Replying to LO6789 --

Tony DiBella says:

......all organizations have embedded learning processes. Consequently,
for me the notion of the "learning organization" makes little sense except
as a redundancy.

Tony, thank you very much for that statement. I too have long agonized
over that term.


=== End Quotes ===

I agree that the terminology is confusing. What Senge is referring to as
LO is considerably more than what is meant by the conventional definitions
of the two words "learning" and "organization". Different words might
convey the differences more accurately, or at least with less confusion.
