Short biography
Peter Senge received a B.S. in Aerospace engineering from Stanford University. While at Stanford, Senge also studied philosophy. He later earned an M.S. in social systems modeling from MIT in 1972. He also earned a Ph.D. from the MIT Sloan School of Management in 1978.[1][2]

He was the Director of the Center for Organizational Learning at the MIT Sloan School of Management, and is presently (2005) on the faculty at MIT.

He is the founding chair of the Society for Organizational Learning (SoL). This organization helps with the communication of ideas between large corporations. It replaced the previous organization known as, The center for Organizational Learning at MIT.

He has had a regular meditation practice since 1996 and began meditating with a trip to Tassajara, a Zen Buddhist monastery, before attending Stanford.[3] He recommends meditation or similar forms of contemplative practice.

Il pensiero sistemico, pur essendo cosa nota dai tempi di Aristotele, è senza dubbio non banale per il pubblico aziendalista. Il libro è dotato di formulazioni molto buone, anche se forse in alcune parti oscilla fra il prolisso e il demagogico (vedi il tema della "padronanza personale").

Some books are perspective changing and some take a perspective already inside of you and develop it into a much more powerful and actionable set of tools. The Fifth Discipline is the latter sort of book. It is like an application of my attitude toward life directly to organizational leadership.

Even though this book is fairly short, it took me weeks to read. Every time I read it, there was an observation or a tool that I had to think about or share. (And oh, how I love systems thinking.)

There are many summaries available online, so I won't try to add another. Instead, I'll just say that if this book sounds at all intriguing to you, you should read it.
