Organizations around the world today are struggling to stay ahead of the pack. With its fanciful illustrations and deliciously wicked humor, Outlearning the Wolves is the story of an organization that might resemble yours--complete with bad habits, nagging vulnerabilities, and resignation to the status quo.

A flock of sheep, fearful of the wolves' mythical cleverness, is initially debilitated by fragmentation and false assumptions.

But as the sheep build a culture for learning, the contributions of each individual are utilized in strikingly new and productive ways. By working together, the flock develops the capability for dramatic learning that ensures it can thrive while facing fresh challenges.

Outlearning the Wolves presents a powerful metaphor for understanding the issues organizations face when they realize they must learn how to learn differently. Any organization seeking to build both a rewarding workplace and a thriving enterprise should introduce these ideas to every worker--from the front line to the boardroom.

Outlearning the Wolves is a unique resource for teachers and learners across a broad range of settings. Included is a concise guide to the story's essential points--a ready-made lesson outline, perfect for directing group learning.

Great book about leadership to problem solve. I’ve given this book away countless times to teachers, friends, and pastors. You can read it in a few hours. Keep an extra copy on your shelf if you are a leader who supports professional training.

I use this book as a reference in several public courses that I teach. I purchased more than two dozen for my leadership team at church. My daughter has read the book at least four times since she was 7 years old. It is a great talking piece for adults and children.

From the beginning, one finds oneself within a paradigm of resigned helplessness. What has always been will always be. For a public school administrator who recognizes the need to break this paradigm, Outlearning the Wolves provides a graphic yet humorous approach to change. The reader is quick to draw parallels between the life-and-death existence of the sheep and those challenges which face a school faculty. Who are the leaders? Who are the wolves? What is the place of "history" in problem-solving? Are there alternatives to "fate," or are we always going to be victims? As a building (high school) principalI will ask my Leadership Council to read the book and follow up with discussion.

My undergraduate students love this book! Teaching systems thinking in a military college is not as unlikely as it might seem but it does present challenges. This book has proven very successful as a 'launching pad' for the semester's work, keeping their attention while presenting key concepts succinctly. It's a safe bet that if it can engage people who have 28 hours of tasks to cram into a 24-hour day, it would be worth its weight in gold in a manufacturing setting, a dot.com company, or anywhere busy people are balancing production with growing an organization.

Outlearning the wolves,
By David Hutchens.
This book is a short and at times funny book. It is fast and easy too read, but still has good content. It is about how one sheep in a flock spoke out in an effort to stop wolf related casualties (WRC). This sheep motivated the flock and they started too try and find a way too stop the wolf. They all put their thoughts together and pieced together the mystery of how the wolfs were getting to their pen and then found a way to stop it. But they would still have trouble...

Had to read the book for school and it was quite interesting and a cool way to explain the different aspects of systems thinking.
A short, easy read that is a modern-day fable about how systems work. Charming and enlightening. Good discussion questions at the end--this book could be applied to so many work and life experiences. Funny, too!
