What makes top organizations successful? How are they able to compete in a rapidly changing, highly competitive, increasingly global environment? Today's most successful companies are learning organizations. Learning organizations are better able to compete because they are more able to innovate, respond quickly to change and attract, retain, engage and motivate the best employees. In a learning organization, everyone from the top down continually seeks to become better. The organizational culture encourages learning at all levels and works to translate that learning into action.
