Learning Organization (Organizational Learning)

This method (or movement) focuses on enhancing organization systems and people to increase the organization's capacity for performance. It includes extensive use of principles of systems theory. In and of itself, this is not an overall comprehensive process assured to improve performance. Its effectiveness toward reaching overall results for the organization depends on how well the enhanced ability to learn applies to the organization.
