Bogomtale fra forlaget.

Debate about organization and workplace learning has now moved on from viewing learning as a way of fostering control, to paving the way for viewing learning, working and living in the context of organizational complexity. The book suggests that by focusing on learning as a way of living, the needs of production can be reconciled with the need for employees to have satisfying engagement with their work.
