Now Dr Senge moves from the philosophical to the practical by answering the first question all lovers of the learning organisation ask: What do they do on Monday morning? The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook is an intensely pragmatic guide. It shows how to create an organisation of learners where memories are brought to life, where collaboration is the life-blood of every endeavour, and where tough questions are fearlessly asked. The stories in this book show that businesses, schools, agencies and even communities can undo their learning disabilities and achieve superior performance. If ever a book gave meaning to the phrase hands-on, this is it. Senge and his four co-authors cover it all: • Reinventing relationships • Being loyal to the truth • Strategies for developing personal mastery • Building a shared vision • Systems thinking in an organisation • Designing a dialogue session • Strategies for team learning • Organisations as communities • Designing an organisations governing ideas This is a book that will have you creating a learning organisation from the very first chapter! As its name promises, The Fieldbook is designed to be referred to in meetings, planning sessions, during reflection or any time a conflict or challenge arises. Open it up anywhere and icons and cross-references will lead you from defining the problem to thinking about how to solve it. Mark up the pages. Write in the margins. Draw. Scribble. Daydream. As your field notes accumulate, you will create your own guide to mastering the disciplines of organisational learning. The Fieldbook will become the most referenced, quoted and used business book of the 1990s. If you can afford only one book to help you achieve organizational change, this is the book. —Herb Rau, Total Quality Manager, National Semiconductor Written for browsing and provides useable suggestions on almost every page. It complements Senges earlier, more theoretical work, with much more practical experience. —Tim Simpson, Managing Director, Arthur D Little
