Learning Organizations and the Paradigm of Complexity: the Work Design Approach - Paper presented - ODAM 2005 Dudziak, Sznelwar, Plonski. The objective of this paper is presents a novel framework for organizational design and management based on complexity theory

In particular, it discusses how the work system design in learning organization can be conceived, as a human process, according to a complex perspective.

    • Learning Organizations and the Paradigm of Complexity: the Work Design Approach Department of Production Engineering, University of Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil ODAM 2005 Elisabeth Dudziak Laerte Sznelwar Guilherme Plonski
    • Objectives of this paper
      • The objective of this paper is presents a novel framework for organizational design and management based on complexity theory
      • In particular, it discusses how the work system design in learning organization can be conceived, as a human process, according to a complex perspective
    • Issues
        • Complexity Theory
        • Complexity Theory applied to Organizational and Management Studies
        • Learning Organization Concept
        • Learning Organization and the Complexity Approach
        • The Changing World of Work
    • Complexity Theory
      • The complexity of Complexity
        • From Latin Complexus : to embrace
      • The Complexity origins
        • Cybernetic Studies
        • Leading pioneers in complexity include Prigogine and Stangers (1984), Maturana and Varela (1980), Kauffman (1993), Mandelbrot (1977), and Morin (1973).
      • The Complex Thinking
        • Nonlinear dynamics systems
    • Complexity Theory applied to Organizational and Management Studies
      • Three Levels
        • Linear, Mechanicist
        • Sociotechnical System
        • Sociological System
          • non-linear dynamic system, with focus on relationships, interactions, learning, innovation and dialogic processes
          • Organization is self-organized, autonomous and self-sustainable
    • Complexity Research applied to Organizational Studies Relationships Interdependent Processes
      • Aggregate or Relational Complexity
      Chaos Theory Chaordic Organization Theory
      • Deterministic Complexity
      Mathematical simulation
      • Algorithm Complexity
      Characteristics Typology of Complexity
    • Learning Organization Concept
      • became a classic subject in the Theory of the Organizations from the ends of the 70’ decade
      • conceptual discussions
      • Peter Senge (1999) and five disciplines
    • How does complexity approach allow a better understand of Learning Organization?
      • L.O. can be conceived as a complex system of interaction among individuals, networks and organizations, according to an organic metaphor
    • The Changing World of Work
      • The work system is not a linear system
      • it is a dynamic decision making based on a heuristic competence
      • Variations enrich the work
      • Self-directed learning and autonomy
      • Participatory ergonomics
      • Greater flexibility in working arrangements
    • The Changing World of Work
      • Complexity gives a base to understand human factors in organizations
      • the work is conceived as a integrative and relational activity,
      • it is based on work contents and work interactions
    •
