About the 6Ds®



The 6Ds® are the six disciplines practiced by the most effective learning organizations. Our practice is based on our best-selling book, The Six Disciplines of Breakthrough Learning, now in its third edition, which Will Thalheimer called "the most important book in the workplace learning field in the past decade."
