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 - Odam Learning Organizations and the Paradigm of Complexity: the Work Design Approach - Odam Presentation Transcript

  • 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
  •
