Learning Organisation

KFP 3: Learning Organisation

To be resilient, an organisation needs to ensure that learning and development is at the heart of all that they do. Developing a learning organisation is the third Key Foundational Principle. A learning organisation is one in which:

  • Beliefs, goals and objectives are shared and underpinned by social work values.
  • Individuals, teams and the organisation itself reflect and learn from experience.
  • An evidence-informed approach to improving practice and managing change, with input from staff, is actively encouraged.
  • Problems provide learning opportunities rather than individual blame or scapegoating.
