Abstract: Learning type party organization takes the learning type organization theory as the basis. The
paper researches the theory of the learning type party organization. The author thinks from the point of
learning type organization theory and opinion, we believe learning type party organization building must
start from the following areas: learning atmosphere, learning condition and environment, organization
spirit, systematic thinking and team learning. Only by this way sound foundation can be set up for the
building of a good learning type organization.

1 Preface
From the point of the development of socialism with Chinese characteristics and new project of party
building, the fourth session of 17th National People's Congress puts forward the strategic task of
building a Marxism learning type party and emphasizes building all-level party organizations into
learning type ones. We will develop the strong atmosphere of advocating study, learning from books,
practices and the masses, optimizing knowledge structure, improving overall quality and boosting
innovative ability, thus all-level party organizations will grow into learning pattern organ and all-level
leading bodies will grow into learning pattern body. In February 2010 General Office of the Communist
Party of China(CPC) Central Committee print and distributed the notice' Suggestions on Promoting the
Building of learning Type Party Organizations' in which overall deploy and arrangement were made for
the building of learning type party organization(Hereafter LTPO).
For the important front of party organization, higher education institutions must in line with the
requirements of CPC Central Committee and ' Suggestions on Promoting the Building of learning Type
Party Organizations' strengthen the building of learning type party organization and make themselves
the important front of nurturing talent, science researching, social service and leading the development
of social culture.
2 Connotation of Learning Party Organization
Learning type party organization takes the learning type organization theory as the basis. Professor of
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Hereafter MIT), Forrester was the first person who conceived
learning type organization theory. In 1965 he utilized system dynamic to build an ideal form for the
future enterprise organization— layer flattening, organization information and structure opening. The
leader-member relation gradually shifted from affiliation to co-worker partnership. In the process of
development it would consistently study and adjust the structure relation. After him Garate, Senge,
Pedler, Gavyn and many other famous scholars also did deeper researches on learning type organization.
They defined learning type organization as this. "It is an organization forming in which organization
members will actively produce valuable things such as innovation, efficiency and better coordination
with environment under the way of competitive edge." Petter Senge, scholar of MIT completed the most
famous research. Petter Senge put forward the five elements of learning type organization: Building
Shared Vision; Team learning; improve Mental Models; Personal Mastery; System Thinking. His five
element theory produced profound influence on learning type organization research work.
So that from the point of learning type organization theory and opinion, we define the LTPO as this, it is
an organization form in which members of all institutions and party bodies can do positive study and

produce valuable things, namely better coordinate reform, efficiency and environment under the way of
competition. The fundamental target of building LTPO is to spur party members play advanced
functions in organization learning, positively and voluntarily promote party organization in efficient and
harmonious and better provide driving force for the development of all institutions.
3 Main Factors of LTPO Building
From the point of learning type organization theory and opinion, we believe LTPO building must start
from the following areas: learning atmosphere, learning condition and environment, organization spirit,
systematic thinking and team learning. Only by this way sound foundation can be set up for the building
of a good learning type organization.
3.1 The Important Basis of LTPO Building Is to Create Sound Atmosphere Filled with
Uprightness, Unity & Harmony and Vigour
Communist Party of China is a party organization being made of advanced members. Its members
usually have relatively high level knowledge and work ability. Evaluating from politic quality, politic
consciousness and work ability, every member is the advanced representative of his own industry. In
such an organization every one will have high demand for the organization atmosphere and expect
himself to play advanced example function. This requires us to remember in the process of building a
LTPO we should put the building of organization atmosphere of uprightness, unity & harmony and
vigour on the first place. For organization atmosphere building, uprightness is the basic prerequisite;
unity & harmony is the important guarantee; abounding vigour is the fundamental goal. The key of
"uprightness" lies in the head of an organization. The so called "uprightness" requires the head of unit
and organization follow the principle of "Respect ethic, emphasis behaviour code, strictly follow
discipline, not pursuit individual interests, put the whole situation in the mind, care little for fame and
gain, attach importance to friendship and love, take unity seriously, and contribute more to the society".
If the leader and cadre act uprightly and fairly, the tendencies of the whole organization will be healthy.
Members of the organization will think and act in accordance, complete task vigorously, develop in
unity & harmony and work with bountiful energy. There will be natural basis for the LTPO building.
3.2 The Core Content of LTPO Building Is to Develop Good Conditions and Environment Benefit
for and Suitable for Learning
Learning has already become everyone's inner need especially for the party organization formed by the
advanced representative of every industry. Everyone shares different learning method and learning
content. The key of organization learning is to create conditions and environment benefit for and
suitable for learning. What does "benefit for and suitable for learning" mean? Namely party organization
should create proper conditions and give support in learning expense, learning place, learning time,
1013
M & D FORUM
learning content and learning form. Therefore party members will have enough learning conditions,
learning time and learning content. If we fail to provide guarantee for learning condition and
environment and just talk in empty, ultimately the learning will become a mere formality and nothing
will be achieved. Hence the LTPO building must take creating conditions and environment benefit for
and suitable for learning as the core content.
3.3 Practice Learning, Thinking and Innovative Learning Road Is the Organization Spirit of
LTPO Building
Confucius said: "Is it not a pleasure, having learned something, to try it out at due intervals?” Learning
is the natural need for human being. It is a joyful job, also a happy enjoyment. As a LTPO, we must take
learning as the important basis for party organization. Nowadays the society is experiencing daily
changes. Only by constant learning can we keep up with the time and stand on the front of era
development. But the learning we talk about is a learning holding thinking and innovation rather than
bookworm learning. It requires us to combine learning and work practice together, learning with
thinking and learning with innovation. It requires us to take learning as a way to think about question
and resolve question with innovative resolution. Only by this way can we put what we have learned into
practice. Only by this way can we make learning a need and an enjoyment. In a word, the LTPO will
build up an organization spirit of constant studying, thinking and innovating.
3.4 Learn to Systematic Thinking Is the Key of Building LTPO
The concept of scientific development stressed that we must adhere to comprehensive, coordinating and
sustainable development and make overall arrangements. This requires us coordinate interests of all
related sides obtain right recognitions on the relation between individual interests and collective
interests, the relation between partial interests and overall interests, the relation between current interests
and long term interests and mobilize initiatives of concerned parties to handle those relations well. We
shall start from the overall situation, establish the concept of general situation and improve strategic
thinking. In this way can we grasp opportunity from the comprehensively changing environment and
meet this risks and challenges. Naturally we should consider the general situation, make overall
arrangements, resolve the urgent issues concerned to the masses interests and work hard to achieve
breakthrough. The party organization in higher education institutions is a community in which interests
of many sides coexist and conflict with each other. In the complicated environments and relations the
party members and cadres must properly handle the relation between individual interests and collective
interests, the relation between partial interests and overall interests, the relation between current interests
and long term interests; properly handle the relation between teacher and managing personnel, the
relation between teacher and student, the relation between teaching department and non-teaching
department. The party members and cadres should also learn to balance the school needs and working
institution's needs. As a result, the department interests will obey to school interests and individual
interests will obey to collective interests. Ultimately we will be competent to address all issues well in
the comprehensively changing development of higher education and we will catch chances and deal
with risks and challenges well. It is ensured that school will always develop on the right track.
3.5 Team Learning, the Important Carrier of Building LTPO
The building of LTPO requires us take the whole organization as an integrating study body rather than
implement dispersive, independent and individual study. That means we should carry out team learning.
The so called team learning refers to take the whole organization as an integrating study body in which
team members carry out passionate and effective research and study and plan future developing
direction and road for the team; every member will deeply think and explore individual and organization
development issues from the point of organization future. By this way can we collect the wisdom of all
the people, obtain deeper and better overall development strategy than individual thinking and better
serve the development of organization.

4 Conclusion
The building of LTPO will take quite a long time. It is both a process of theory exploring and a process
of practicing and exploiting. In that process we must take learning type organization as guiding light. In
line with the requirements and main factors of learning type organization we will guide and strengthen
the building of LTPO in the areas of learning atmosphere, learning condition & environment,
organization spirit, systematic thinking and team learning. Team members will carry out passionate and
effective research and learning; deeply think and explore individual and organization development
issues from the point of organization future consequently we can pool the wisdom of all the people, and
better serve the development of organization.
