Sustainability: Not What You Think It Is

Senior Lecturer in Behavioral and Policy Sciences at MIT Sloan School of Management, Peter Senge has
lectured extensively throughout the world, translating the abstract ideas of systems theory into tools for
better understanding of economic and organizational change. He is the founding chair of the Society for
Organizational Learning (SoL), a global community of corporations, researchers, and consultants
dedicated to the "interdependent development of people and their institutions."

Senge is the author of the widely acclaimed The Fifth Discipline: The Art and Practice of The Learning
Organization (1990). His latest book is The Necessary Revolution: How Individuals and Organizations are Working Together to Create a Sustainable World (Doubleday Currency, 2008), which details the way
companies around the world are leading the change from "business as usual" tactics to transformative
strategies essential for creating a flourishing, sustainable world. Senge spoke with MIT Sloan
Management Review Editor-in-Chief Michael S. Hopkins.
