“What is knowledge? How is it embedded in an organization? What are knowledge workers? How can their best thinking be leveraged and applied? These are the questions organizations are (or should be!) struggling with today, and Leading Organizational Learning provides a rich sourcebook for finding answers. It’s filled with practical advice and excellent examples of how the knowledge and learning can be unleashed, the key to achieving organizational effectiveness today.”
—Sally Helgesen, author, The Web of Inclusion and Thriving in 24/7
“Wasn’t it the sage Lao Tzu who once said, ‘Those who know do not tell: those who tell do not know.’ The contributors to this book do know what we know, and do know what we do not know. Knowing they know, they provide a cornucopia of ideas about how to make knowledge management a reality, not an academic exercise. I recommend this book highly to anybody interested in creating ‘boundaryless’ knowledge-sharing organizations.”
—Manfred F.R. Kets de Vries, The Raoul de Vitry d’Avaucourt Chaired Clinical Professor in Leadership Development, and director, INSEAD Global Leadership Center, INSEAD
