The Fifth Discipline by Peter M. Senge


My CIPD course at the moment centres on Knowledge Management and Organisational Learning. One of the gurus in this area is Senge and his book The Fifth Discipline. Senge sets out how he believes organisations can ‘learn’ and how it is what he calls Systems Thinking that is the crucial fifth discipline that ties it all together. The book is very interesting and puts forward some great ideas about how to help design learning interventions that stimulate thought and creativity. My version proclaimed 100 new pages and to be honest they weren’t really needed – it would have been a more enjoyable read without them.
