C OURSE O BJECTIVES Introduction to the Fifth Discipline An understanding of the principles underpinning a shared vision Show case study of FH-CMU and Montfort School
“I F YOU WANT TO BUILT A SHIP, DON ’ T DRUM UP PEOPLE TO COLLECT WOOD AND DON ’ T ASSIGN THEM TASKS AND WORK, BUT RATHER TEACH THEM TO LONG FOR THE ENDLESS IMMENSITY OF THE SEA.” A NTOINE DE S AINT –E XUPERY
L EARNING O RGANIZATION D EFINITION : P ETER S ENGE From The Fifth Discipline, 1990: “…organizations where people continually expand their capacity to create the results they truly desire, where new and expansive patterns of thinking are nurtured, where collective aspiration is set free, and where people are continually learning how to learn together.” 4
Fundamental Orientation: Creative Tension
The Art & Practice of the Learning organization Peter Senge 1.Personal Mastery. Learning organizations must be fully committed to the development of each individual's personal mastery--each individual's capacity to create their life the way they truly want. 2.Mental Models. Our vision of current reality has everything to do with the this discipline--mental models--because what we really have in our lives is constructions, internal pictures that we continually use of interpret and make sense out of the world. 3.Building Shared Vision. The idea of building shared vision stresses that you never quite finish it--it's an ongoing process.
4. Team Learning. Individual learning, no matter how wonderful it is or how great it makes us feel, if fundamentally irrelevant to organizations, because virtually all important decisions occur in groups. The learning unit of organizations are "teams," groups of people who need one another to act. 5. Systems Thinking. The last discipline, the one that ties them all together, is systems thinking.

I NTRODUCTION SV is the answer to the question “What do we want to create?” SV creates commitment, connectedness to those who hold it Provides the focus and energy for learning SV is subscribed to because it reflects the holder’s personal vision Prepared by James R. Burns
W HAT IS S HARED V ISION ? Ability to maintain a collective picture of a future that is sought Reflects a desire to be connected and becomes part of pursuing a larger purpose that is embodied in the organization’s services Commitment is by choice, not compliance Scenario planning: tool to build shared vision 18

W HY S HARED V ISIONS M ATTER Visionaries like Henry Ford, Steve Jobs, Theodore Vail, Kennedy were able to articulate their visions in ways that galvanized people to join with them Shared Vision uplifts people’s aspirations Making the motorcar affordable by everyone Accelerating learning through use of PC’s Bringing the world into communication through telecommunication Leaving footsteps on the Moon Making the world accessible through travel Prepared by James R. Burns
W HY ELSE DO S HARED V ISIONS M ATTER Shared Visions are exhilarating, exciting, galvanizing Allows people who mistrusted each other to work together High-performing teams have a strong sense of shared vision and purpose according to Abraham Maslov Shared Visions compel courage--doing whatever is needed in pursuit of the vision Learning organizations do not exist without Shared Vision Prepared by James R. Burns
L EARNING O RGANIZATIONS AND S HARED V ISION Vision establishes the overarching goal Shared Vision compels new ways of thinking and acting Shared Vision provides a rudder for keeping the learning process on course Prepared by James R. Burns
SV FOSTERS A LONG - TERM VIEW Japanese believe building a great organization is like growing a tree It takes 25 to 50 years Parents of young children try to lay a foundation of values and attitude that will serve an adult 20 years hence Strategic planning tends to reflect more of the “short-term” than “long-term” Corporate leaders are more immersed in the problems of today than the opportunities of tomorrow Prepared by James R. Burns

H OW O RG. C REATES A S HARED V ISION To be considered 1/3 Shared vision begins with employees developing their personal visions Org. must determine its core value, core purpose, and envision the desired future by asking employees the following questions: a) What are guiding principles for how we operate and work together? b) Why do we exist? c) What do we want to create?
H OW O RG. C REATES A S HARED V ISION To be considered 2/3 The emerging shared vision must be consistent with the org’s core, purpose and value. Likewise, it must in some way reflect the individual visions upon which it was built. This is the crucial point of creating harmony and commitment. Once a shared vision is developed, it is important to set success indicators or benchmarks that mark progress toward realizing the vision. A vision requires sustenance. It will die without ongoing dialogue.
H OW O RG. C REATES A S HARED V ISION To be considered 3/3 Org. need to view itself as a community where people are bound to the org. by the promise of what they can contribute, not by what they can get. “ Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country” JFK, 1961 A servant leader is one who emphasizes service to others, a holistic approach to work, creating a sense of community, and shared decision-making. Robert Greenleaf in Servant Leadership Everyone in org. will need to develop patience, perspective, and perseverance as you embark on this journey. Developing shared vision is a change process, and like any change process, it will be harder to manage initially than it will be further in to the process.
R ELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN P URPOSE, V ISION, AND V ALUES Visions make the purpose (mission) more concrete and tangible Core values are necessary to help people with day-to-day decision making Purpose is abstract, vision is long term But core values must be translatable into concrete behaviors Prepared by James R. Burns
C OMMON R EASON W HY V ISIONS D IE Org. believes employees are committed to the vision when in fact they are only compliant During the process of SV, the diversity of personal visions, the diversity of personal visions creates the conflicting visions and polarization. (just a set of personal visions) The gap between the current reality and the vision is too wide Employees have not developed the ability to hold the visions in face of current reality.
C OMMON R EASON W HY V ISIONS D IE The immediacy of the day-to-day demands competes with the need for long planning. Employees may complain it takes too much time and/or feel unproductive. Org. believes that they are done – it does not see the visioning process as an on-going dialogue that maintains its sense of community. Note: Although creating a shared vision is a time- consuming process that often feels lacking in direction, it sets the stage for achieving the desired future. It is the foundation upon which all else will be constructed and without a solid foundation, future works will be shaky as best.
