Doing More with Less by Anthi Theipoulou

Another book I received under an impression of self-help and turned out as a full technical book. "Doing More with Less" is a managerial technical book focusing on organization learning science. Being an expert of OLSET, Anthi Theiopoulou has done a good job.

Book Blurb
A sustainable learning organization always has a competitive advantage, and organizational-learning tools can provide businesses of any size with the ability to achieve more with less. This innovation in management is based in science and backed by numerous successful applications.

Author Anthi Theiopoulou, MSc, conducted breakthrough research in organizational learning (OL) best practices and the operationalization of OL principles. As a leading international expert, she offers this guide for applying OL to any business and measuring the outcome.
This overview is for leaders and researchers from a range of backgrounds. It begins by reviewing management strategies and the most current research on OL. Part two covers each component of OL in greater depth to allow leaders to design and implement their own systems. Part three is a sample OL management system, which is highly customizable, uniquely scalable, and it includes the organizational learning self-evaluation tool-or OLSET-developed by the author at the University of Liverpool. This unique element of the methodology allows leaders to conduct an OL capacity audit.
The result of years of experience and research, Doing More with Less turns science into practice. These empirically based guidelines and techniques have the power to make organizations successful in any future.

Book covers following areas
  • What are OL and OLSET?
  • Why is it required?
  • How to strategize OLSET?
  • How to achieve & maintain it?
  • Reference for OLSET
Well, I skipped many pages but went through each section and got the basic idea.

The book can be really helpful to an organization for better knowledge management. It shows scientific approach to achieve better results.
