A Brief Analysis of Learning Organization Practice from the Perspective of the Fifth Discipline Model Theories—A Case Study of Jatco (Guangzhou)
Abstract: Since the 1970s and 1980s, learning organizations have attracted the attention of academic circles and became one of the popular themes of academic research. Based on the theoretical perspective of the Peter M. Senge’s five disciplines models, this paper conducts research on an enterprise with Jatco (Guangzhou), which has a unique talent management system and successfully generates a learning organization. This study analyzes the mystery of the successful construction of learning organizations from the five Disciplines of Personal Mastery, Improving Mental Models, Building Shared Vision, Team Learning, and Systems Thinking. We aim to explore the management method of learning organizations by using the classical learning organization theory with the enterprise case practice, and provide some reference and guidance for the enterprise practice of learning organizations.
