From learning organization to wise organization

Gibbs, Paul ORCID logoORCID: and Rowley, Jennifer (2008) From learning organization to wise organization. Learning organization, 15 (5) . pp. 356-372. ISSN 0969-6474 [Article] (doi:10.1108/09696470810898357)


Although the notion of wisdom confronts the economic rationale of business organizations, this paper aims to argue that organizations are coming under increasing pressure not only to learn, change and adapt, but also to take actions that are ethically acceptable and respond to the expectations of multiple stakeholders, or in other words to act wisely. Accordingly this article seeks to progress the debate on the relationship between organizational learning, learning organizations and wisdom, in pursuit of a new version of the model of the learning organization, the practically wise organization.
