The Fifth Discipline

The Fifth

Senge’s book focuses on group problem solving as a tool to engage organizations into embracing the mindset of learning organizations. According to Senge, the five disciplines of Personal Mastery, Mental Models, Shared Vision, Team Learning and Systems thinking form the basis of the core learning capabilities: fostering aspiration, developing reflective conversation, and understanding complexity.

Personal mastery – Focus, clarity and vision

Mental Models – uncovering the deep assumptions that influence our actions

Shared Vision – Moving beyond compliance to build genuine commitment

Team Learning – Using dialogue to enter into genuine thinking by suspending team assumptions

Systems Thinking – The discipline that binds all disciplines.
