, die-hard zealots. This book tries, at times not too successfully, to separate the practice from the theory of building a Learning Organization. The audiobook brings you back to the days of “books on cassette.” The chapters are long and seem to cut off in weird places. Although the book is written to create a Learning Organization, I think that it can be equally valid as a book for a Learning Individual. The various disciplines are useful for an organization of 10,000 or an organization of 1.

    Even though this book is rather dated, I refer to it frequently. Peter Senge is the father of learning communities and this book contains a wealth of information about how effective learning organizations function. From the Ladder of Inferences, to dealing effectively with conflict and change, this book is a treasure.

    Most of the themes discussed are not his own. He does write it so that it can more easily be read by a larger audience. In general found it to be the Dr Phil version of management 101. Lots of generalities without much real substance. Heard a lot of good things about it prior to reading it, but can't say I agree with them.

    One of the good things about the books written by academic people is that they focus on the principle and simplify the discussion. This book is very well written for organizations. However it also appears to be on the abstract side, maybe it can be improved a little bit by adding more concrete case studies.

    I storngly recommend this book to all HR and OD prationers. Such a useful book. Talks about tools and techniques that we can use while working on developing and building organizations. I particularly liked the "Lefthand Column Exercise.

    My copy is highlighted, dog-eared and post-it noted. Used it as a text and some of my former students have told me they still use it as a reference also. Probably the most useful book on management I've ever read.

    I read this for my change management class. It it s a good reference book. It is not a book that you would voluntarily sit down and just read; but it is one of those books that is full of good information and deserves shelf space on any managers personal reference library.

    Lots of interesting content, including exercises and templates; the Kindle edition makes it difficult to understand the structure of the book. I would actually recommend this book over the original simply because it contains many more practical aspects to the 5 disciplines.

    Methods on cultivating and sustaining a "learning" organization. In my opinion, it's more of a resource that you absorb over time rather than in a short period.

    A must for every educator. I have read this a hundred times and it is filled with dog ears, highlights and post-its for reference.

    Practical outworking of the Fifth Discipline. This will help you to be a systems thinker, and there is a great chance that you need to think more systems than you are. I know I do.
