Developing Democracy at Work.
The concept of the Learning Organisation has become one of the most written and talked about management practices. As our world becomes more complex and uncertain it is crucial for both individuals and organisations to learn regularly and rigorously from their work to enable them to adapt rapidly, capably and continuously to their changing environments - giving them a much higher chance of surviving and developing.
In this fully revised edition of his practical and provocative book, Bob Garratt, one of the world's leading experts in management education, offers a fresh perspective on the way organisations work. In the knowledge economy people are the key to organisation learning and need to be much more involved in the critical debate within organisations. The very nature of relationships between employers and employees, owners and their against, needs to be re-evaluated.
As well as considering the work of other business writers, Garratt employs a wide range of experimental models and graphic illustrations to clearly demonstrate his theories. This exciting and informative book is a challenge to all directors, management educators and the business community at large.
