The Principles of the Learning Organisation (Senge) by Mind Map: The Principles of the Learning Organisation (Senge)

1. Personal Mastery

1.1. the discipline where the business will only learn through individuals that learn.

1.1.1. Individual learning is acquired through staff training, development and continuous self-reflection.

2. Shared Vision

2.1. where all the people within a business are inspired to achieve its future goals.

2.1.1. When there is a genuine vision people excel and learn, not because they are told to, but because they want to.

3. Team Learning

3.1. the process of building and developing a team's capacity to create results that its members truly desire

3.1.1. Employees learn more quickly and the problem solving capacity of the business is improved when ideas can be shared openly and with trust.

4. Mental Models

4.1. the deeply ingrained assumptions and generalisation that influence how we understand the world and how we respond to it

4.1.1. this is about creating a business culture of openness, inquiry and trust where employees are encouraged to challenge old assumptions and mindsets in order to feel empowered to create something new and better than before.

5. Systems Thinking

5.1. the business has information systems that evaluate the business as a whole, rather than separate parts

5.1.1. This is the discipline that integrates the disciplines, fusing them into a coherent body of theory and practice. It keeps them from being separate gimmicks or the latest organizational change fads. Without a systemic orientation, there is no motivation to look at how the disciplines interrelate.
