"Management issues mostly focus on the executive perspective. Theauthors instead emphasise the role of the employees andBenchlearning as a method to develop the "learning organisation".There is substantial new pedagogical thinking and the bookconstitutes a good example of creative innovation in Swedishmanagement thinking."
Dagens Industri

Following the success of his previous book, Benchmarking - ASignpost to Excellence in Quality Productivity, Bengt Karlöfcreates a new concept - Benchlearning - by combining the practicaltechnique of benchmarking with the more abstract ideas of KnowledgeManagement and Organisational Learning.

Benchlearning details a completely new way of thinking whichprovides insights, methods and tools which deal with thecontinually increasing importance of the human element inorganisational development, acknowledges existing theories ofknowledge formation and provides case histories (such as Ericsson)and methods with which these new Benchlearning concepts can beapplied.

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

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

From the Back Cover:

Further to the success of Benchmarking - A Signpost to Excellencein Quality & Productivity, this latest book creates a newconcept, 'Benchlearning'. Building from an established level ofunderstanding, this innovative new approach combines the practicaltechnique of benchmarking with the more topical ideas of knowledgemanagement and organisational learning. By so doing, the authorsshow that it is possible to move on from pure comparison to benefitfrom the knowledge and experience of others and create a reallearning organisation.

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

Benchlearning principles can be applied to almost any group orcompany to promote a win-win-win situation: employees performanceimproves as they learn to develop, customers gain more value andchoice, and owners benefit from a more competitiveorganisation.

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

From the Inside Flap:

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

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

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

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