Teaching An Organization To Learn
MIT's Peter Senge Discusses Fostering Education and Change Within Communities and Organizations

Dr. Peter M. Senge is a faculty member of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Director of the Center for Organizational Learning at MIT's Sloan School of Management, a consortium of corporations who work together to advance methods and knowledge for building learning organizations. Senge's work centers on advancing knowledge through community/organizational development and enhancing the productivity of all employees through the dispersion of leadership throughout an organization. A respected author, Senge's titles include, "The Fifth Discipline: The Art and Practice of the Learning Organization," and "The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook: Strategies and Tools for Building a Learning Organization"(co-author). Senge is also a founding partner of Innovation Associates, a management consulting and training firm that helps organizations choose and create their future. To transform an organization into a learning organization Senge recruits the disciplines of personal mastery, shared vision, team learning, mental models and systems thinking. Senge's work has crossed over a wide range of institutions including health care, government, education and private business. Organizations that have benefited from Senge's practices include Ford, Federal Express, Motorola, AT&T, GS Technologies, Intel, EDS, Harley-Davidson, Philips and Royal/Dutch Shell.

Senge recently spoke with News for a Change Publisher Cathy Kramer about advancing communities and organizations through increased learning.
