Chef

"Management issues mostly focus on the executive perspective. The authors instead emphasise the role of the employees and Benchlearning as a method to develop the "learning organisation". There is substantial new pedagogical thinking and the book constitutes a good example of creative innovation in Swedish management thinking."
Dagens Industri

Following the success of his previous book, Benchmarking - A Signpost to Excellence in Quality Productivity, Bengt Karlöf creates a new concept - Benchlearning - by combining the practical technique of benchmarking with the more abstract ideas of Knowledge Management and Organisational Learning.

Benchlearning details a completely new way of thinking which provides insights, methods and tools which deal with the continually increasing importance of the human element in organisational development, acknowledges existing theories of knowledge formation and provides case histories (such as Ericsson) and methods with which these new Benchlearning concepts can be applied.

The main feature of the book is how to combine efficiency with organisational learning. Using examples from different organisations Benchlearning shows how to monitor efficiency, provide inspiration for a development drive, and illustrate how people's attitudes can be influenced. This emphasis on learning from other people's experience is a key point for successful development.

The application of the authors concepts promotes a win-win-win situation - Employee performance improves as they learn to develop, customers gain more value and choice and owners benefit from a more competitive organisation. This book provides the next step in benchmarking.

From the Back Cover:

Further to the success of Benchmarking - A Signpost to Excellence in Quality & Productivity, this latest book creates a new concept, 'Benchlearning'. Building from an established level of understanding, this innovative new approach combines the practical technique of benchmarking with the more topical ideas of knowledge management and organisational learning. By so doing, the authors show that it is possible to move on from pure comparison to benefit from the knowledge and experience of others and create a real learning organisation.

Examples from a range of organisations including Ericsson, show how to monitor efficiency, provide inspiration for a development drive, and illustrate how to influence people's attitudes. Learning from other people's experience, in combination with the principles of organisational learning, is critical for successful organisational development.

Benchlearning principles can be applied to almost any group or company to promote a win-win-win situation: employees performance improves as they learn to develop, customers gain more value and choice, and owners benefit from a more competitive organisation.

This book answers the question 'how do you know that your operation is efficient?' It is the next step in benchmarking.

From the Inside Flap:

This new method integrates efficient methods and human development at a time when such integration is recognised as increasingly vital to organisational success. It:
* offers practical inspiration on improving quantitative goals - company performance and competitiveness - by influencing the attitudes of people within the organisation

* provides a new method combining the qualities of both the learning organisation and knowledge management

* shows how this concept can be applied using case studies and illustrations, and the results of pilot projects

* describes practical perspectives and tools on management and learning theory
This book will be invaluable to senior and middle managers, consultants and practitioners, and MBA students, as well all those working within organisations who are keen to improve and develop their performance.
