'Organizational learning, development and planned change cannot be understood without considering culture as a primary source of resistance to change.' Thus argues Schein in the second edition of this seminal book. The work is organized into six parts, dealing with a.what culture is and does; b.the dimensions of culture; c.how to study and interpret culture; d.the role of leadership in building culture; e.the evolution of culture and leadership and; f.learning cultures and learning leaders. Schein's discussion of learning draws explicitly on the thinking of Donald Michael, Tom Malone and Peter Senge and asserts that the leaders of the future will have to be perpetual learners. This is a highly readable book, which pulls together insights from both the academic and practitioner worlds. Its canvass is broad but represents the real depth of understanding that comes from an expert who has spent years developing his knowledge of this topic.
