I read "The Systems Thinker" article in the Dec. 1995/Jan. 1996 issue
titled "Charting a Corporate Learning Strategy" by Marilyn Darling and
Gregory Hennessy.

In it, they mention the Organizational Learning Inventory as a tool to
help managers identify specific actions that can promote org. learning in
their company. They say this tool helps answer the questions:

1. What can we do to improve our org's ability to learn?
2. How can we create an integrated strategy for learning?
3. And how can we assess how well that strategy is working?

Has anyone out there used this instrument, or one like it, with a team of
managers as they suggest? And if so, what was the outcome? The Harvard
Law School Library was one org. that used it with good results.
