To many people in business learning means training. They seem to see learning as a frill, with no link to business results (or other desired results). At worst, learning means "taking in information" -listening to a lecture or reading an assigned text, with no relevance to the future you are creating. Training is the single most important factor in actually improving quality, once commitment to do so is present. Learning always occurs over time and in "real life" contexts, may be difficult to control, but it generates knowledge that lasts, enhanced capacity for effective learners action in settings that matter to the learner. That means quality learning and training must be continuous to meet not only changes in technology, but also changes involving the environment in witch an organization operates, its structure, and perhaps most important of all the people who work there. All organizations learn-in the sense of adapting as the world around them changes. But some organizations are faster and more effective learners.
