Why Organizations Don’t Learn

Available as a Seminar

Organizational learning is crucial to competitiveness but hard to sustain.

We draw on a decade of research across a range of industries.

Consider Toyota, renowned for continuous improvement. It lost sight of that goal in its push to become the world’s largest automaker—and had to recall 9 million vehicles as a result.

Let’s look at why it’s so hard to become and remain a “learning organization”—and how companies can do better.

Four deeply held biases are at the heart of the struggle:

  • toward success
  • action
  • fitting in
  • and experts

They give rise to a host of behaviors that interfere with learning.

But leaders who recognize the biases can use concrete tactics to combat them.

We explore those tactics as we look at each bias.
