In this fresh and engaging introduction to the concept of a “Learning Organisation”, Stefan Fourie gives readers new perspectives on this elusive concept. The book explores the learning process within a uniquely South African context. Through the learning process, we learn to review our assumptions about how the organisation functions, and to look for ways to improve the organisation by improving work processes and enhancing services.

Practically, the book explores four perspectives, each with its own unique strategies to develop a learning organisation. The content includes:

• Four wrong perspectives
• First right perspective - Understanding the benefits of being a learning organisation
• Second right perspective - Seeing learning as a “process”
• Third right perspective - Capturing and sharing what has been learnt
• Fourth right perspective - Learning is meaningful)
• Trusting the learning process: What would an ideal SA learning organisation look like?

This book is for those who are in HR, OD, Learning and Development and line management. The book is grounded in a body of scientific knowledge and practice, but written in such a practical way that is possible for everyone to understand. The text is enhanced with case studies, summaries, illustrations, and a how-to contribution at the end.

Stefan Fourie is an Organisational and Learning Development practitioner and consultant who draws from two decades of experience within a variety of organisations, knowing first-hand the potential that the learning process holds. He has a PhD in Learning and Development.
