Recommendation

Professor Edward D. Hess offers a clear, methodical synthesis of current research. If you are familiar with the fields of learning and thinking, or with learning organizations, you’ll recognize much of this intelligently compiled content. However, you’ll still learn from reading Hess’s clear, methodical overview, which works as a manual for applying today’s research to yourself and your firm. While focusing on core concepts and tools, Hess also offers usefully honest accounts of his personal experiences and the transformations people go through to become better learners. His case studies are fascinating. getAbstract recommends Hess’s work to teachers, managers, innovators and anyone interested in learning organizations.
