A LEARNING-BASED APPROACH TO ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE by Barry Sugarman – Five successful examples of a learning-based approach to org. change were studied. All were guided and supported through the MIT Center for Org.Learning . One central finding is that the goals for a successful learning-based change initiative are typically formulated in a way that combines two crucial elements: 1) meeting a critical business need, through 2) making fundamental process improvements. In each case there is a different solution to the seemingly-contradictory demands of work and learning, short-run business results and long-run process improvement. An important role is played by a "core learning team", a reflective leadership group that develops collaboratively a shared vision and strategy . The learning-based initiative typically progresses through three phases, centered around the pilot project. Pub. in Org. Dynamics, 2001
