Sculpting the Learning Organization

From their unique perspective as adult educators experienced in the work of organizational change, the authors show both human resource professionals, as well as front line managers and others, how people learn and how to support that learning. They show how individual learning acts as a catalyst for group and organizational learning in such key areas as employee involvement, self-directed teams, and the balance of work and home life. Eighteen illustrative case vignettes feature companies such as AT&T, IBM, and Esso Petroleum.
