Completely Updated and Revised
This third edition of The Explanation Age contains 75 new pages and provides “an inspiring visualization of the new learning organization.” The Explanation Age is where business psychology catches up to the knowledge economy. This is where models based on “sense-making” replace business process models based on “box-checking.” And this is how organizations produce thought leaders, not just experts.
You can master the “language” of thought-leadership!
• Learn the real difference between experts and thought leaders
• Learn how to develop an organization of thought leaders
• Learn how the 6 modes of the mind are misaligned with current change models
• Learn how better explanations lead to better decisions
• Learn the 8 reasons behind every explanation
• Learn the “language” of collaborative decision making
The current organizational practices are broken at the “model level,” affecting organizational learning, inventiveness, productivity, and transparency in decision making. A “true” learning organization operates from learning models, not manufacturing models. If you have tried Six Sigma in business and instinctively knew that this factory-driven method was wrong for the knowledge economy—then you are ready for the Explanation Age. If you have wanted to replace Bloom’s Taxonomy in education, but haven’t found the right model—then you are ready for the Explanation Age. And if you are someone who never stopped asking “why”—then you are ready for the Explanation Age. This book represents a culmination of more than two decades of research into the models that drive learning, decision-making, and performance improvement. This “third edition” includes additional business examples, and provides more detailed explanations. The Explanation Age is truly a must-read for innovative leaders, decision-makers, and reformers in business, education, and policy-making.
