Publisher's Summary

Peter Senge's national best seller, The Fifth Discipline, revolutionized the practice of management by introducing the theory of learning organizations. Now Dr. Senge moves from the philosophical to the practical by answering the first question all lovers of the learning organization ask: What do they do on Monday morning?The Fieldbook is an intensely pragmatic guide. It shows how to create an organization of learners where memories are brought to life, where collaboration is the lifeblood of every endeavor, and where the tough questions are fearlessly asked. The stories here show that companies, businesses, schools, agencies, and even communities can undo their "learning disabilities" and achieve superior performance. If ever a work gave meaning to the phrase hands-on, this is it. Senge and his four co-authors cover it all including: reinventing relationships, being loyal to the truth, building a shared vision, organizations as communities, and designing an organization's governing ideas.

This will help you to be a systems thinker, and there is a great chance that you need to think more systems than you are. I know I do.

Good review/overview

The systems thinking concepts put forward in the Fifth Discipline books is profound. It would be very hard to understand the concepts from an audio book alone. However, if you want a review after reading the book or an overview prior to spending time with the concepts the audio book is helpful.
