Abstract and Keywords

This chapter explores how organizations’ cultures learn and coevolve in dynamic relationship with the ecosystems they are within as well as in relation to the functions, teams, and individuals within them. It begins by exploring how the whole paradigm of learning, knowing, and epistemology has radically changed in the last fifty years to understanding learning as an embodied, embedded, and collective process that flows within and between people, is collaboratively created and held within teams and communities, and is co-created between any entity and its larger ecosystem. It then explores how this means we need to rethink organizational learning from organizations enabling the learning of the individual employees to the systemic learning of how systemic entities learn in dynamic relationship with the subsystems within them and the ecosystems they are part of.

Keywords: organizational learning, culture, unlearning, systemic learning, coevolution, learning organization
