The history of managing is littered with the remains of yesterday's right answers - Scientific Management, Theories X & Y, Blake's Grid, MBO, Quality Circles, the search for excellence, and so on. Without doubt each of these methods contains good ideas, but they are ideas sold as right answers. The emphasis of The "learning company" is not upon producing "right answers" but providing a basis for improving managerial action of learning and developing. Pedler, Burgoyne and Boydell believe that there is a massive underdeveloped potential in our organizations which is waiting to be released.

Whilst illustrating that there is no set path to follow the vision of the "learning company", this book offers a starting point with practical pointers where you can take steps for developing this type of organization.
