A business school as a learning organization
Brings up and examines the concept of a business school as a learning organization. Discusses the issue of change as a stimulus to learning - as businesses face new challenges, so, therefore, do business schools - hence the necessity to become a learning organization. Proposes the idea of the faculty member as the learner, as well as the integration of various modes of organizational learning: faculty group discipline-based learning, cross-disciplinary programme-based learning, and learning via a "partnership" with a major customer organization. Illustrates a working model for organizational learning comprising learning from research activities, workshops/ "discovery events", open teaching programmes as well as in-company tailored programmes. The total of this - when aggregated as it relates to all the major learning partnerships the school is involved in - leads to acquisition of knowledge by the faculty and the business school becomes a deliberate organizational learner. Concludes with emphasis on partnerships with multinational cutting-edge firms as the key to the most relevant real-life organizational learning.
