Organizational learning is not optional anymore if you want to stay ahead of your competition and survive in these disruptive times.
But, as in life, learning is not enough. What you do with the knowledge acquired is also important.
Organizational learning means also to be capable of collecting, generating, and acting upon what the company has learned.
12 Things to Learn from a Learning Organization
1. Your competitors, as a learning organization, are better at creating, acquiring, interpreting, transferring, and retaining knowledge.
Not only because their knowledge management system is better than yours, but because they use it better than you do.
2. They not only have the knowledge, but they also know what to do with it.
They, as a learning organization, know how to modify their behavior based on the new knowledge acquired. And they can do that very quickly.
