Summary of Five Disciplines

Senge is much more than a lonely or groupy HR developer. His most essential idea of learning is that "each goal has to do with how we think, what we truly want, and how we interact and learn with one another" (Senge, 1990, p.11).
Human Resource Development (HRD) can play an important role in transforming traditional firms to learning organizations. HRD is close to the idea of communities of practice using several multilevel strategies, seeing the individuals as the most precious resource in their organizations.
However, it's crucial to make all people involved understand that purpose of continuously learning!
