Why creating Learning Organizations is hard
According to Senge, transforming organizations into learning organizations is not easy, because managers have to surrender their traditional spheres of power and control to the people who are learning. Learners should experiment and be allowed to make mistakes. Also learning organizations require trust and management involvement which are frequently absent.

Creating Learning Organizations is not so Hard
Ceferino Dulay, Jr., Member
I think the word "surrender" is an overkill creating learning organizations does not have to be hard. I would rather think of the managers' role as interactive and supportive. If a manager is able to give clear objectives and organize the work in teams so that people learn from each other, learners are still able to experiment but with much less mistakes than when done individually. Managers don't give up control since project reviews and employee reviews are opportunities to share their views, experiences and directions with the team.
