The Link between Individual and Organizational Learning
The topic of organizational learning has gained a lot of attention, but there is little agreement on what organizational learning means and even less on how to create a learning organization. The critical issue is how individual learning is transferred to the organization. The author develops a model that links individual and organizational learning through mental models, the thought constructs that affect how people and organizations operate in the world. His model can guide the search for new tools to help organizations learn.
