Learning is an essential process for attaining and maintaining sustainability at both the individual and business level. Establishing a learning organization requires a wholehearted and sustained endeavour. This text facilitates such an endeavour by providing both a coherent framework for analysis and practical models for action. It focuses on the choices organizations make about the design and implementation of specific learning mechanisms. The authors illustrate this "learning-by- design" approach through six detailed case studies, taken from different industries and national settings and focusing on different aspects of organizational learning. They then present an overall analysis of the cases, capturing the nature of the learning requirements, design dimensions and mechanisms and looking at how these link to each other and to company strategy, resources and performance. Various learning paradoxes are discussed, as well as issues that merit further study. Students of management and organizational studies, academics in these fields and executives should find this a useful resource for learning, reflection and practice. Table of Contents 1.
