Great explanation of how systems work

This book explained what I would have called "teamwork" very well. I became better able to express how people who are independent and highly talented can achieve better results if they understand that they are part of a system. I see how people can take independent action, but also recognize their responsibilities to a system which includes co-workers and supervisors. This was very helpful to me as a supervisor.

Abridged books are inadequate

I know better than to buy an abridged book but yet I did it again. You are not going to get the details you need to understand Learing Organizations. If you purchase this you will find your self on-line trying to find the details needed to make this learning complete.
