From the Back Cover:

In today's business world, competitive advantage is achieved only when executives, managers, and their organizations are able to harness the power of knowledge by promoting and maximizing intentional learning at work. Based on the authors' rigorous 12-year study, this essential guide provides a dynamic blueprint for implementing intentional learning in the workplace, both individually and company-wide. Drawing on interviews with today's business leaders, The Learning Edge reveals where and how the best learning occurs, and shows what you should be learning to increase your value to your firm and to position yourself for future success. With the aid of charts, graphs, and personal action plans, the book reveals the five S.M.A.R.T. components essential to the learning process, including how you can: Select a learning goal. Map out a detailed learning plan. Act on your plan to make learning part of your daily routine. Review what you've accomplished and evaluate what you've learned. Target your next learning goal. At the same time, The Learning Edge examines the cutting-edge practices of Eastman Kodak, Corning, Motorola, Boeing, J.P. Morgan and other pacesetters to reveal how any company can transform itself into a flexible and responsive learning organization that consistently outthinks and outmaneuvers the competition. Detailed yet far-reaching, The Learning Edge arms both you and your organization with the tools and processes that are critical to individual and corporate success.

From Publishers Weekly:

Wick, a fellow at MIT and adjunct professor at the Wharton School, urges on-the-job training through the assignment of increasingly responsible tasks to subordinates. Aided by freelance writer Leon, he rather too repetitively details learning methods for managers themselves that are useful at all organization levels. Self-education occurs whether the structure of a learning environment is formal or informal, he acknowledges, but in the workplace it is essential to supervise and encourage staff members as they learn. The authors contend, validly, that increasing one's skills is the key to corporate success--a conviction voiced by CEOs of Fortune 500 companies in the abundant direct quotations--and they examine specific strategies practiced at Corning, Kodak, Rosenbluth Travel, J. P. Morgan and Motorola. Business managers will find this guide motivating and useful. Newbridge Executive Book Club dual main selection; author tour.
