This book provides an actionable blueprint that makes use of science to build a leading-edge learning organization. More specifically, it explains how one can become a better and faster learner and how to create an organization that is more adaptable and learns better and faster than the competition. It thus examines the process of learning from an individual and an organizational standpoint. From an individual perspective, it considers the cognitive, emotional, motivational, attitudinal, and behavioral factors that promote better learning. Organizationally, it looks at the kinds of structures, culture, leadership, employee learning behaviors, and human resource policies that are necessary to create an environment that fosters critical and innovative thinking, learning conversations, and collaboration. The book takes an indepth look at three exemplary learning organizations and the lessons they offer: Bridgewater Associates LP, Intuit Inc., and United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS).

Keywords:   science, learning organization, learning, leadership, learning behavior, human resource policies, Bridgewater Associates LP, Intuit Inc., United Parcel Service Inc.
