An interesting summary post here from Emergent by Design on organisational culture and learning for adaptive capacity giving a summary of The Culture Game book. I would particularly pick out the following the implied double-loop learning of examine your norms. As the post goes on to state: Treating various tasks and interactions as experiments has […]

A New Agenda for Organisational Effectiveness?

Earlier this week, I went to a CIPD Knowledge into Practice Seminar and launch of the CIPD book, People & Organisational Development: a new agenda for organisational effectiveness.
