Why Organizations Don’t Learn

Why Organizations Don’t Learn | Organisational Maturity | Scoop.it
Our traditional obsessions—success, taking action, fitting in, and relying on experts—undermine continuous improvement.
Paul Dyer's insight:

Organisations become increasingly complex in the drive to grow, to be more competitive, to be the best in their respective field. Employees join and are expected to mesh in with the great mechanism to success.  The euphoria of a new job, an opportunity to prove oneself and make a mark can all too quickly fizzle like the proverbial damp squib.  It is worrying how many of us ultimately tow the line, give in and fit in.  This article points out what may be obvious; but the obvious is overlooked time and time again.  If every organisation went back to human behaviour basics, it would make any more complex tasks, such as risk management, so much easier to accomplish.

Want to Innovate Government? Focus on Culture | PublicCEO | Organisational Maturity | Scoop.it
By Ben Balter. When innovating in government, the technology’s the easy part. Innovative efforts often do one of two things: They take long-established technology from the private sector and inject it into an agency, or They reimagine long-assumed processes from the citizen’s perspective.
