Imperatives of Organisation Learning Types
Ullhas Pagey, India
Kurt Lewin's model of unfreezing, moving & refreezing would further reinforce the points put forward by Prahalad, Hamel & Dodgson above. Single loop learning has managerial imperatives; Double loop learning has knowledge management and leadership imperatives, whereas Deutero learning has change management imperatives.

Lewin's Model
Charlie, UK
Lewin's model has recently lost some of its favour, as change is virtually constant. Nothing has a chance to freeze anymore.

Change Models
Lewins and now Edgar Schein's change model do not account for dynamic changes and relapses... which are big possibilities in current times of rapid change...

Chamutal Eitam, Other, Netherlands
And so, which other models do you two find more suitable for organizational learning?

Change Model by Quinn & Weick
Connie Barensten, Partner, Netherlands
The variation on Lewin's model by Quinn & Weick is based on the premises that change is the constant factor in organizations, so they suggest the model has to be: Freeze > Rebalance > Unfreeze.
