The learning organisation (LO) is often seen as an aspiration rather than a practical proposition. Everybody wants to become one, but few know how to go do it. There are no precise principles to use as a guide to become a LO, as each organisation is unique. However, there are a few things you can do to progress to a LO such as team-based structures, participative management style, lifelong learning and continuous improvement, action learning and knowledge management (KM). The main reason for the LO is that organisations must learn faster than their competitors to survive.
