Humans learn automatically. But we learn more quickly and effectively when we impose a discipline on ourselves — when there's some thread, frame, or rhythm to our lives. For organizational learning to be more than the sum of the learning of individuals, a company needs that rhythm — created by the dynamic interaction between top management and the performers across the organization. Everybody makes music, but there's direction and discipline with the art — which results in a world-changing innovation.
