Why should the structure of a learning organization look anything
different than a non-learning organization?

If in fact Senge suggests that a learning organization should alter
its structure or add structure to support learning (like a an HR
training center) then one should be asking, "Is this new structure
and expenditure subject to the same NPV requirements as other
investmetns in corporate infrastructure."

It would be a mistake to assume or recommend that a new structure is
required because an organization adopts a learning culture.
