Today, as was pointed out in this chapter about organizational learning, organizations must have a culture that learns and anticipates change. New product development, advanced information technology and the economy are changing so rapidly that any examples would be soon out-ofdate.

However, if the appropriate organization culture is in place, then such rapid change can be welcomed and accommodated with as little disruption and as few problems as possible. 1. 2. 3.

A PLC is more than simply a collection of teachers working together or a social network of educators who share stories, materials, and advice (Coburn & Russell, 2008; Protheroe, 2008). In fact, the PLC concept often is misused to describe committees, grade-level teams, and/or weekly planning meetings in which the participants undertake data-based decision making (DuFour, 2004; Jessie, 2007).

While these groups may share some similarities of purpose with PLCs, the philosophy and characteristics of a PLC differentiate and define it.
