Hultman, Glenn; Klasson, Alger
Studies in Continuing Education, v20 n1 p51-69 May 1998
Action research in small companies attempting change used concepts of paradox and metaphor to examine change processes. Findings include the need to (1) discover change in mini-worlds (parts of organizations), (2) appreciate first-order learning, and (3) stabilize change and handle the forces trying to change stability. (Contains 46 references.) (SK)
