I would like to build a learning organisation because it presents the hope
that organisations need not rely on traditional concepts of management
which are no longer effective nor efficient in dealing with the changing
work organisations/environment. Also learning organisations promotes
goodwill in the form of cooperation rather than competition that has led
to the breeding of a organisational illness of various forms and degree.
There is potential for this concept to radicalise the whole gamut of
management and if it does, there is opportunity for true leaders to be
leaders and the emerging and recognition of individual talents which has
been for years subject to oppression by organisational systems, forcing
conformity instead of creativity.
