A Process-Philosophical Understanding of Organizational Learning as "Wayfinding": Process, Practices and Sensitivity to Environmental Affordances
Chia, Robert
Learning Organization, v24 n2 p107-118 2017
Purpose: This paper aims to articulate a practice-based, non-cognitivist approach to organizational learning. Design/methodology/approach: This paper explores the potential contribution of a process-based "practice turn" in social theory for understanding organizational learning. Findings: In complex, turbulent environments, robust organizations recur more to cultivated sensitivities and predispositions rather than rely on elaborate plans and strategies to guide their action; they "Wayfind" their way to sustainable success. Originality/value: This study develops the understanding of organizational learning as a process of everyday practical coping guided by internalized sensitivities and predispositions.
