The Importance of Learning in Organizations

In this Harvard Business Review video, David Garvin and Amy Edmondson are interviewed in regards to how important it is to develop, maintain, and support a learning organization. In particular, the ten minute talk discusses how to on-board managers at every level to assure successful implementation of a learning organization.
