The report pertains to the long-term project undertaken by District 10-0 of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to understand and promote the concepts of a learning organization using the principles espoused by MIT Professor Peter Senge.

The project was intended to improve the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for organizational development and to integrate the principles of systems thinking in the organization. The results of the project and the training program, as evidenced by several testing and observation tools, show significant improvement in all the three aspects for the participants -- knowledge, skills, and attitudes. The report outlines the details of the project including the training program, the pedagogy, the composition of the groups of trainees, the tests, assignments, and results of the program.
