Senge's best-selling The Fifth Discipline led Business Week to dub him the "new guru" of the corporate world; here he offers executives a step-by-step guide to building "learning organizations" of their own.

Library Journal

Senge promoted the learning organization and introduced systems-thinking in The Fifth Discipline (Doubleday, 1990). This sequel is a quantum leap, treating management as an empirical science. Designed as a workbook, a companion, and a source of exercises and techniques for the continuing education of its readers, this collection of notes, reflections, and exercises "from the field" comprises 146 pieces of writing by 70 authors. The offerings can be read in any order; browsing is aided by handy margin icons. Libraries may purchase copies for their business collection shelves, but one gets the impression that this work is primarily targeted to a defined audience, namely, the devotees of Senge's previous work. Recommended for public libraries with substantial business holdings.-Randy Abbott, Univ. of Evansville Libs., Ind.
