Summary

New breakthrough thinking in organizational learning, leadership, and change Continuous improvement, understanding complex systems, and promoting innovation are all part of the landscape of learning challenges todays companies face. Amy Edmondson shows that organizations thrive, or fail to thrive, based on how well the small groups within those organizations work.
