What are the Five Disciplines of Senge?
The five disciplines of Peter Sense is a model used to identify organizational 'learning disabilities' and use the "Five Disciplines" as antidotes to them.
The five components in the model from Senge are:
- Systems Thinking. The integrative (fifth) discipline that fuses the other 4 into a coherent body of theory and practice.
- Personal Mastery. People must regard their life and their work such as an artist would regard a work of art.
- Mental Models. Deeply ingrained assumptions or mental images that influence how we understand the world and how we take action.
- Building Shared Vision. If there is a genuine vision, people excel and learn, not because they have to, but because they want to.
- Team Learning. Team-members participate in true dialogue. They suspend their assumptions.
All these 5 disciplines must be employed in a never-ending quest to expand the capacity of the organization to create its future.
Learning Organizations are those organizations that can go beyond survival learning, to perform generative learning: a form of learning that enhances their capacity to create.
