The notion of the learning organization--popularized by management thinkers and extolled by leaders of today's most progressive companies--is finally made practical for modern managers in Working Wisdom. Robert Aubrey and Paul M.

They also guide leaders through the organizational initiatives essential to supporting the new role for managers, demonstratating how to establish learning leadership, leverage the wisdom of middle managers, build learning networks, use technology, tackle public policy issues, and create learning alliances.
