As a flock of sheep overcome their anxieties and complacency to build a culture for learning, the contributions of each individual are utilized in strikingly new and productive ways. Outlearning the Wolves: Surviving and Thriving in a Learning Organization simply and powerfully communicates how organizations can develop the capacity to learn.
DescriptionBy David Hutchens.
Now the fourth edition of the original management classic features vivid, full-color illustrations! Find out why Robert Fritz calls this fable "a true classic" that demonstrates how "a good story can be one of the best sources of profound change." Available in more than a dozen languages, Outlearning the Wolves continues to find new audiences and win the hearts of those who embrace its lessons. Yet, it is fair to say that the central message of this deceptively simple tale is almost as radical today as it was when it first published nearly two decades ago. As Fritz observes, it is still the rare organization that appreciates the insight that the sheep in the story discover: "Individual learning, good as it is, does not necessarily translate into organizational learning. The learning must become collective." That is why this book continues to be such an important resource for innovators determined to confront the wolves of complacency in their organizations by stimulating people's natural desire to creatively improve their results--together.
