Not many of us work in an organisation where every thing is perfect.
Most of us are just about managing despite deficiencies in management, organisation, Processes, IT systems, Data, training etc.
The problem is that initiatives to change each of these may mean a disruptive project with costly consultants.
The principle of “Continuous Improvement” recognises that change can be made by small steps often innovative or obvious steps based on lessons learnt, sharing good practice.
Change doesn’t always have to be driven by top management.
A Learning Organisation will establish mechanisms to collect good ideas or analyse where things went wrong.
