“In earlier periods of predictable and manageable change, the transfer of culture and the development of a prescribed range of skills, habits, and attitudes evolved from the experience of earlier generations led to forms of education that created communities based on constants, uniformity and efficiency. In periods of rapid and punctuated change these same dynamics inhibit human learning, and subsequently spawn social and economic stagnation. The challenge now is for communities to begin building new organizations for learning that handle both the skills of the past, and enables the understanding and coordination of constant change, life-long learning, diversity, and complexity. “ – John Abbott.
