I think it's an excellent question, why does the learning organization get

There are successful case examples, but there are also lots of people
who've tried it and then withdrawn the effort.

One factor is that this is not easy, and there are some serious skills
needed. Just wanting to be a learning organization isn't enough. I look to
see if people are serious, serious enough to build the skills, stay with
it through the rough spots... Serious enough about the benefits in order
to stay with it. No one said it would be easy.
