What are the FIRST FEW STEPS that organizations take as they begin to
become a learning organization?

This is a question I have been thinking about for some time.

>From my experience and from what I have read and heard, there are probable
as many answers to this as there are organizations that have tried it. But
I thought it would be interesting to collect responses from many people on
this list who have been through the process -- just a skeleton outline of
those steps would give us some idea of the range of approaches taken at he
beginning of an LO transformation.

I believe that in any venture of this kind, those first few steps are
critically important. They help to make the abstract and often idealized
vision of the changes a little more understandable, especially to those
who have not been directly involved with steering the process. They have
enormous symbolic power as well as the importance they hold for simply
setting the course for the project.
