This is an excellent collection of readings, many of them published originally in a special edition of Organization Science in 1991. Authors include such luminaries as March, Simon, Starbuck, Weick, and Winter. The book contains many stimulating and often contradictory perspectives. For example, whilst Simon argues that all learning takes place inside individual human heads, Weick and Roberts posit the existence and significance of what they call collective minds, the pattern of heedful interrelations of actions in a social system.. In their introduction, the editors suggest that this set of papers on organizational learning challenges conventional organization theory in three ways: 1.they focus on action rather than choice; 2.they emphasize dynamics, with stability interpreted in that context; and 3.they explain organizational coherence rather than assuming it. The reader should find here a rich seam to mine for an understanding of current perspectives in this field.
