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.
