Offering fresh innovations, strategies, and concise explanations of long-held theories, this book includes new alternatives for practitioners and researchers. Argyris and Schon address the four principle questions which cut across the two branches of the field of organizational learning. Why is an organization a learning venue? Are real-world organizations capable of learning? What kinds of learning are desirable? How can organizations develop their capability for desirable kinds of learning? With new examples and the most up-to-date information on the technical aspects of organization and management theory, Argyris and Schon demonstrate how the research and practice of organizational learning can be incorporated in today's business environment.
Opinion by German Anitua Azkarate
This book fell into my hands in 1994 and since its first page caught my interest. "The more effective at learning the Organizations are more likely thay will be at being innovative or Knowing the limits of Their innovation". A short but deep meaning phrase. This is one of those books that the more times you read it the new are the meanings you get from its sentences. A book that should be read leisurely. At least I have marked half of its pages with references to aspects of immediate effect on our businesses. A must reading that should always be at reach.
