Organizations That are Open to Ongoing Change and Continous Improvement

: I agree with you on the "learning organization". I would also suggest an organization that is open to regular change may be one that considers change as "continuous improvement."
Take a look at the book, The Toyota Way to Continuous Improvement (Liker & Franz, 2011). Organizations need have to have a plan which encompasses a a sense of purpose (e.g., vision, mission, and goals). They also need effective leadership, which values ideas, innovation, and creativity, as well as engages people through recognition, rewards, and respect.
