About the book:

This is the first time that the seminal work on organizational learning done over many years by Chris Argyris (one of the US' most eminent management thinkers and educationalists) has been drawn together to give a complete picture of his outstanding contribution in the field. For anyone who needs to understand how organizations work, evolve, and learn, this book will be essential reading. The themes of how organizations learn and how organizational politics function define the continuing importance and relevance of the key issues which the pieces in the book address:. * Organizational learning and Action Science. * Organizational effectiveness, and what inhibits it. * Organizational development and human resource activities. * Usable knowledge and how it is inhibited. The author's focus on the defensive and protective processes which block organizations from learning has opened them up to a new form of scrutiny, and demonstrates the liberating alternatives created by scientific investigation.
