Bio: Senge built on the term “learning organization” in his book The Fifth Discipline. It offered managers specific tools for understanding their organization’s learning problems and creating a road map for success. More than one million copies of the book have sold, and the Harvard Business Review touted it as one of the seminal management books of the past 75 years. Senge takes no prisoners with his approach: “Real commitment is rare in today’s organizations. Ninety percent of the time, what passes for commitment is compliance,” he writes. Senge lectures often and consults with businesses and government. His articles appear in leading academic and business journals.
