Replying to LO6998 --

>part of my study requires that I take a critical view of
>learning organizations. Some questions are as follows:
>Are learning organizations actually learning? Or are we transferring
>knowledge and communicating better? How do we know Learning Organizations
>are not fads? Can we ever become a Learning Organization? Is it just a
>philosophy? Can we measure learning and link it to organizational
>success? How?

Other questions you might ask are
* how would you know an org. was a learning org.?
* how does LO develop from and build on previous 'fads'?
* what makes Lo any more sustainable?
* where is LO leading us?
* can organizational success be achieved without learning?
* how are we defining organizational success?
* what distinguishes learning from communications?
