Tobin, John H. – International Journal of Learning and Change, 2009
Executive power and status depends on others' belief in the executive's capacity for control via rational decision-making, "by the numbers" and above the fray of day to day minutia. By exploring his own experience in the complex social dynamics of a long, complicated merger process--characterised by misunderstanding, incomplete…

Groot, Nol – International Journal of Learning and Change, 2009
All executives strive for better results in their organisations and they are always dependent on others to achieve these results.

In today's business thinking, innovation is commonly equated with progress, indicating an underlying assumption that company management have the power to choose a specific future and control the way into it.

Manikutty, Sankaran – International Journal of Learning and Change, 2009
The steadily increasing degree of globalisation of enterprises implies development of many skills, among which the skills to learn are among the most important.

Mitroff, Ian I.; Sanzgiri, Jyotsna – International Journal of Learning and Change, 2009
This article focuses on the importance of understanding different cultures through their everyday myths and stories. As an example, we examine the mythological fables of the Indian Panchatantra. Although the Panchatantra was written around 300 BCE, it still continues to be read and used as a guide. Since the stories of the Panchatantra are retold…

Dalal, Farhad – International Journal of Learning and Change, 2009
The article critically examines the ethos of the diversity movement in organisational life. The rationale for the diversity agenda is located within a particular turn taken by the philosophies of liberalism and multiculturalism. This results in the extreme idea that one ought not to criticise the ways and views of others--whatever they are.…

Mergel, Ines; Lazer, David; Binz-Scharf, Maria Christina – International Journal of Learning and Change, 2008
Knowledge is essential for the functioning of every social system, especially for professionals in knowledge-intensive organisations. Since individuals do not possess all the work-related knowledge that they require, they turn to others in search for that knowledge. While prior research has mainly focused on antecedents and consequences of…

Kasper, Helmut; Muhlbacher, Jurgen; Muller, Barbara – International Journal of Learning and Change, 2008
In dealing with Knowledge Management (KM) literature, we have to diagnose three essential points: first, we have detected a lack of comprehensive theoretical models based on "grand theories", secondly, we have discovered an overemphasis of "good" values, like openness and trust, that help organisations to learn. And thirdly, we have to recognise…

Frost, Jetta; Vogel, Rick – International Journal of Learning and Change, 2008
In this article, we focus on think tanks as intermediaries between exploration and exploitation. To underpin our theoretical arguments on their linking function between both domains, we conducted a case study. The object of investigation is a think tank which has played a decisive role in the modernisation of the German public sector. The…

Brockmann, Erich N. – International Journal of Learning and Change, 2008
We contend that managers make better decisions when they are better able to tap into their vast storehouses of knowledge than their peers can. More specifically, we contend that accessing their tacit knowledge has the most noticeable and positive impact on their decision quality. Furthermore, techniques for better accessing knowledge can be…

Lauser, Barbel; Peters, Mike – International Journal of Learning and Change, 2008
After 30 years of research in mergers and acquisitions and advances in the research of post-merger integration (PMI) processes, the outcome of a merger remains hardly predicable. Traditional leadership and change theories have not succeeded in fully explaining PMI processes and therefore new theories are needed. This article offers new insights…

Li, Guo-Dong; Yamaguchi, Daisuke; Nagai, Masatake; Masuda, Shiro – International Journal of Learning and Change, 2008
In this paper, we propose a new prediction analysis model which combines the first order one variable Grey differential equation Model (abbreviated as GM(1,1) model) from grey system theory and time series Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) model from statistics theory. We abbreviate the combined GM(1,1) ARIMA model as ARGM(1,1)…

Sun, Hongyi; Ho, Kario; Ni, Wenbin – International Journal of Learning and Change, 2008
There are still many questions remain unanswered about the relationship between Organisational Learning (OL) and Continuous Improvement (CI). For example, how do OL and CI contribute to business performance? Are OL and CI equal? Do OL and CI support each other? Should OL and CI be implemented separately or together? If together, how to integrate…
