Replying to LO19835 --

While I have not been along for the ride on this thread, I always
interpreted Unconscious Competence as the highest level of performance.
Using the Sports or Tradesperson analogy, we first start to get in the
groove by practicing hard, and eventually, with enough practice, it "comes
naturally" without really thinking about it!

Since competence is "performance in action" rather than knowledge, which
can exist as a static attribute, then when we discuss a Learning-org, are
we talking about knowledge or competence as being the outcome of the
process for the organization?

I guess I think it is the latter since knowledge cannot be measured.
