This short paper will introduce some tools and processes that can be used to develop a more strategic approach to organisational learning. They were developed over a two‐year action research project carried out by Business Lab ( in Aberdeen, Scotland, involving dozens of UK and international companies, government agencies, and educational institutions. The toolset, called LearningEdge, evolved out of the best practices of these organisations and learning organisation theory. Calliope Learning has been using the toolset in the North American market since 2003.
