In this article, the writer discusses Peter Senge's book "The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook: Strategies and Tools for Building A Learning Organization". The writer notes that this is an excellent guide for building a learning organization in one's workplace. The writer is currently working in the project management department at Caterpillar, a leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines and industrial gas turbines and believes that this book has many ideas that could contribute to the growth of this organization. This paper focuses on team learning, as it is an area from which the writer believes that the project management team could greatly benefit. The writer concludes that team learning involves the promotion of team skills and development so that the team's collaborative ability is greater than the sum of the individuals' talents.
From the Paper:"People working in a learning organization typically have many benefits that people in other fields may not have. They usually are fully engaged in their work and share a vision with their team members. In a learning organization, goals are usually clear and the work is usually satisfying. In this type of environment, team members are usually willing to learn new things and have a commitment to doing their jobs well.
While learning is a natural process, the process of learning is very complex. Learning incorporates three activities: thinking, communicating and cooperating. When our capacities to think, communicate and cooperate are improved upon, so is our ability to learn. In this light, a learning organization is one that enhances and promotes these activities for its employees and the organization as a whole. "
